The 7km trek through Paradise Cave is a unique way to experience this spectacular cave. This tour takes you through the stunningly lit tourist section of the cave to the end of the boardwalk, where your guide will open the gate for you to step down on to the cave floor and begin your caving adventure.
Explore the spectacular cave formations in the darkness with just the light of your head torch, perhaps see the endemic eyeless cave fish, and marvel at the wonders of this huge passage that is 100m wide and 150m high in sections.
You will get to swim through a section of the cave (or take a boat if you can’t swim) before you explore more of this underground wonder and emerge in to the light of the doline chamber. You will enjoy lunch underground, and if you are lucky be awed by the sunbeams that penetrate the cave on a sunny day.
