Great adventure, I feel privileged that our family got to experience this. You will need to be in decent physical shape as there is a strenuous hike up to the cave and back down. Once inside, you will shimmy, crawl, crab, slither and use your...More
Great guide, very informative briefing, equipment provided even energy bars (yummy). This is quite a strenuous activity and such great fun with a sense of achievement and exhilaration as you squeeze through gaps (optional) and haul yourself up and down rocks. Couldn’t recommend it enough...More

Hi Claudia, thank you for the question. Our cave tours are available year-round thanks to the constant temperature inside the cave. There is a 30-40 minute hike to access the cave so it is important to dress appropriately for the weather while on the hike, but once inside the cave the temperature is a consistent 5 degrees Celsius. The cave tours are a great option when the weather is too cold to do other outdoor activities and we are able to do evening tours so you can make the most of your daylight hours.
We do offer an interpretive hike called the Diacovery Tour that only goes to the cave entrance and this tour is only available May - October.
If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to contact us.

At 220lb I managed to make it everywhere within the cave system that our guide took us. Yes some of the squeezes were tight, but I made it through. We were on the short tour (2 hours in cave) and there were 2 optional squeezes. The rest of the cave was not difficult to get through as the passages are larger.
