Caving is surreal. One minute you are walking through a Yorkshire field in the sun and the next you are plunged into a strange, subterranean world.
Isn’t caving scary? Well it's not for everyone, but most of the time you can stand up and you soon loose any fears in the excitement of experiencing the new world around you. If you're up for a greater challenge you can crawl and squeeze through small spaces, but this is totally optional. You never know, you might even come back for more.
We have a cave for most just about everyone. If you want a taste but don't want to be underground for ages, then Easy caving is for you. Each section is short and soon arrives back in daylight before continuing onto the next section. Sections you don't fancy can be walked around - a chance to explore without being too committed.
Your guide will take you on a longer more challenging experience in a more extensive cave system. This gives more variations, longer routes and even that ultimate squeeze challenge. Climb up or down between passages and possibly get to scramble down a waterfall. Great adrenaline rush with the added opportunity to see some amazing new sights.
You must have recently been caving with us before doing this one!
Once you abseil into the entrance, the only way out is to get to the other end, so this is not the place to decide you don’t feel happy underground! The session will begin with a practice abseil before heading to the cave area.

In some ways Ghyll Scrambling is very similar to Caving, it involves scrambling over rocky streams and navigating craggy features.
If the weather is good why not consider Ghyll Scrambling rather than Caving and take in the stunning views of the Langdale Valley.
