Caving Adventures



Cave Adventure!

This is a caving story written about Vertical Adventure Guides: Click Here

Experience what it feels like to be a “true explorer” in an undeveloped “wild cave”!!

Vertical  Adventure Guides explore caves perfect for beginners , meaning the main passages are tall enough to walk thru with some narrow corridors and shallow ceilings. Join us at Popp’s Cave in beautiful Wisconsin where there are some smaller passages that branch off and curve back around to the main corridor. Explorers can also enjoy the true experience of “caving” by crawling around and wiggling thru some tight places!!

Caves temperatures remain at 55-60 degrees Fahrenheit– making them perfect for outdoor activity during the winter months when outside activity usually slows down. The caves are great for adventurers and beginners giving an authentic experience and beautiful introduction to the life and landscape of the subterranean world!
