What to Expect

Take a step into the dark, secret and mysterious world of horizontal caves and ancient mines. This beginner caving course is aimed at you who have not been caving before. We venture in and out of a couple of cave systems on this day to get a feel for the mysterious underground world. An ideal introduction for people wishing their first steps underground to be fun carefully organized, informative and conducted by highly experienced nationally qualified instructors.

Learn about the cave, its geology and the 300 million years it took to create it. Pick up tips on how to move underground efficiently, maybe try your hand at wet sections, muddy bits or squeezes and we promise you won´t get stuck. You can see underground rivers and waterfalls, fascinating pieces of geology, cave decorations or historical sites of past times and ancient techniques.

A wonderful environment that can be made as challenging as you wish. A full day of exploration, adventure and understanding. On all ascents and descents, you will have a safety line attached to you, helping you up and keeping you safe. With a motivated team you can reach the deepest parts of the Peak District. A day you will remember forever.
