Caving - Spelunking
Caving or spelunking is a sub-terrain activity for people who are thrilled with the unknown and want to explore cave systems for either scientific purposes, sports or recreation. It is an activity that combines hiking, climbing, mountaineering and outdoor exploring. On it's extreme version it requires cave diving techniques in order to pass through passages covered with water inside a cave. More than 10.000 caves are found and explored all over the country, on mountains, on the coastline and sea, even on urban terrain. Many caves are considered part of the local history and culture, often accompanied with local myths and folk stories of the region they are found. In Greek mythology many caves are related with a birth of a god or residence of creatures like titans, giants and nymphs. Caving is an activity done in nature, requires certain techniques in order to enter and come out of a cave with safety and can be dangerous without special training and equipment. We arrange half day trips to local sights of interest in Attica taken all the safety requirements.
