Grottes de Betharram features five stories of caves that you can access by foot, boat, or train. Discovered in 1810, this was one of the first grottos open to the public and later was the first to use electric illumination. Travel along a 2.8 km (1.7 mi) route to see the whole cavern. If you leave the grottos by boat, you'll float into the river Gave de Pau.

The cave is superb and the end of the very friendly visit (I say no more must be discovered). A remake!

I recommend calling before or make sure that it is open. A penalty have we lost because it has very good looking!
Veel te druk in het hoog seizoen. Je moet soms 2uur wachten om binnen te kunnen. En echt spectaculair is het niet echt. Zou niet meer gaan kijken moest ik terug in de Pyreneeën zitten.

It also wouldn't really recommend it. Is very out of date as well.
The cave is huge! It felt like we were in there forever but our tiredness may have been due to the 45 minute cue we had to stand in. It was a bit of a cueing mission, cue for the bus, cue for the ticket, cue for the boat. The boat ride was short and deeply unspectacular but the train was fun! It is a spectacular cave in terms of size and the three young children got plenty of room to run as the tour progresses quite quickly. The ticket office and the gift shop are straight out of the 1920's.
It's a great place for groups of friends, couples and families. The tour takes about 1,5 hours and offers a great cave experience. You cannot enter alone, you have to join a tour. Afterwards one can also enjoy a beautiful café.
Brilliant and impressive half day tour. The your gets better and better and deeper and deeper, ending with a short miners train ride bringing you out to a large cafe and souvenir shop. Don't worry, there is no pressure to buy a coffee or souvenir, but most of us did because we were so happy with the underground experience.
Very nice.. Big cave whit Good lighting... The toilet by the entries is dirty. But the caves are very beautyfull.
A great cave exploration adventure, lead by very friendly guides. Personnalized explanations are available in multiple languages, allowing the full experience for non-french speakers.
