  • Largest cave room I've ever seen! You get to see at the Hall just white light (natural colors) and with mood lighting. With the coloured lighting everything looks even more impressive and the light and sound effects contribute enormously to the stories that you hear on the go. The acoustics are so good that there are regular concerts are held in the cave. If we had had a longer holiday, we had also bought tickets for sure here!

  • The tour begins with a descent by cable car. Each very experienced guide comments on the visit and as active and as lights and sounds called stalagmites cabbage flower is beautiful there are a lot of markets come up but the guide we stopped several times to comment on the visit. After this visit take the Gevaudan Park to see the wolves.

  • We visited the aven Armand in July 2016 with our two children aged 4 and 8 years. It's a site surprising with a guided tour fun enough to attract the attention of children while remaining interesting for adults. Our oldest son said this was the best vacation visit. It would be a shame to spend in the area without visiting this site.

  • Simply the best cave I have ever visited, it's really worth going out of your way to visit, recommended.
  • Stunning place ... Try to get there for the 10am first tour ... Extra special
  • Essential. A journey to the center of the Earth as in the novel by Jules Verne. A funicular leads us into a huge cavity where grows forest of stalagmites. Spotlight dress color these huge columns. An unforgettable show. I highly recommend to make a detour to visit this site. The temperature is cool in the cave, predict a wool. €11,50 for adult, $ 8.60 for teenagers and €7,50 for children, it's a bit expensive for a family but, the show is guaranteed.

  • Spectacular spot, where I could enter despite the dog. Dogs should be placed in your backpack or purse. In the hall you will discover wonderful video projections on the walls, with sounds, colours and what we see is so beautiful to excite. And I think that Shepherd of sheep that, one day, he discovered the shaft and driven by curiosity caló in with a wooden ladder and rope, holding a lamp, unaware that under him lurked a treasure. The stalagmite in the world (30 meters) here looks like a pencil in front of the vault. It is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen and it tells a degree in geology. Congratulations to the French scene. Very impressive Shepherd shadow projection while climbing from the duct and very artistic to images of worlds and fantastic animals on the walls of the vault with commentary from "voice" by Jules Verne.

  • I wasn't expecting to find a place as beautiful with a spectacular geology under the ground. It is very careful with lighting that highlights the limestone forms. I recommend very much his visit.
