Walk of the Fireflies

Guided tour


The cave reveals itself to daring little explorers!

The Saint-Marcel team is offering you a new way to visit the cave.
In the dark, armed with your lantern and your courage, you'll experience new sensations in the converted galleries.
It's a chance to slip into the shoes of the explorers who discovered the cave almost 200 years ago by torchlight.
A sound and light show will punctuate your journey to highlight the wonders of the cave.
Join the gang of explorers for a unique adventure!

Speeches suitable for children and adults alike.
