Located in the heart of the Dordogne Valley, near Rocamadour and Sarlat, the Gouffre de Padirac is the largest underground natural heritage site in France.
Your visit begins with a 103-metre descent underground by lift or stairs, followed by a walk through the caves to the pier, where you set off for a boat ride. The river takes you past the Grand Pendeloque, an impressive 60-metre-long stalactite that hangs over the Lac de la Pluie. Disembarking from the boat, you continue to the Lac des Gours and the incredible Salle du Grande Dôme whose cathedral-like ceiling rises to a height of 94 metres, revealing a multitude of geological wonders shaped by nature over millions of years.
More than 25 million visitors have marvelled at the caves since its discovery by Édouard-Alfred Martel in 1889.
