Course Overview: 

Our Try Caving courses in the Peak District will give you the opportunity to explore several cave systems over a 2 day period. It starts with a trip into an easier cave system to introduce you to this underground world.  

We will give you the chance to take on bigger challenges as the course develops but most of the challenges are optional and there are alternatives. This may involve using ropes to get down into the cave or wire ladder climbs to get back out. If you look at the videos on our caving page it will give you an idea of what to expect.

Numbers are limited to 5 to ensure that you all get to do as much as possible over the 2 days. If you need help finding accommodation please let us know.

To find out more or if you have any questions please call us on 01629 814557. If no one answers please leave a message and we will get back to you asap. Alternatively you can complete our enquiry form.
