A trek to the famous Grotte des Demoiselles cave
*Assistance by vehicle and accommodation included
Fancy a combination of horse-riding and underground EXPLORATION?
Cavalquinta offers you propose its very latest trek, created specially for horse-lovers, and those who like to explore unusual mysterious places!
We’ll be setting off from Quintanel, leaving the Causse de Blandas heading south, towards the Valley of the Buège, a wild, open space before crossing the garrigue of the area around Montpellier.
Then we’ll head for Thaurac, the vast plateau located between Ganges and Saint-Bauzille de Putois, where we’ll make a stopover. Next, it’s off to the Grotte des Demoiselles, a jewel of the valleys around Ganges, for an exceptional private guided tour.
After leaving our horses, we will discover all the mystery of this natural stone backdrop that Nature has so patiently sculpted. Our guide will take us on the normal traditional tour but prolong it by two hours, leading us into areas where the public don’t usually have access. We’ll have plenty of time to explore Les Grands Orgues (Great Organs) or The Balcon des Abîmes (Balcony over the Abyss) and The Rideau aux Milles Colonnes (Curtain of a thousand columns) at complete leisure.
Finally, we’ll be back in the saddle for our last day and heading back up the valley as far as Le Vigan where our journey ends.

Food: Packed lunches at midday, breakfast and evening meal at the gite and at the bivouac.
