No Experience Necessary!
The ever popular 'Plughole Adventure' tour is 2 exciting hours, including an abseil (weather permitting) and a series of climbs, squeezes and crawls. After donning overalls, harness, helmet and headlamp, you receive a safety briefing, to prepare you for your thrilling journey.
You begin with a challenging 9-metre abseil down a sinkhole into the hidden world of the Elder Cave. No abseiling experience is necessary. Our guides are all highly qualified, mentoring you all the way. If weather is not suitable for abseiling, we take you a different way, seeing more of the cave, and you will still have a great time!
The Elder Cave is perfect for first time cavers! The abseil is followed by a spacious chamber and then The Windows a tight, short squeeze. As your confidence grows, the squeezes get longer. Look carefully, and you'll see some fine crystal, but this tour is not about cave decorations.It is an adventure experience!
Move on through the Crystal Chamber and take time for a breather in The Chapel. The Armchair Squeeze leads you into the fun of the Rockpile, then the aptly named the Letterbox Squeeze. This adventure is called The Plughole for good reason. The S-Bend is the way out of the cave! Dirty, you emerge into the Imperial Cave. On the way out, remember to swagger boldly when you pass other visitors!
Later, you can proudly show friends your Certificate of Achievement and free photos of your trip, which you can download. (Please note that we do not photograph children under age 18, and we can't guarantee photos of adults.)
