When you go down to Wookey Hole Caves it’s going to be a non-stop adventure workout like no other! You’ll be climbing crawling abseiling and walking your way around amazing underground caverns and caves on these half day cave adventure experiences!
Situated on the edge of the Mendip Hills Wookey Hole is a series of limestone caves that have fascinated us humans for many thousands of years. With the help of expert guides these experiences give you the chance to explore and conquer the caverns. It’s time to test your mettle on a Wookey Hole cave adventure.
So much more than just caving (or pot-holing as it is also known); this experience offers a truly unique and diverse sequence of activities to keep you moving and on your toes! There’s even a little boat ride over the River Axe to transfer you to some of the climbing you’ll be doing through crystal-lined passages. Via Ferrata is European-style climbing at its best and there’s plenty of it underground at Wild Wookey! Getting down is a case of abseiling which is also great fun.
As you work your way through the caverns various challenges will present themselves. You might find yourself on your hands and knees crawling through low openings or doing a bit of scrambling to get to the next chamber. Your instructor will be there to show you the way encourage you and ensure your safety at all times.

But fear not you won’t be doing any swimming diving or wading – there’s no immersion involved on these adventure outings so you won’t be getting wet.
