  • I have many experience with show caves but this cave is one of the best and most pretty caves that I visit in my life. If you like showcaves this one of the best.

  • This is such a beautiful cave made by Mother Nature. I was so amazed by just looking at all the stalactites, stalagmites, beautiful soda straws, columns, and flowstones. They’ve been there for over 1000 years. There are small and medium underground lakes around the cave with fresh water, and a few lazy moving animals could make your kids interested. This is a cave that both adults and children alike can enjoy visiting.. After walking through a thousand stairs, you will enjoy a show of lights near the end of the tour. It is definitely worth it. Entering with a cardigan or a jacket in summer could help. We did visit with a one hour tour, and our tour guide spoke both French and English. Outside the cave, there is a restaurant with a beautiful view and a gift shop. If you still have time after visiting the cave, you can ask your tour guide the way to walk around, or walk to the waterfall that is not far away from the cave. I highly recommend booking the ticket online before visiting, it could save you a lot of time. The price of a ticket for adults is 12€, children from 0 to 3 years old is 1.50€ , 4 years old to 14 years old is 7.50€, 15 years old to 18 years old is 10.50€.
  • Beautiful cave easily accessible. Not a lot to see but the view is to die for! Reserving in advance is advised since it’s always packed. The tour guides are well organized & there is a large option for language translation for the non-French speakers. At the end of the tour, inside the cave, there was a musical lights show that played. It was very different i liked it, it brought the cave to life. I took a lot of pictures and videos. A souvenir shop is located at the exit as for the bar is overpacked which makes the service slow. The staff was friendly and there’s a restroom near the parking. This place is not advised for people who fear heights or people with disabilities. It is child friendly and family oriented. It is definitely a place for photography enthusiasts.
