Summary: Take your first steps underground on a Peak District Caving Experience based from Alpkit, Hathersage.
Description: During the day you'll visit up to 2 local caves, learn about their creation over 300 million years, discover beautiful formations and fossils as well as evidence of mining dating back centuries. The caves we visit are mostly walking sized with some sections of stooping or hands-and-knees crawling. Before setting out you'll be kitted out with over suit, wellies, kneepads, helmet and lamp and we'll make a plan to be safe underground, including taking a detailed look at the weather.
Start Time: 09:30am
Finish Time: 16:00pm
Equipment: Synthetic clothing that will keep you warm when wet will be needed to wear under the caving oversuit that we provide. A change of clothes and a towel are also a good idea.
Min Age: From age 13+. Under 16's must be accompanied by parent or legal guardian.
Note: You may need to pay a cave trespass fee of between £2 and £4 depending on which cave system you go to
