Little Huson Caves Hiking Tour
The Little Huson Caves Park is a serene and stunning natural wonder of Vancouver Island North. The karst formations and caves are made from limestone that was formed during the Upper Triassic Period which was over 199 million years ago. The most impressive part of the park is the 'cathedral' cave which has a river running through it and a tunnel at the end. The forest that the park resides in is made up of second-growth cedar and hemlock and a plethora of mosses and ferns. This tour is a photographer and naturalists dream!
