A small variety in the Perigord
This cave is a faithful replica of the original Lascaux I cave, which was closed to the public in 1963. Lascaux II was opened in 1972 and 1983 respectively. One of the most famous prehistoric caves in the world with very important rock paintings. Since 2016, an identical reconstruction can be visited at the International Centre for Parietal Art at the foot of the hill of Lascaux.

Gouffre de Proumeyssac
Very beautiful large cave with many light effects and perfect atmosphere. A worthwhile excursion. A special feature, you can be lowered into the cave 50 metres above the cave floor from the original entrance (5 pers.) by appointment at the ticket office or by telephone in a large basket, certainly a unique experience.

Gouffre de Padirac
The Gouffre de Padirac (Eng: Mouth of Padirac) is considered the most famous cave in Europe and one of the greatest geological curiosities in France. Like Edouard-Alfred Martel, who discovered it in 1889, after a dizzying 103-metre descent, head down the underground river to admire the Grande Pendeloque, a giant 60-metre-high stalactite. Then continue on foot to the “Salle du Grand Dôme”, whose vault is 94 metres high. Highly recommended!

Grotte de Lacave
The cave is located near the small town of Rocamadour. You take a small train from the cave entrance to the centre of the cave. Afterwards, you will hike through various grottos at 2000 m, past underground lakes, and there is no shortage of light effects here either. The return journey is by train.
