In a unique and unspoilt natural setting in Couvin are the Neptune Caves, where you’ll be plunged into the depths of rock hundreds of millions of years old.
Are you fascinated by the underground world? Or are you just keen to experience something new? Either way, you’re in luck, as there’s incredible scenery waiting for you here: for 45 minutes, you’ll be immersed in a spectacular underground world, shaped by nature on all sides. A work of art sculpted by the passing of time, revealed to you with each twist and turn of its underground passages over the course of your visit, which will be rounded off by a splendid sound and light show on an underground river!
A Site With Plenty to Discover
Mind reeling with astonishment as you leave the caves? You wouldn’t be the only one! Eager for more? Then set off to explore the paths around this Natura 2000 protected area on the lookout for the typical species of this special slice of nature. To guide you, there are illustrated information panels along the path outside the caves. A great opportunity to find out more about the four themes covered: ‘Where does our limestone come from?’, ‘The river l’Eau Noire (literally “The Black Water”) and the karstic phenomena,’ ‘Fauna and flora to protect’ and ‘The Caves, an environment conducive to life?’. A fun and fascinating day for all the family!
