Christmas Competition that starts right now

This is a little free and easy competition to enter. I guess to be absolutely correct it is actually a draw as you do not even have to answer any questions. What more could you ask!

Early in 2015 we will be relaunching our newsletter and to encourage you to sign up we are running a free competition. The newsletter will be not be coming out every week so we will not be bombarding you with emails. It will just be for telling you what we are up to and any other interesting events or news that you might be interested in.

If you sign up to our mailing list before midnight on 31st December you could be the lucky winner of a guided walk in the Three Peaks area, a day of navigation skills training or an introductory or intermediate caving trip. The prize will be for you and up to 3 friends and you pick which prize you would like.

10 other people will be given a one off 10% discount voucher to use on any of our activities.

Holiday Evening Caving Trips have started for 2014

For several years now we have been running Introductory Caving Trips suitable for individuals, couples and small groups during the holiday periods from February until October half term. (Dates at the end of the blog)

The caves are not tight and you can walk in many sections. There are some stooping and crawling sections and even a few optional squeezes if you would like but they are not compulsory if you are worried about that. There are some deep pools to get around, waterfalls and small climbs but nothing that an averagely fit person with a sense of adventure will not be able to do. It’s a great chance to do something a bit different with some of your family or friends in an area famous for its caves.

These Caving Trips start at 5.00 pm and finish at approximately 8.00 pm so not too late for the younger ones and time to go for a bar snack locally afterwards if you want.

Your local, qualified and very experienced instructor will meet you at the parking place nearest the cave just above Horton-in-Ribblesdale and directions to the site will be given on booking.

Everyone will change into the caving kit at the road head and walk a short distance to the cave before going underground.

We supply – Caving oversuits, helmets, lights, belts, wellies, and all safety gear. We will supply you with a simple kit list on booking but it will not include the need for any specialist clothes. You will  need a full change of clothes for afterwards though as you will be getting a bit wet.

The minimum age is 8 years old. As we are an AALA  licensed provider we can take children under 18 without a parent or legal guardian being with us. We just need their written consent or verbal if you are bringing your own child to the caving venue. No company that charges you can take under 18s on their own without having this license as it is a legal requirement to ensure their safety. 

The price is £25.00 per person. You can book and pay online or use our contact page to email or phone us.

2014 DATES Mon  14th April  ~  Mon  21st April ~ Mon 5th May ~ Sun 25th May ~ Mon  26th May ~ Mon  21st July ~ Mon  28th July ~ Mon 4th Aug ~ Mon 11th Aug ~ Mon 18th Aug ~ Mon 25th Aug ~ Mon 1st Sept ~ Mon 8th Sept ~ Mon 20th Oct ~ Mon 27th Oct.

MORE HOLIDAY EVENING CAVING EXPERIENCES

 

Introductory and Intermediate Holiday Evening Caving Sessions.

You may have seen us taking Ade Edmondson caving on ITV’s The Dales on Monday night and would like to try caving too. If you are on holiday in the Three Peaks area of the Yorkshire Dales during any of the holidays or you or someone you know who lives locally has wanted to try caving then this is the trip for you.
You can book one of our early evening caving sessions that we run during the holidays.  The next one is Monday 7th May 2012. These trips are particularly aimed at families where perhaps only some want to give it a go. The minimum age is 8 years old. The caving trips are also open for couples and individuals.
Climbing down to Dr Bannisters
If you have been before and would like to visit another cave with some vertical sections then in the summer holidays we will be running theses intermediate sessions on Tuesday evenings.
Each Introductory or Intermediate Caving Experience costs £25.00 per person for a 3 hours with a qualified and experienced instructor and includes a caving oversuit, wellies, helmet, belt and light. They start at 5.00 pm and finish by around 8.00 pm
If you have younger children or a bigger family or group we would suggest you book a session for just you.
These trips cost from £160.00 for a group of up to 6 people which is less than £27.00 per person with all kit listed above plus fleece undersuits and a CD of photos of your adventure. The trip can then be geared towards your group and at a time and date suitable for you.
