  • We're taking you in a cave with only equipment a candle. You must then explain using this candle but also swim at the same time! (The strings are here to help you). Inside we can jump from a rock and move into a hole where flows the river that takes you to another room. If you come to see geological formations is not held, here it's more adventure a tour.

  • The "Champey portal" Hotel is a 5-minute walk. You must go in suit of bath or mesh, since you must swim inside the caves, going with a guide, you get a candle that you take care not to go out you all the way. Recommended!
