Aude Caving Cathar Country in Occitanie

Our Cacing sites are situated in Minervois, Corbières, or Haute Vallée de l’Aude near Carcassonne and Narbonne. There is, in the depths of these Massifs known for their wonderful landscapes, natural treasures of the underground world.

We find in these Massifs, introduction cavities accessible to the youngest ones (from 7/8 years old) as well as the most technical and varied abysses. We welcome groups starting from 4 people. If you are fewer people, it is sometimes possible to make you join another group regarding your availabilities.
Caving requires a good knowledge of the technique and the equipment used. You will leave with a qualified guide who is going to teach you the basics of this activity. This activity is before anything else convivial and accessible to all, far from its elitist reputation or even far from the claustrophobia evoked. After a first exploration of the cavities with horizontal or vertical progress we will help you to understand the techniques required for the progression. Speleology is a sporty activity but essentially a science which focuses on geology, underground water flows, fauna, flora and human activities in abysses and caves. Our goal is to present you safely and playfully this natural and cultural heritage.

According to where you live or where you stay, we can guide you on several sites :

Secteur Minervois (20 minutes away from Carcassonne) avec les Casals or grotte de Sallèles.
Secteur Corbières (30 min away from Narbonne) with les Gorges du Congoust.
Secteur Haute vallée de l’Aude (20 min away from Limoux ou 1H00 away from Perpignan) at the bottom of the Pyrénées with the cavities of Nantilla; Le Majestier,Sabarac.
