Spekul is the caving club of the university of Leuven, Belgium. We have about 50 members, both students and non-students.

Caving will take you to places most other people will only ever see on television. It’s a non-competitive sport, but it challenges you both physically and mentally. Successful teamwork is essential for a safe and enjoyable trip.

Caving is a great way to get to know yourself and your team-mates. Spekul organises training and trips for all levels of cavers, starting with day trips to Belgian caves suitable for complete beginners. As you build up experience you can consider joining our international expeditions exploring unknown parts of the Earth’s crust. (We also do many other activities: camping, biking, skiing and we are known to drink the odd beer)
