      When you go to the Grotte du Grand Roc, you will first be surprised by the breathtaking view of the Vézère Valley. Then, you will travel through a veritable little mineral forest made up of an incredible variety and density of crystallizations. Can you recognize stalactites, stalagmites and calcite flows? You will also be amazed by the impressive amount of eccentrics! Not to be missed: the nocturnal visit to the cave with the hurricane lamp during the summer. Winter or summer, take advantage of the natural air conditioning of the cave, 16° all year round!

      EVENTS:


      • Night visit to the hurricane lamp: school holidays.
      Equipped with a storm lamp, you explore the cave in conditions close to those of its discovery by Jean Maury in 1924. A second exploration in the usual light will reveal the beauty of this mineral forest and you will be able to admire in more detail the incredible variety and density of crystallizations.

    Had a fantastic visit today and what a surprise. Not a huge cave, but so much to see and understand; took far too many pictures. An overwhelming experience. Our knowledgeable and sociable guide made our visit even more special.

    Excellent tour by our host who brilliantly captured the history behind the cave, and the rock formations. Spending almost 3 hours on site.

    We visited in June as I’d been to this cave many years ago as a child. I’d forgotten just how breathtaking it is, so so many beautiful calcium formations that just seem to get more spectacular to...
