Underground Adventures

If caving explorations are you and your friends’ thing then a trip to explore the magnificent subterranean caves of Europe is a must. Discover a world of new depths right below your feet at Grotte de Paques in the Ardèche, one of the best wild caving systems in the whole of France with over 60 km of galleries. Explore a former underground river in a 600m long circuit, huge waterfalls and even a wine cave 80m underground where you and your group can partake in a spot of wine tasting in a unique setting.
