Caving trips on the Chartreuse massif

The Chartreuse is a small mountain massif prealpine, wild and little frequented. Located between the departments of Savoie and Isère, it is quickly accessible from Grenoble in the south, Chambéry in the east and Lyon in the northwest. From Lyon we will reach this massif by Saint Laurent du Pont.

Chartreuse massif isolated by the ancient Isère glacier Valley which split it off from Vercors massif in the South-West and from Belledonne range on the South-East. On the North-West, the Trouée des Marches, ancient glacier Valley too, split it off from Bauges massif.

Karsrtique, with many limestone anticlinal and synclinal sections, crests, gorges and deep canyons sculpted by water erosion, forests with various species, Chartreuse massif shelters wonderful speleology caves to discover.
