Easter Egg Hunt in the center of the earth


The Gouffre de Padirac, in partnership with “Chocolats Bovetti” hosts its famous Easter egg hunt for all children aged 4 to 12 years old. Hundreds of chocolates will be hidden all along the pathway.

A delicious event for young explorers!

THE GOUFFRE DE PADIRAC SHOWS SOLIDARITY: with the Association " Petits Princes "


As every year, the Gouffre de Padirac joins to the operation organized by the SNELAC (National Labor union of the Spaces of Leisure activities, Attractions and Cultural) with the association "Petits Princes" and will put back a part of the price of the admission ticket to this association which realizes the dreams of children and seriously sick teenagers.

THE GOUFFRE DE PADIRAC SHOWS SOLIDARITY: with the Association "Partage-Handicaps"


For the second collaboration with the Association " Partage et Handicaps ", the Gouffre de Padirac gives the possibility to about fifteen disabled people to live a unique journey in the center of the earth.
The whole site will be exclusively dedicated to them, at the end of the day. Every person will be accompanied with a voluntary guide helping him to cross 560 walking steps to discover this subterranean and vertiginous cave.

A socially responsible project for the Gouffre de Padirac, which unites its entire team.



Within the framework of the World Day Caves, and in partnership with the ANECAT (National Association of the Developers of Caves Fitted out for the Tourism), visits-discoveries will be proposed all day long around two themes: "On the steps of Edouard-Alfred Martel, founding father of the modern speleology" in the morning, and "Tales and Legends of the Gouffre de Padirac" in the afternoon, to fascinate youngs explorers.

Enough to put a global spotlight on the underground world!
