£79.00 per person.
Itinerary
Meet at 10:00 am in the main car park in Hope. There are a few cafes and shops nearby as well as public toilets. Map
After a short introduction and weather check, we'll head to the cave to get underground.
Lunch - Possibly on the surface, probably underground.
We aim to have you done for about 3:00pm. Advanced vertical caving courses do not have exact finish times as this will vary from team to team. Trips can take longer with some groups or small teams may travel faster.
Experience
No experience required but some caving background may be useful. Our Peak District Caving Day course is a good introduction to being underground if you’re not sure about the Advanced Course yet. Bring the desire to push your own boundaries and experience something new. Caving is a moderate to high physical activity, if unsure please contact us to discuss suitability.
You will be required to crawl at times.
You may walk through thigh deep water but will never need to swim or be submerged.
Expect to be in a cold, wet environment. Don’t forget to bring a change of clothes!
Included / Excluded
Included:
Safety equipment & caving gear
Friendly instructor

Please bring your own food and drink packed appropriately, transport and car parking fees, change of clothes and towel.
We usually visit a single cave for the whole day but rarely might need to visit 2 different ones. If we move location you’ll need a towel or bin bag to sit on whilst we drive to the new site to keep your car clean and dry.
Essential Information
Weather and ground conditions as well as group preferences can effect the choice of caves visited on the day. We may visit disused mines.
Restrictions
Over 18’s only without first speaking to us.
Join Peak Instruction on an adventure deep into the world beneath your feet. Advanced caving days are vertical trips into caves or mines. You’ll be heading down ropes before escaping back to the surface up wire ladders and steep climbs.

No previous experience is needed but vertical caving (a.k.a. Potholing) can be highly physical and is not for the unfit, very over weight or pregnant. A certain amount of crawling is part of the experience.
Advanced caving days will normally involve a trip into a system with a number of vertical sections. Depending on which cave or mine we visit, you may come across abseils, waterfalls, scrambles, climbs and caver’s wire ladders. Cavers may choose to pit themselves against physical challenges like squeezes, stream passages, very wet or muddy areas and long crawls.
You will need to bring warm clothes and a change for after, as well as any food or drink you require. If underground for lunch we will supply waterproof containers and bags for food. You will also likely need some change for car parking.

Ignore the stereotype of scary, tight, dangerous caving presented by the media and find out for yourself what it is really like down there. You’ll be amazed at the environment beneath your feet.
