About the experience

Are you ready to embark on a thrilling underground adventure? Look no further than caving in the Brecon Beacons! Led by expert instructors, these half-day and full-day caving experiences will take you on a journey through a labyrinth of chambers, coves and pools, showcasing Mother Nature at her finest. You don't need any fancy gadgets to enjoy this true adventure sport - just a wetsuit, helmet and head torch. However, it's crucial to go with experienced and qualified guides who will ensure your safety and guide you through the cave system every step of the way. Once you reach Porth-yr-Ogof, you'll discover a warren of underground passageways in an idyllic location. With one of the main entrances being 15m wide and nearly 5m high, access is super easy. Inside, you'll witness breathtaking colours and textures of naturally occurring features, from the shiny grey of the stone to the dark blue of the cold water pools. Your guides will lead you along passages and creeks, tackling natural obstacles and features as you go. Brace yourself for the ‘washing machine', marvel at the incredible underground caverns and alcoves, and be prepared to crawl on your hands and knees at some point! Caving in the Brecon Beacons is not for the faint-hearted, but it's perfect for those seeking an adrenaline rush. Your guides will ensure that you are well taken care of and encouraged as you explore the Porth-yr-Ogof caves.
