Private Activity Courses

Adventure built around you

You can book a private activity course or 1:1 session with one of our highly experienced staff. If you choose this option, then you have more flexibility in what you can do and when you want to do it. The day and your activities can be built around you and what you want to get from them. Also, our 1:2 option is great value and works well for surprise gifts. It can also work out better than joining one of our open courses as you only pay a few pounds more for a bespoke day with a guide. You can see some photos and videos on our social media accounts on Facebook or Instagram.

We cater for a lot of 1:1 sessions and the feedback is always good. We are happy to chat any options through with you and help give you the best outdoor activity day possible.

Derbyshire caving course in a cave canyon

Caving Intermediate Course

Caving Courses in the Peak District

This caving course is based in the Derbyshire Peak District. Our intermediate caving trips generally take place in more challenging and demanding systems. They will have horizontal and vertical cave passages for you to explore. You could be climbing up ladder sections, abseiling beside underground waterfalls, crawling through watery passages or passing through smaller sections. There are also plenty of other challenges for smaller group members, but don't worry as these are all optional. If you wanted to see some videos then you can pop across to our  You Tube or Facebook pages.

In the Peak District there are vast limestone areas which are rich with minerals found in old lead mines and plenty of cave systems to explore. Many of these cave systems lie in the Castleton / Hope Valley catchment area which is in the northern part of the National Park. However you can find some lead mines to explore in some of the southern areas so we can offer you the best trip to fit in with your accommodation.

We only use fully qualified cave instructors who are available in our area and know every cave. This ensures that you will have the best caving experience possible and hopefully wanting to come back for more.
