Explore Real Cave Systems in the Wye Valley
The natural area around Symonds Yat and the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire are the perfect place to go Caving.
Walk, crawl and sometimes shuffle through miles of passageways into vast open caverns with stalactites and stalagmites .
Many Species of Bats call the Caves home and the only way to get a close up look is to go caving!
All of our caving instructors are Qualified Cave leaders and are site specific trained on the surrounding caves.
A 3 hour session starts from our centre and entails a short walk to the start of the caves, you are given a boiler suit, helmet and light and with a brief explanation of where you are going, you then set off into the caves being lead by the instructor.
Suitable for novices and experienced alike. We can choose a cave system that is suitable for your requirements.
Caving is great fun for all persons aged 8 and upwards.
