La Verna "Chevalier"


3 hours + access to the cave entrance - licenced caving guide


Chevalier cavern – 3 hours

 

Medium-level hike

MINIMUM AGE: 12 YEARS

Follow in the footsteps of the first explorers, accompanied by a qualified caving guide and ardent enthusiast of the La Pierre Saint-Martin cave system.  Starting from La Verna, this visit is a good introduction to caving. The narrow passages - where crawling would be required - can be avoided, but the terrain is rough, without paths. The visit takes you upstream of the hydro-electric water intake, all the way to another big cave room: Chevalier.
