Caving experience:

We offer two sporty and at the same time enchanting offers of cave climbing in Saxon Switzerland. We explore the caves in Bohemian Switzerland for about 1.5 hours (beginners' tour) or 3-4 hours (advanced tour). Let's go back in time to the origin of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains (fossilised shell and fern imprints). When we reach daylight again, we will finish our tour with a jointly prepared barbecue (roast, vegetable pan, coffee, etc.). The romance of the fascinating view of the Elbe valley will not be neglected (not included in the price).

We go through a sporty and at the same time magical introduction to caving. Before we go about 1.5 h into the depths, our guide imparts a lot of know how of the use of climbing materials and equipment. This runs in conjunction with a small snack. After each participant has adjusted their helmet with headlamp to suit them, we finally head into the depths. In addition to the sporting demands of this tour (sometimes in a prone position), we let ourselves be transported back to the time of the origin of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains (fossilised shell and fern imprints). When we reach daylight again, we finish our tour with a jointly prepared late lunch (roast, vegetable pan, coffee, etc.).

This sporty, very demanding tour is intended as a continuation of the beginners' tour or for participants with experience in climbing and caving (more than tourist grotto climbing). After deepening or refreshing our caving know-how and checking the equipment of each participant, which again takes place in connection with a small snack, we move on to our 20 m abseil rock. Here each participant can put what they have learned into practice for the first time. Our experienced guide gives the necessary instructions and then all participants master the breathtaking 20 m deep abseil chimney. We now move around in the cave system for about 3 - 4 hours, using all the technical equipment (abseiling eights, ascender, etc.). Back in daylight, we have all earned our dinner (roast, steak, coffee, etc.), which is prepared together despite all our efforts. We are convinced that we are conveying an exhausting, but in its fascination most wonderful offer.
