Visiting the Choranche Caverns, Vercours France

About 45 minutes from Grenoble in the Vercours region of the French Alps are the Choranche Caverns. We spent a day this summer visiting them. The beauty was beyond astonishing and the history also very interesting. They believe that they have been inhabited by humans for thousands and thousands of years. Take an inexpensive tour of the caverns, see the artifacts, and meet the eyeless salamanders. The salamanders were actually brought to the caverns by a student in the 1970's from Eastern Europe and are not native to the caves. It was difficult to take photos inside the caverns due to the lighting but here are a couple.
See France yourself on our Tours.
