About This Project

The Gouffre de Padirac is a mysterious, 30 meter wide and 75 meter deep well which for centuries was a source of superstition and ghost stories. Now anyone who is willing can descend into the hole, either by stairs or by elevator, for spectacular boat trip along an underground river. Part of the tour continues on foot, past underground lakes and monumentally tall halls.
