Adventures exploring underground

Being deep underground is a unique experience. The peace, beauty and darkness of the caves envelop you, and your small group in the bubble of light given off by your head torch.

Caving is both humbling and exciting: a natural wonderland where every formation out-ages your whole known family tree. 

Caves have each formed with their own unique character and challenges which make it a fantastic sport when adapted at the right level for our adventurous customers. From entering via a waterfall using a rope to wheeling in a wheelchair through large water-worn passageways - there are options aplenty.

We run caving days and weekend multi-cave trips.

 If your party benefits from very exact timings and a visual time table - no problem let us know

If your party needs a quiet and calm environment without strangers - let us know 

Icon Mobility Needs

Mobility aid users 

We have a range of venues whereby a wheelchair can access some of the caves - and the entrance to others

Caving generally has an undulating floor but plenty to lean on for support (passage walls). Some caves involve crawling. 

Icon Visual Needs

Visual impairments

With passage walls to guide you, caving makes an excellent experience for those with visual impairments

For all users - sighted or otherwise  -caving is a tactile experience 

Most caves are accessed via easy tracks

Caving, even at its hardest - working with ropes and ladders - is accessible to those with visual impairments 

Icon Auditory Needs

Auditory Impairment 

We can include those with audio impairments via high quality and needs aware instructors.

By arrangement, we can often source an assistant instructor fluent in BSL. 

We possess a bank of 2-way radios that we utilise to help those with reduced hearing to understand instructions and communicate. These can output directly to earpieces or T-loop compatible hearing aids

Try Cave 

For those a bit nervous

For many, the thought of caving is a little daunting, yet still appealing. The ‘try cave’ day takes this into account starting with the easiest and most accessible cave we know with a lovely underground waterfall to visit.

On exit and following a bite to eat we visit another cave with a range of challenges to try. A great low-pressure day of guaranteed caving.

For those nervous about their abilities, the try cave day is a great option to test out our inclusivity strategies.

Cave Day

Straight into some great caves

Cave day is for those happy to get straight underground and into challenges.

Caves vary by weather and abilities but in general, we cave where there are obstacles to overcome throughout: climbing and descending or squeezing and crawling generally without the need for specialist equipment but occasionally ropes are used on short sections to help keep people safe.

Previous experience is not needed and nothing is too hard or scary but ‘a can do’ confident attitude is essential.

Ropes and Ladders (R&L)

Caving in more challenging terrain

Cave R&L is for people that have tried the kind of things we offer on our cave day and want more. Caving is quite addictive so cave R&L is the next stage. In Cave R&L we start using ropes and special roll-up ladders to allow areas to be accessed that would not be physically possible without them. Deeper drops and traverses with sheer drops are features of many of the R&L-style caves we visit.

Previous horizontal caving experience is needed - you must already know how you will cope in a cave where exiting is not a readily available option. The first morning of ropes and ladder courses starts above ground with rope training followed by an afternoon underground and a second consecutive day of pure caving on our weekend courses.

Cave Weekends

Make a weekend of it

During the weekend we run either a cave day followed by a cave R&L day or two Cave R&L days for those who have already caved with us. You get to mix with a range of experience levels and come away with great friends and stories.
