Caves of La Balme, La Balme-les-Grottes
(4.3/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
A chapel built into the rocks at the entrance of Caves of La Balme launches your caving excursion. Its placement is an architectural feat rare for the period. Formations inside the cave will also intrigue as you navigate stalagmites thrusting up from the floor and admire ceilings of dripping stalactites. Put Caves of La Balme on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our La Balme-les-Grottes vacation trip planner.

  • Worth a look. One (or some) curiosity (geological (s) responsible (s) history (smugglers, François 1st). Even more fun on Halloween night. You will not regret.

  • Passing through the region with a rainy day, we went to visit the caves with my 10 year old son. It is really superb, several rooms, scenes, heights and mazes will satisfy the small and large. On the other hand, the caves are not intended for people big and claustrophobic! It was necessary that I take on me to make the maze François 1st to please my son, but I do not regret. I highly recommend this place.
