Located in the heart of the natural reserve of the Gorges de l’Ardèche, the cave of Saint Marcel d’Ardèche is a gem of the underground world. For millions of years, water has carved the rock forming an exceptionnal system, creating a variety of landscapes, stalactites, mineral cascades and crystals.
With 60 km mapped, the cave of Saint Marcel d’Ardèche is one of the 10 biggest in France. Yet it’s exploration is unfinished, still attracting cavers and scientists alike. Escale Aventure company will lead you on a discovery of the hidden beauties of this wonderful cave, from the easiest half-day walk for all the family to the much more athletic day-exploration.
This itinerary will take us back a few million years, as we follow an ancient underground riverbed, trekking through enormous galleries such as "The Painter's Gallery", "Hell's Hole", "The Columns"...
Exploration of the underground network of the cave with an extraordinary savory blind taste.
A slightly more athletic exploration of the cave up to "The Stalactite Chamber" Underground abseiling and zip line, crossing of a natural bridge, huge chambers, this trip has it all !
