Real Caving Adventures

At CI Adventures we specialise in real caving adventures where the experience of discovery, exploration, challenge and pure beauty will remain with you for life. Whether an absolute beginner or an experienced caver we have a whole range of caving experiences available. Our introductory caving trips are designed for people with no previous caving experience, while our technical adventures introduce height, equipment and progression.

We offer a range of caving trips to the Yorkshire Dales which can include the breathtaking Gaping Gill and the ever popular Long Churn system, amongst many others. Whether exploring fantastic limestone cave systems or disused mines, your trip should be an enjoyable and exciting experience, whilst keeping the safety of the group and you as an individual foremost.

Trips can be made as challenging and adventurous as you require, with half or full day trips available. CI Adventures can offer caving within a combined multi-activity day or as an individual, stand alone activity. All equipment is provided, including over suits.
