Caves of La Balme, La Balme-les-Grottes

4.3
#2 of 11 in Nature in Isere
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.

  • The caves offer a very nice tour! We discovered the treasures at every turn and lighting perfectly immerses us in the mood. The two proposed mazes provide a thrill of novelty and adventure. All this in a beautiful setting. In short, I highly recommend.

  • We spent a pleasant Sunday afternoon in the family discovering these caves. Apart from the home which was a little cold we enjoyed everything! The explanations are sufficient for a solo visit and we can see many riches: underground lake, caves of bats, huge paintings. And to complete the mazes where we go belly to make the visit even more interactive and allows access to incredible places hidden from the cave with breath taking views. If you're in the area it's to come! Allow an hour to visit about.
