  • What is the main difference between Lascaux II and Lascaux IV?

    Lascaux II cave is the first replica that was made of the original Lascaux Cave (Lascaux I). We still organise private tours to Lascaux II cave as there is a special ambiance that one can feel as you visit. Lascaux II cave visit only presents 2 of the main rooms of the original cave but this does mean that you see most of the Paleolithic Art. On this site, there is nothing but the cave to visit.

    Lascaux IV is the most recent replica of the original cave. The replica presents the original cave in its entirety and has used all the latest technology to make the Paleolithic Art look completely identical. The cave is located withing the International Center of Paleolithic Art which means that you have other possibilities. You will begin with the tour of the Cave and then will access different rooms that questions the place Lascaux has in cave art and its links with contemporary creation.
  • Do you need to do a Tour or can Lascaux IV be self guided?

    Whether you book the tour through us or independently, you have to take the tour of the cave. If you book the tour through our company, you will be introduced by one of our expert guides to the visit of the cave. More important, we pre-book the tour for our small groups and have a direct access to the main attraction. Booking with us means you do not wait in line.
    However, please note that English tours of the Caves are very limited in number, most of the visits are in French. 
    Your guide will explain the cave before and after the tour as simultaneous translation in the cave is strictly forbidden.
  • Where can we buy tickets for Lascaux IV?

    For the tickets, no problem, we have you covered. As the main tour operator of the Dordogne we have a partnership with Lascaux IV that enables us to offer our clients fast track access to the visits.
  • What is the temperature inside Lascaux IV?

    Even though you will be visiting a replica, the inside temperature of the cave is exactly the same as in the original one - 13° Celsius, 56° Fahrenheit. It is therefore suggested to wear warm clothes for the visit.
