On our intro to caving course we use expert cave instructors to look after you. They will guide, entertain, educate and ensure your enjoyment as you access some amazing places. Some of the best caves lie in the limestone hills surrounding the village of Castelton.
This course is aimed at people who maybe haven't tried caving before. Most challenges are optional so don't worry about small confined spaces. We can walk through passages into larger open caverns and give you options on what to do.
The more challenging option is our Intermediate Caving Course.
If you want an idea of what we do please take a look at some caving videos on our facebook page.
