  • Access to the cave by an uphill path that runs along the river. The trail is well laid out to have points of view on the waterfalls. We get 10 to 15 minutes at the ticket office where will receive you a small led flashlight (you can keep it then... the kids loved). The visit is done in 2 steps: the active part of the cave (which is regularly flooded) then the highest part where we discover the concretions, stalactites... and above all something very rare: settlements of Flint in the limestone rock. The guide is very friendly and frankly professional, his speech is informative and not at all boring. The course is varied with places quite narrow and low (ceiling 1,40 m), which changes the caves all concreted.. .and made another originality of it. We can then down the path that runs along the other side of the River to admire up close the waterfalls. Provide good shoes and a fleece (it's 12 degrees fans the cave).

  • I did have a brief overview of the vats because access was closed but the Park alone is worth the look! Beautiful!

  • Access is a 15-minute walk, but it goes up a lot. Nice view of the cascades in amount (site of canyoning). It is a cave of several thousands of year with very low and narrow passages. Provide good shoes because in some places the ground is slippery. Also provide warm clothing as the constant temperature is 12 ° C. Little surprise during the purchase of tickets, the guide gives you a safety named Mélusine fairy cave led lamp. It is a site classified, to see if you are in the area or passing in the Grenoble region.
