Book Now - Plughole (Introductory Adventure Caving Experience)

This is a genuine adventure experience. No experience is necessary. Our guides are all highly qualified, mentoring you all the way.

The 'Elder Cave' is perfect for first time cavers! 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 '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, you will swagger confidently when you pass other visitors!

Later, you can proudly show friends your Certificate of Achievement and free photos of your trip.

The 'Plughole Adventure Tour' is a great introduction to caving. You should complete it before you attempt our other adventure caving tours, The Aladdin Adventure or The Mammoth Adventure Expedition.

Average Duration: 2 hours
