Questions sur les animations
  • I purchase my tickets on the internet. Should I print them or can I present my reservation on my phone ?


    • To avoid any problem, it is preferable to have proof of purchase on your side with your tickets downloaded beforehand on your smartphone. 3 or 4G coverage on the site is not always easy. However if you forget, do not worry: we have the trace of your reservation at the reception of the site!


    • Remember to come to the site 15 minutes before the start of the reserved visit or activities.

  • Should you book the prehistoric workshops ?


    • Prehistoric workshops cannot be reserved. Each workshop is limited to approximately 30 persons. It is therefore not necessary to book because there are many timetables available for each workshop. When you arrive in the morning, you can firstly visit the caves and then do all the prehistoric entertainments.


    • Depending on the crowds in the park, we add an animator and therefore activities.


    • You can however make your reservation for the guided tour of the caves organized at fixed times (see timetables according to the calendar)


    • Our recommendation: before your arrival, organize your day according to the times indicated on our calendar page.

  • What is the best way to organize your day ?


    • We advise you to plan your day by targeting the workshops you absolutely want to do and the time at which you prefer to visit the caves.
