Cave Landmark Must See
Grab comfortable shoes and a warm sweater to explore Gouffre de Padirac, a 33-m (108-ft) wide natural chasm that's 13 C (55 F) all year long. After you descend 103 m (994 ft) using the elevator, lifts, and staircases, you'll board a boat on the the subterranean river for a 500 m (1,640 ft) ride. At Rain Lake, resume your tour of the Great Caves on foot, past formations wrought by a millennia of erosion from flowing water. The caves and surrounding parks are family friendly, with children's activities, a picnic site, a restaurant, a park, and a gift shop. To avoid long lines, book advanced tickets online for admission, the tour, and elevator access.

  • Beautiful water work offering us breathtaking sculptures and an extraordinary underground river

  • To do at least once, very nice cave. For postcard purchases, souvenirs, I find it a GREAT ARNAQUE..... far too expensive for the average French I find it HONTEUX.....
