Prepare to be amazed with caving, or spelunking for our American friends! Hidden in the caves beneath your feet there are miles of rifts, tunnels and chambers waiting to be discovered. There are many amazing sights to be encountered as you climb, scramble and slide around Nidderdale and the rest of the Yorkshire Dales. Here at How Stean Gorge we are lucky enough to have some of the most exciting, beautiful caves in the UK, and our our fantastic, trained instructors are ready to take you exploring through them.
So many people will turn up excited by the prospect of exploring, but asking what is caving? The answer is simple enough – it’s the recreational exploring of underground caves. However, the experience is something you will never forget, there is something truly unique and exciting about traversing a natural wonder like this.
Walk, climb, abseil or crawl – but whatever you do, don’t expect to keep clean! During a caving adventure you could find yourself wading through water, climbing underground waterfalls and sliding through mud. If you’re looking for something a bit different and don’t mind getting dirty then this is for you.
There are numerous options and routes with varied difficulty, so if small spaces aren’t your thing no need to worry – we can explore a more open route. We are happy to tailor your caving experience to suit you and make sure that this is an adventure you won’t forget!
