There’s something irresistible about caves — how they beckon to be explored, reminding us, perhaps, of our prehistoric past. But not all caves are created equal. There are those you stroll through to admire the stalactites — and there are those that require some extra chutzpah to probe. Take cave diving, for instance.

Beginning spelunkers, take note, and don’t go it alone.10 extreme ways to enjoy the outdoors
