Experience
No prior caving experience is required, just 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 individual suitability.
You will be required to crawl at times but will never need to ‘squeeze’ unless choosing to.
You may walk through thigh deep water but will never need to swim or be submerged.
We may climb ladders or scramble up short climbs or over boulders.
Expect to be in a cold, wet environment. Don’t forget to bring a change of clothes!

Safety equipment & caving gear

We may visit a single cave for the whole day or 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
Under 18's must be accompanied by a parent or a legal guardian.
14 years or older unless arranged directly with us in advance.
Weather and ground conditions as well as group ability can effect the choice of caves visited on the day and activities undertaken. We may visit disused mines.
Join Peak Instruction on a trip into the dark, magical places beneath the surface on a one of our regular caving days. You'll visit one or more of the Peak District's amazing caves or mines and explore deep into the 350 million year old landscape.

No previous experience is needed and this course can be enjoyed by anyone 14 years or above. The caving can be quite physical but normal fitness levels will be fine. A certain amount of crawling is part of the experience.
Caving days will normally involve a trip into a predominately horizontal system which does not require any previous experience of caving. Depending on which cave we visit, cavers may come across scrambles, short roped climbs or easy fixed 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.
