After a short walk up to the entrance with stunning views on all sides, we enter the labyrinth of over fifty miles of tunnel and over a thousand spectacular caverns carved by the Victorians though the very heart of a mountain.

The going gets tough quickly, and it stays tough. Our route takes us over many lofty traverses - balancing on old beams or pipes over breathtaking voids of darkness. We cross ancient timber bridges and abseil off hideous drops to sink deeper and deeper under the earth.

Ultimately we reach the very bottom accessible floor of the mine - 1,300 feet under the mountain. It is here that we are at the very deepest point that can be reached in Snowdonia. Minimum Age: 18 years
