For us three Americans it was the first time in Wales. We have been in various mines before, but this mine was unique. Our guide Lee fitted us out with rubber boots, rain gear, helmets with lights and climbing harnesses and then drove us in a cool military Range Rover to the mine. We hiked for 20 minutes to the entrance of the mine, and then spent 3 hours in the depth of the slate mountain. We rappelled down steep walls, zip-lined over underground water pools, and climbed up water falls. The whole experience was thrilling (we had never done anything like this before)! Our guide, Lee was helpful and friendly and was also knowledgeable in local mining history, and showed us artifacts as well as geological points of interest.
We highly recommend this company to anyone interested in exciting mine exploration!
