Introducing caving and Cave climbing :
Caving consists of descending into a cave and exploring the beauties of this underground world, using different progression techniques ranging from walking to crawling and from abseiling to rope climbing... All of this in a mineral, sometimes aquatic, exceptional and wild environment. It is necessary in be in good physical condition, in order to enjoy the activity throughout. Please note that it is not always easy to exit a cave quickly and on demand!
Prepare your caving activity:
The numerous caves in the region allow us to offer a wide range of outings for all levels: from discovery to more technical exploration, for sporty friends as well as for families, including with young children. Do not hesitate to contact us : together we can choose a cave adapted to your expectations. We can also discuss your trip in more detail.
We provide all the individual technical equipment: caving suit, boots, gloves, kneepads (for the long routes), harness equipped for rope progression and helmet with lighting. The instructor will also have all the necessary collective equipment, such as the rope for abseiling and ascents. Particular attention is paid to the quality of the equipment provided.
You will bring your own sports outfit to wear underneath the wetsuit: soft trousers (jumpsuit or fleece tights), a t-shirt, a jumper or a light fleece. Note that the caves are always cold, about 8 degrees all year round! Also bring a snack and at least 1 litre of water. For day outings, bring a picnic. Don’t worry, we will go through all ou need to bring with you beforehand.
Our quality commitment:
We guarantee a small group size, with a maximum of 8 participants per instructor, and even less on some very technical routes. This guarantees greater safety, optimised attention to each person and improved connection within the group.
The professionals who accompany you in your caving activity are all holders of a special certificate for this activity (State Certificate or Diploma). They have a sports instructor's card as well as an up to date civil liability insurance. CORDEO also covers all the participants in Individual Accident, without additional cost.
