French Guided tour

1h from Lyon, Genève or Annecy - In Jura's mountains

Duration: 1 hour (+30 min Belvedere)

Access the entrance to the underground.

A guide will explain the formation and history of the Caves of Cerdon in a simple and interactive way. You will walk between stalactites and stalagmites to emerge under a majestic porch which will allow you to choose:

  • to reach the reception of the site with the guide, or

  • continue through the siphon of the old river to reach a belvedere in the middle of the cliff overlooking the vineyard of Cerdon (return on your steps to the large porch).

This last section, which gives access to the belvedere, has a greater drop not recommended for people who do not wish to make an ascent effort.

To extend your day in the great outdoors, opt for the 1-day Pass (visit to the Caves and prehistorics workshops) and learn about the gestures and know-how of our prehistoric ancestors.
