Worth a visit if you are in the area. Unfortunately the tour was in French but we still enjoyed it. Clever lighting and stunning areas. Take a jumper as its only 10C inside.

We came by car, the nearest big city is Grenoble. you can enter the cave website and asked them: google visites-nature-vercors The best way is by car since the cave is remote place. Regards Oded
