Passage aquatique dans la rivière souterraine de la grotte Gournier.


At the bottom of Presles’ crag in the Vercors mountain range, so in dazzling landscape, the caving offered here give ou access to on of the most incredible underground you’ll ever could see.

This unique underground river takes you visiting the cave with a room of rare fossils. This day trip will leave you with unforgettable memories.

A 130-foot-long crystal-clear lake requires the use of an inflatable boat to start and get further. A short climbing gives access to the fossils gallery, a 3000 ft long room, where are visible many concretions as stalagmites, stalactites and drapery you saw only in Jules Vernes Movies until now!!

An option allows to get through a 33-foot-long passage where you have to walk on all fours among some rock blocs. The caving world is yours.

At the end, the exit off the cave is the same than its enter, to find back there the afternoon sun light.
