Les Grottes de Bétharram

Straddling the Béarn (Pyrénées-Atlantiques) and Bigorre (Hautes-Pyrénées) a unique discovery awaits you: the Bétharram Grottos. Head out for the complete crossing of a mountain with punting, exit in a little train. The caves are among the most beautiful and strange to visit as they give away, in the variety of their aspects, the key to the formation of almost all caves, either dead or active. See the 5 superimposed storeys dug out at different times. The 1st level is accessible to people with reduced mobility. Explanations are given over a PA in 10 languages.
