  • We come from the pierre saint martin (12km) ski station. Took the trip of 3 hours (minimum 12anis) and without a doubt, worth. The guide accompanies you at all times and as good espeleogolo, explains the curiosities of the cave, langowski is Spanish. The ride requires some physical preparation, but the reward is more than ample. With the entry will be included the riding, diver, front and harness. For young, it will be an experience you will not forget. Undoubtedly the spectacular nature of the cave together with our guide, Jean François, you made the day round. There are trips shorter and others longer, depending on the qualities of each. (Including handicapped). Recommended 100%.
