Millau Caving

In the hearth of the causses

Caving in Millau and the surrounding area gives you the chance to visit caves of varying sizes and to discover the history of their creation and discovery.

Your qualified guide will be in charge of the visit so all you need to do is go with the flow.

Conditions for taking part:
– From 8 years old
– Open all year round

Millau caving

Caving in Millau is an activity open to both beginners and experts, from the age of 8.

There are caves to suit everyone’s tastes, with varying degrees of difficulty, from beginner ‘découverte’ caves to challenging outings.

On a beginner caving trip, you’ll explore caves with a more horizontal profile, making them easier to access. Delve into the heart of the underground galleries full of history. In many cases, you’ll need to walk for around twenty minutes to reach the cave entrance.

For the challenging caving option, you’ll be venturing into caves with a more vertical profile.

Vertical means that you will often need a harness and a rope to abseil down into the cave.

This package is therefore reserved for fairly sporty people with some caving experience.

MILLAU caving

For a caving trip in Millau, you need to be well equipped.

Our teams will provide you with all the equipment you need, including caving overalls, boots and a helmet with a headlamp.

On your side, what you need to bring is fairly simple: comfortable clothing such as trousers, a long-sleeved t-shirt and knee-high socks to avoid getting cold in the cave. In caves, the temperature is generally between 10 and 12 degrees all year round.

The caves are located between 15 and 40 minutes from our outdoor activity centre in Millau, so you’ll need to take a car to get to the activity site.

Transport with Roc et Canyon is not included when you make your booking, so you will need to bring your own vehicle. If you have any problems with transport, please contact us so that we can work out a solution together.

Visits to the caves are only for those who are not afraid of a bit of hard work as you’ll need to walk about 15-20 minutes to reach the entrance.
