4.0
#2 of 8 in Nature in Aude
Cavern features like draperies, waterfalls, and columns come to life at Gouffre geant de Cabrespine, one of the world's largest caves open to tourists. The crystallization in the cave is varied: calcite, aragonite, and a range of colored metal oxides exist here, some of which create the famous red rooms. Also admire the iron oxide-colored rooms of bright ocher with trays and disks hanging from the ceiling, as well as the underground river carved into blue marble.

  • The advantage of visiting the abyss out of season? Is to have very little visitor and a guide who takes her time! We weren't 5 (minimum number of people for a tour), departure 13: 00 and end at 16:30. We went down 200 m underground with ladders, stairs and the harnets, then 100 m extra and have moved approximately 500 m into the cave with drops. We are left with only light our helmets and found all kinds of limestone shapes (stalagmites, stalactites, aragonites, drappiers etc) types of stones (marbles, crystals...). We walked in the underground river. Nature is amazingly beautiful. And when I think we saw a very small stretch...! I recommend to all lovers of nature. For 36euros per person I'm really not disappointed! I a-do-re!

  • The chasm is huge with a development (gateway) that can be impressive. But the speed of the spoils the fun visit. Precisely, the golf course in the cave is very very short, nothing exceptional and sound and light without great interest.

  • Visit family with teenagers. This is a site that is impressive with a multitude of calcified forms (stalactites, stalagmites, draperies etc...) He must visit. The passage on the bridge is notable (people sensitive to the Vertigo: refrain...) Do not forget to take warm clothing for the visit.

  • The cave is overwhelming, so well worth a visit. There is a large suspension bridge with at the end a glass piece where you can venture to in depth. Outside the cave is there are still some locations to visit and you can see different types of crystals. But this is what we have seen in other places more beautiful, so you should especially for the impressive size (the Eiffel Tower fits in the cave). The tours are only with French-speaking guide, but you can listen on translations via interactive devices. You'll get also some light shows on music, but this said me. Our children were slightly too small and therefore had a little too much fright.
