Caving Courses in The Peak District
Peak District Caving offers an exciting opportunity to explore what lies beneath your feet. We have developed an excellent reputation for all of our caving courses in the Peak District. We use the best instructors who know all of the cave systems inside out so that we can offer you the best day possible regardless of what the weather throws at us.
Our Caving days for groups will offer you an amazing underground experience and no you don’t have to squeeze through tight holes if you don’t want too! Our staff can take you abseiling beside waterfalls or lower you down mined entrance shafts into cave systems below. They can chat about the cave formation and travel back in time to when the caves were just beginning. We can look at fossils and stalactites or stalagmites and take you to places where very few people have been.
We can adjust the level of challenge to suit and also have more gentle options for those that would like an introduction to this underground world. For the gentler approach to caving we can explore more horizontal cave systems or we could even explore some of the old lead mines that Derbyshire is famous for. These are full of history and stories to tell along with plenty of scope for adventure.
With smaller groups we can offer more adventurous trips depending on how daring you want to be. These trips have more vertical elements to them and involve some abseiling and climbing wire ladders. For these a reasonable level of fitness is required and a good attitude towards heights.
We provide you with caving suits, welly boots, gloves, helmets, lights and all other technical equipment. You will need to bring warm clothing to wear underneath our caving suits. This activity can be wet so a change of clothes is advised depending on the level of challenge.
