Beyond the Beaten Path: Semi-Deep Caving
Follow your curiosity further and take this simple caving adventure beyond the barriers. Perfect for younger groups or those who want the adventure to continue, but aren’t ready yet for anything too challenging; the semi-deep caving experience lets you crawl, slither and clamber into areas visitors wouldn’t normally experience.
Gear up with helmets and lamps and get a little dirty; starting on the public tour, go off route with one of our excellent guides to discover areas last seen by miners centuries ago.
A perfect experience for adventure trips, birthdays, or just those with a curious nature. A memorable trip. Allow 2 hours.
Dare to gol Deeper: Deep level caving
Go deep under the Forest, visiting this labyrinth of over 250 acres of passageways and caverns.
Walk, crawl, slither and clamber your way down to 200ft (62m) underground; you will be caving through natural and mined features. Get geared up and our experienced guide leads you on a more serious caving adventure, with routes the guide adapts to suit a wide variety of skills, thrills, occasions and fun.
We supply helmets, lamps, overalls, wellies and any other safety equipment required, plus of course we provide your mine leader, who after discussion with your group, chooses a route to suit the groups ability and interests. Allow 3 hours.
Small groups are led through the cave by experienced and knowledgeable guides.
