Description

Winner of BC's Remarkable Experience Award, Horne Lake is a natural gem located only 25 minutes north of Parksville/Qualicum Beach. Crystal clear water and spectacular scenery combined with fun family adventures make this one of the best outdoor destinations on Vancouver Island.

Bring out the "Wild Within"! Horne Lake Caves offers visitors the chance to experience the magic of the underground world, above or below ground. Tours depart daily from the park Visitor Centre. For those that prefer their activity above-ground, check out the cave theatre and educational signage along Fossil Trail that leads to the cave's entrances - you don't have to go in a cave to enjoy this park!

Discover amazing crystal formations, ancient fossils, and underground waterfalls. Come and see why Horne Lake Cave Park was voted the "Best Natural Outdoor Site in BC" by Attractions Canada and is TripAdvisor's "#1 Thing to do in Qualicum Beach"!
