Land Activities > Caving

“Canada possesses a large number of caves that range in level of difficulty and length, offering something for every adventurer.

Caving is an adventure sport which carries inherent risks such as flooding, rock instability, falls, getting stuck, getting lost, light failure, exhaustion, and hypothermia. Your chances of being injured are significantly reduced by danger awareness and knowledge of equipment and techniques.

If you’re a first-timer, start by taking a tour with a recognized Cave Tour Operator.

Then, if you’re still keen to become a caver, contact one of the organized groups in your area.

Before you head out, ensure that you carry proper, reliable equipment and know how to use it safely.

While you’re captivated by the wonders of the subterranean world, please practice the Caver’s Code of Conduct and remember to respect:

  • your experience – cave within your physical/mental ability and limitations; and,
  • the environment – stick to established underground routes and practice the caver’s motto: “Take nothing but pictures, kill nothing but time, leave no trace.”

Regardless of your experience level, never go caving alone and always leave a Trip Plan!
