Journey into an amazing underworld landscape often unseen by most of the UK population. Caving is an, exciting and rewarding activity which allows you visit a unique environment and take away the most stunning memories.
In these vast cave systems, you’ll see labyrinths of winding passageways, delicate cave formations, and chambers all formed by nature itself. You’re going to be taken back in time over 330 million years, as you explore such an exciting and impressive subterranean world.
Do not get put off by the thought of tight spaces, flooding and getting really cold and wet as this is not the case. Our sessions are much more about having a great experience without being scared.
We take our work seriously and are all passionate and active cave explorers and by holding the highest qualification available within the UK. Our guides and instructors are there or look after you and give you a fun and rewarding experience. Even in winter the temperature underground never drops below 8 degrees.
England and Wales have some of the best caving systems in the world with the premier location of the Yorkshire Dales being a firm favourite. Caving is my other main passion alongside the mountains and climbing and I always get excited when leading groups underground, it’s such a great and satisfying activity.
Our skill-based courses allow you to progress under your own steam and are run by myself or by one of my associate’s instructors. We both hold the highest qualification available Cave Instructors Certificate ( CIC ) and have extensive experience both personally and professionally spanning decades of caving in the UK and overseas. We remain very active cavers, caving club members and I am also a member of North Wales Cave Rescue Team.
Cave or Pothole ? What is the difference ?
They are both the same environments, it’s just that in Yorkshire nature has created more caves with more vertical sections. These vertical sections are often round in their formation, hence the word Pothole.
This means potholing has more going down and climbing back up than caves.
