“Castleguard. For a caver, the name invokes imagination and emotion. As Canada’s longest cave, it has enchanted expedition cavers from around the world who have contributed to its exploration over the last 50 years. A few unexplored leads still beckon, and armed with clear scientific and exploration objectives, a research permit from Parks Canada grants access for experienced teams.”
Check out the 2020 Castleguard Cave Expedition, one of three cover stories in the ACC Gazette’s upcoming Spring 2021 issue, for an intense (and hilarious) look inside the caves beneath the Columbia Icefield in Banff National Park.
