We take small tours of 2 - 8 people so you have the ability to move slowly through the caves to enjoy, explore and take in the surroundings, including our three mesmerising glow worm displays.

We supply all the clothing and equipment so just bring a small camera and you will be ready to go.

Please note: This tour is not suitable for elderly or anyone with mobility difficulties as it involves climbing over boulders, walking up hills and wading through streams with rocks underfoot. A reasonable level of fitness is required.

Allow 3 hours for the tour. Tours leave several times a day, so just give us a call.
