Caving or Via ferrata?

Are you physically fit with a sense of curiosity? Do you fancy learning something new and finding out about silver mines and how they work?

Then caving is the thing for you!
Caving is a form of underground exploration and classed as a sport. You will be safely roped up and supervised by a passionate state-qualified caving guide!

Are you physically fit, independent-minded, and like climbing?

Then the Via ferrata is the thing for you!
The Via ferrata is a cross between hiking and climbing. You will follow a course that is specially designed for this activity (with cables, ladders, and ramps). You will be fairly independent as you make your away long the lifeline, which can be used with self-belay equipment.
