The speleology
in Cévennes

Between the Ardèche and the Tarn, the Cévennes of southern France are the ideal terrain for caving. Indeed, by its causses and valleys, the Cevennes are full of unknown underground treasures. Thus, beginners and experienced speleologists are numerous for their holidays at the Domaine d’Anglas to discover the Cevennes underground world!

An atypical adventure

With family or friends, you go on a journey into the bowels of the earth. A magical and unique discovery within everyone’s reach. Down here, the sun’s rays barely break through and the luminosity is low. However, before your eyes follow an extraordinary underground landscape: meanders, cavities, caves, stalagmites, stalactites… In this atypical adventure, also take the time to listen to the beauty of silence !

Speleology and Science

Much more than a simple sporting activity, caving is also a scientific adventure to discover the fauna and flora underground. Indeed, many insects, invertebrates or bats live in the darkness of caves. That’s not all, geology also takes an important place where limestone strata mix with volcanic and glacial cavities.
