Also, there is free Wi-Fi access on all tour vehicles. Bottled water is also available in all our vehicles.

A PREHISTORIC CAVE LIKE YOU’VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE

Discover brand-new Lascaux IV International Center of Parietal Art. The museum is a triumph of technology: unlike any other cave visits, Lascaux 4 employs different set designs, displays, state-of-the-art interactive workshops and immersive technology to bring it to life. For the very first time, all of Lascaux cave is revealed. This new center features an interactive gallery experience that blends Art, History and Culture with intelligence and sensitivity. At the heart of the experience you will discover a life size, state of the art facsimile cave that reveals the wonders of Lascaux as they were first seen.

In 2018, the museum was listed on Time Magazine’s 100 Greatest Places to visit saying: “The Snohetta-designed complex features some 600 prehistoric paintings and 1,000 engravings, all painstakingly re-created by a team of two dozen artists working from physical castings and advanced 3-D digital scans or the original artwork”!

After the visit and some time for personal discovery, the tour will also take you along the Vezere Valley for stops in Les Eyzies and Saint Léon village depending on timing.

After the tour, return to Sarlat.
