Adventure highlights

Our Peak District Caving intermediate course is aimed at people who may have caved before or who have a good level of fitness and want a more challenging experience. This course will involve some vertical aspects and require you to abseil and climb within the cave system. First, we meet and greet you and then explain what the day will involve. This will usually be an extended caving trip in one cave system. As we explore the cave we can look at the formations and how caves developed over the millennia. You can expect to get wet so come prepared although we aim to stay as dry as possible for as long as possible! Our caving instructors will look after your safety and will give you the option to do some of the challenges on offer. We bring ropes and ladders with us for the more challenging and exciting bits. You will also bring some food and drinks with you so we can have our lunch deep beneath the Peak District. This course will give you a good insight into caving and the underground world beneath your feet. Progression from this is onto our SRT caving courses. This is a great activity and opportunity to try this in the safest way possible by using a well established company that has been operating in the Peak District for 11 years. Please note we have done all we can to ensure we abide by the governments Covid-19 health and safety guidelines, but let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
