Speleo tourism is a guided incursion into a cave, which involves finding the way and overcoming various obstacles (walking in water, crawling, rappel, pits, waterfalls).
Avid speleologists are thus offered an unprecedented experience, exploring the depths being full of challenges but at the same time fascinating for those thirsty for knowledge.
The caves are rich in formations (stalactites, stalagmites, stilolites, canopies, stone canvases, drapes, columns). Certain species of cavernous species will be met: mushrooms, worms, cave snails, insects, fish with rudimentary eyes, bats.
Speleo tourism can only be practiced with proper equipment, consisting of: helmets, harnesses, ropes and insurance devices, lighting systems, neoprene suits.
