Horizontal caving means you will not be suspended from a rope but will be going into mainly level systems. These trips are better if you are not fond of heights and can be less demanding. These trips still offer a lot of exploration and adventure and can get you to some special places to explore. Difficulty and challenge levels will be up to you and the difficulty of the trip and be adjusted once the trip has begun. Horizontal trips are often shorter in the Peaks as you would get to a point where ropes become involved and if you’ve not booked a vertical trip you would turn back at that point. The advantage of these slightly shorter trips is that we could fit in 3 different caves in a day. All of the caves we would use would be a short drive apart from each other. These trips are better if there is a group of you as we can more easily keep everyone moving and active.

What is Vertical Caving?
These trips can be more adventurous but at the same time more committing. By this we mean these trips are more involved, take more time and are not quick to get out of if you find the trip is too adventurous for you. Longer trips can also be more physically demanding, but perhaps this is what you are looking for? You won’t need any technical skills for a vertical trip but you should be prepared to abseil and climb ladders while on a safety rope. These trips are also a more expensive due to the extra equipment needed and higher level of qualified instructor. It’s probably not work booking a vertical caving day for a half day as vertical caving is more time consuming.
