Caves and Caverns
Erosion of the continuous band of limestone that runs down from Quatsino has produced thousands of caves on northern Vancouver Island. The Artlish Caves Provincial Park, located northwest of Zeballos, is a concentration of river karst features unique in Western Canada. In terms of flow volume and passage dimensions, the Artilish River cave system is currently the largest active river cave system known in Canada.
Little Hustan Cave Regional Park can be easily accessed just off the road into Zeballos.
Dozens of “undiscovered” caves, sink holes, and disappearing streams in the area await those who like to explore.
There are many beautiful parks that surround the Zeballos and the north island coast. To find out more about some of these parks, visit the links below.
