Gouffre de Padirac caves

Recommended
Dive into another world, one of the longest subterranean river networks in the world after Yucatán (40km!) in Mexico. A tour of this vertiginous chasm, its mysterious river and vast caverns decorated with gigantic limestone concretions remains a must for those keen to explore the Causse de Gramat. Here is a whole network of subterranean galleries and rivers. A fleet of flat boats awaits: embark on a fairytale boat trip on the "flat river".
