A funicular goes down you to 60 meters deep, you arrive on a balcony overlooking the Aven. For people with reduced mobility it is possible to stay on the balcony to enjoy the show. For others it is possible to go down the Aven with the guide, there are about 130 steps divided into levels. The price is reasonable. The theme of the journey to the center of the Earth of Jules Verne is really well declined and artistic.
Visite parfaite de ce site : bon accueil, guide compétente et qui prend le temps de discuter avec nous, le son et lumière moderne et la beauté de cette forêt de stalagmites. more »Perfect this site visit: welcome and competent guide who takes the time to talk with us, the modern light and sound and the beauty of this forest of stalagmites.
Très beau site ,mais le site internet expliqué que les personnes à mobilité réduite peuvent descendre sur la plateforme de la première salle et la visite à pied est de 450 m . Ce qui n est pas précisé... more »Very nice site, but the website explained that persons with reduced mobility can go down on the platform of the first room and walking tour is 450 m. What n is not specified c is to down 200 steps. So pay €12 for a tour of nearby funicular guide that's expensive!
Stunning place ... Try to get there for the 10am first tour ... Extra special
A funicular railway gets down you to 60 meters deep and we discover a wonderful room. Colors are projected into the cavity is really very beautiful. The theme of Jules Verne's original. The shop offers beautiful things and Rosy at the cash register is a super nice person. For people with reduced mobility, there is possibility to stay high in the cave. For others, about 120 contracts with bearings lead down everything inside.
Impressive underground cavity! The development of this cave was very well done. Equipment allowing access without too much effort but not suitable for people with disabilities (except first floor).
