Gouffre de Padirac in France

Barque proche de la Pendeloque, stalactite géante de 60 mètres de long. Crédits : C. Gerigk / SES de Padirac

A must see.. ! We were visiting family in Cahors and they took us here. Tickets were €17 each but it’s a well organised, professional and unique lifeyyexperience so good value.

Underground experience with river cruise Well spent two hours in the caves. The little underground river tour is a lovely bonus. We enjoyed the tour and so did our teenage girls.

Good fun for all the family If you have already seen some caves, the Gouffre de Padirac is on another level as it provides over 2 km of paths about 100m underground. Half of the visit is by foot and the other is by boat.

SHARE
The Gouffre de Padirac, the most famous cave in Europe, is considered as one of the most interesting geological sites in France. After a vertiginous descent, by lift or stairs, of 103 metres, you embark on a boat trip along the subterranean river with spectacular views on the galleries. That's when you discover the "Grande Pendeloque" - a gigantic stalactite of 60 metres high - hanging by a string, it appears to admire itself in the "Lac de la Pluie". You then walk towards the "Lac des Gours" or the "Salle du Grand Dôme" with its 94 metres high vault.
