Come along and delve off the beaten track to explore “Real” caving deep inside the Marble Arch Caves System through, “wild” caves beyond the well-lit caverns of the showcave. Your adventure will involve you meandering wild cave passages, climbing though boulder chambers and squeezing though our famous flyover to emerge into the Marble Arch Showcave, before returning to the boulder chambers on your way out muddy, but proud!
A certificate of achievement is awarded to everyone who successfully completes the expedition, after you have handed in your kit and washed your face and hands! So why not come along and join Geopark staff and find out more about this fascinating environment under our feet.
