caving in the Brecon Beacons

Fancy caving in the Brecon Beacons? Do you remember the thrill of going down a cave when you were young?  Why not take your children down one of the fantastic caves in Porth-yr-Ogof?

A great outdoor activity for beginners, families and groups who are up for a challenge.  You will explore the underground caves made of limestone that were formed over 250 million years ago.

Caving and Canyoning

I booked a trip for Caving and Canyoning with Gower Adventures in August 2017 for my wife, daughter (9 years) and myself. Before booking I had a few concerns, but Simon was very re-assuring and said the trip would be challenging and enjoyable and there was no pressure to do anything you felt uncomfortable with.

The day was great, we were kitted out in our caving suits, helmet and lights and went into the caves. It was great fun squeezing through tiny gaps in the rocks and very educational too with Simon giving regular explanations on the rock formations.


Loads of fun and adventure underground!

We booked a family day out caving near the Gower, and Simon took us to explore Porth Yr Ogof in the Neath valley. We have two kids aged 13 and 11, both are quite adventurous but had never been caving before. We all had an amazing experience with lots of fun and thrills.

Simon made sure the challenges gradually increased in difficulty and exhilaration, monitoring what the kids (and adults) are capable of, so the routes never get boring nor overwhelming. He is also very knowledgeable about the geology of the area and how the caves formed, so we all learnt something at the same time as having fun.

I would highly recommend Gower Adventures for a fantastic and fun day out
