Descend 100 metres into Padirac cave (Gouffre de Padirac) this summer.

The added fun of an underground boat trip makes this our favourite cave in the Dordogne, bring the family and don't forget your jumper!

Our favourite cave in the Dordogne, the Padirac cave (Gouffre de Padirac) is a really great family day out.

The cave is entered by descending nearly 100m down into the mouth of the cave, then boarding a small boat to travel along the underground stream.

'Explore 'Lac de Gours' and 'Lac Supérieur', mystical undergrounds lakes and the 'Salle du Grand Dôme' an enormous well and admire the 60 metre giant stalactite all discovered by Édouard-Alfred Martel over 130 years ago.
