Cuves sassenage


The Cuves de Sassenage are accessible by public transport from Grenoble.

From the car park of the caves or the church, depending on the number of visitors, you have to walk 15 minutes uphill to reach the entrance for tourist.

The entrance leads to the lower part of the Furon canyon. First, we start with the tourist part of the Cuves (stairs, railings) which is called "seven wonders of the Dauphiné".

At the end of the tourist section, there are two possible routes:

  • The first, is fun and varied with many variants between large galleries and narrower passages calls "four legs". It depends on the water level of the river, a 80m horizontal rope passage allows you to reach the room of siphon of the river from "Gouffre Berger", which is the first chasm to reach the mythical depth of -1000 in 1962, which is located in Autrans. It is also possible to progress along the underground river (provid gears for water level max at the knees).
  • The second course is made up of a loop route repeating some sections of the first course but completed by numerous climbs, ropes passages and two abseils of 15 and 12 meters with slightly more physical and narrow passages.

Additional 1 hour to progress compared to the first course.
