Initiation for young and old
(From 6 years old)
The great diversity of the cavities of the Lot and Quercy valley allows everyone to discover the magical world of caves.
To begin, let's go into the "horizontal" cavities. Your guide will take you cross narrow, crawling passages, mazes, … to emerge in immense rooms where water has shaped a thousand concretions.
Caving... but not only
La via corda, it is an extraordinary experience which is practiced in a vertical type cave equipped with handrails, rope bridge and other abseiling descents... A way to explore the cavity from floor to ceiling while admiring the concretions up close of their training (from 1m40).
Push your limits
Beneath our feet lies a fascinating mineral world waiting for you. Exploration of so-called “vertical” caves is a great way to surpass yourself by approaching a more sporty and technical side discipline.
Put on your harness and familiarize yourself with the descenders, blockers, pedal et split passes to achieve secret galleries where your efforts will be rewarded by the discovery of unsuspected gems.
