The Andy Goode Plateau is considered one of the top caving destinations in Canada, and for good reason! Home to dozens of caves including some of the country’s longest, this small area truly is a caving paradise.
Join us for an amazing adventure in a stunning setting, high in the southern Canadian Rockies. We offer 1 and 2-day tours so you can choose a pace that works for you. Both tours begin with an exciting 45 minute 4x4 ride complete with river crossings! (vehicles provided).
The 1-day tour is a big day, with Gargantua Cave being the ultimate destination. We will gain approximately 1000m in elevation to reach Gargantua’s upper entrances, then rappel 5 times through the cave and hike through monster chambers and passages before exiting the lower exit from behind a waterfall! If time permits we will visit a few other small caves on the hike back to the car. Expect a 12-15 hour day!
The 2-day tour allows us a more relaxed schedule meaning more time to explore. Once we have established our camp in a beautiful alpine meadow we will spend the remainder of day 1 exploring Cleft Cave. Hike, scramble and crawl right through a mountain and emerge at Lofty Lookout! On day two we will do the Gargantua through-trip and then collect our belongings on the return hike back to civilization.
