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!

Join Peak Instruction on a trip back in time into the dark, industrial past. Experience a journey through history and have a physical adventure on the way.

No previous experience is needed and this can be enjoyed by all ages. The caving can be quite physical but normal fitness levels will be fine. A certain amount of crawling is part and parcel 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. See our full kit list list PDF below.

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.
