What hides the underground world? The caves were the first human refuge, and from then until now they have been objects of curiosity for many of us. The rock formations, water courses, even the biodiversity of the depths, much more abundant than what is believed, have led various branches of science to explore these cavities. But you do not have to be a scientist to enjoy the wonders underground. As all fashion returns, the caves are again a place to visit.
The caving activities offer a different way of enjoying natural tourism. Often combined with other activities, the visit and exploration of caves is an ideal proposal for those who seek new discoveries. Accompanied by a group of adventurers like you, you will cross paths surrounded by the native fauna and flora, heading to the depths. There are some tourism proposals for underwater caves, so they are combined with diving activities. Whether on land or water, this sport combines low intensity activity and learning about our natural environment, making it perfect for children with a certain physical capacity. Of course, do not forget to wear good shoes! There is a lot to visit and some caves have a long journey, there will be difficult to find a good bench where you can rest your feet.
Once inside, you will walk along routes where very few have stepped on, maybe even the last ones who ventured to live with the mammoths, who knows? In there, time is relative. The formations that you will discover in these cavities are the result of such a slow process, that the picture may be the same as that of then. In any case, it would not hurt to make some good pictures of life underground, as long as it is respectful of the conditions of each cave. Speleology will bring you closer to a fauna and flora often forgotten, but as spectacular as many other species on the surface.
But in speleology, not everything is to observe. To discover the secrets of the depths, you must advance through intricate horizontal and vertical steps, which will test your skills always from the safety of a suitable team and the help of an expert guide. Not in vain is considered a sport and often reaches the condition of risk, but it will be up to you to choose the experience that best suits your interests and your abilities. Choose the option you choose, the adventure is assured!
