THE BELGIAN CAVE GUIDE: 25 classic trips

The caves that are presented in this guide, are NOT necessarily the BIGGEST, DEEPEST or MOST BEAUTIFUL caves in our country. One of the most important selection criteria was the accessibility of the caves. This means that all caves listed below, are freely accessible, or you can easily and quickly obtain permission to visit them. As a result, caves such as Hotton, Fontaine de Rivire, Vilaine Source etc... (all splendid caves), where you'll have to wait at least 6 months up to 1 year before getting permission, are not listed.
All caves listed represent (in my eyes) a certain interest: sporting cave (e.g. Chawresse), geology (e.g. Trou Ozer), nice formations (Galerie des Sources) etc. Of course, assembling a list of "classic" Belgian caves is always an arbitrary thing. Therefore, don't consider this guide as being complete: it isn't!
