For absolute beginners, this level provides basic knowledge of caving and environmental preservation in this unique environment. Following the theoretical lesson, we practice caving techniques, like moving through caves both horizontally and vertically.
The duration of this activity is 2 to 3 hours. We visit three cavities, which are holes or hollow areas and are smaller than a cave. Unlike the other two levels, this exploration does not involve the use of ropes.
Although it is best if you have experience before joining this level, beginners are also welcome. We will include some training outside before entering the cave.
The duration of this activity is between 3 and 5 hours, depending on your experience and which cave we visit. Level of difficulty also depends and can be between low to medium. This exploration includes the use of ropes for rappelling and climbing.
This level requires previous experience comparable to what we do at Level 2 - speleology certification required
The duration of this activity is about 8 hours, depending on which cave we visit. Level of difficulty also depends and is between medium to high. We descend into the cave along large walls using ropes, and exit the cave at the end using the rope and various climbing techniques.
For this level especially, we recommend bringing snacks, food, and water.
