A bit about us!

With a wealth of caving experience, Mike has descended into the world's largest cave and also the 2nd deepest cave. In additional to exploratory caving projects in Europe, Asia and Mexico, Mike has done a huge amount of caving in the Yorkshire Dales.
Vastly experienced in a wide range outdoor activities, Paul was the first person to traverse all 4000m high mountains in Switzerland and the first to complete the World's deepest cave diving through trip - over 1,200m beneath the mountains.
Between us, the Yorkshire Dales Guides team have over 90 years of experience in outdoor pursuits and have been privileged enough to be the first human beings to lay our footprints in the sand of some incredible places. We can help you get there too!
