Outdoor Activities: Caving & Mining
Learn about another world just below our feet. Explore caverns that have been opened up by water creeping through cracks in the rock over thousands of years; sights that have only been glimpsed by a privileged few. Or walk though ancient mines and experience the mining history.
We have several caves and mines in North Wales suitable for great caving and mining activities. We also have many more venues in South Wales that offer some more challenging trips. For those who are interested in taking up the sport, we are able to offer introduction training courses.
Information & Guidelines On Caving & Mine Adventure Activities
We can provide caving and mining to those who have a reasonable level of fitness. Caving and mining involves a reasonable high level of physical activity. It may involve moving through small areas of cave or mine and climbing or abseiling underground, but be assured, the rewards are worth it.
Caving and mining is weather dependent. In the case of adverse weather conditions, an alternative will be offered. Where appropriate, an alternative date may be offered.
Full or half day caving and mining sessions are available. Caving and mining sessions run 9:00am – 1:00pm and 2:00pm – 5:00pm. Other timings available on request.
