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?

Then caving is the thing for you!
For those age 8 or over. 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!
For those aged 12 or over and weighing at least 40 kg. 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).
