We will provide the essentials: Caving helmet, caving light, gloves and caving oversuit. All you need to bring is an old set of warm clothes (we suggest you wear layers with no jeans or short sleeved tops) that you don’t mind getting muddy or damp. The temperature in the cave is 9 degrees. These will be worn under your caving suit. Wellingtons are also required (with warm socks 2 pairs), please ensure these are a good fitting.
It is advisable to bring a towel and change of clothes to change back into after your trip.
This is an adult only event suitable for persons 18 years +.
The Adventure Caving trip is aimed for those wishing to “give caving a go”, so no previous caving experience is required. However, the trip requires walking, stooping and crawling. You must be able to undertake approximately 2 hours of moderate physical activity and be willing to complete a confidential medical/emergency contact form on registration disclosing any illnesses/conditions/medications for your Cave Instructors awareness.
