The Underground Explorer is our entry-level mine trip. We visit an ancient, abandoned Cornish tin mine, tucked away in an idyllic location on a Cornish cliffside. We get to explore a few levels of this authentic mine, left as it was when abandoned by the miners long ago. The trip is largely an easy walk-in, walk-out trip, with some optional extras, such as some short crawls to reach more workings. There is even the option to try a small abseil to give you a flavour of what more advanced acting techniques are all about. Unlike a show mine, this is authentic exploration, using caving equipment, and the only sources of light are the head torches we attache to our helmets. As well as giving you a good dose of adventure, we also share the history of Cornish mining, and we feel the only way to truly appreciate this huge part of Cornwall's heritage is to see it for yourself, up close and personal.
This trip does include confined spaces and a reasonable level of fitness is required. If you are not sure if this trip is for you, please get in touch so we can have a chat. For those looking for the ultimate underground experience in Cornwall, then please see our Underground Adventurer.
