Yorkshire Dales Guides
Settle, North Yorkshire
The Yorkshire Dales is one of the best places in the country to go caving and potholing, so it makes sense to go with a trusted company with a long history in the sport.
Yorkshire Dales guides have been delivering caving trips for 24 years, so you can feel safe in the knowledge that when these guys take you into some of the county’s damp, dark caves and potholes that you are in good hands.
The trips allow you to enter a fascinating world below your feet with wondrous underground passages, while being challenged by climbs, water crossings and abseils.
Beginner trips take place in both the morning and evening with instructors who are local, qualified and experienced cavers.
More advanced days show people how to set up their kit according to their own personal preference and a range of different rigging techniques, as well as some self-rescue techniques.
Advanced days allow those who’ve mastered the sport to attempt some of Yorkshire’s most challenging caving and potholing experiences.
For those who are total novices, there’s also an Introduction to Vertical Caving course that takes place in the company’s Activity Barn that allows people to get used to some of the techniques that will be used later on when they attempt the real thing.
Yorkshire Dales Guides owner Dave Gallivan has lived and worked in the Yorkshire Dales for 35 years and has extensive knowledge of local cave systems.
Team building events for leisure and corporate groups are also catered for.
