Famed for its caves, the Dordogne Valley has some of the earliest and finest examples of prehistoric cave art. That’s not all, on this trip to rural France you’ll discover picturesque villages, sensational cuisine and a wealth of history.

Vividly brought to life in ochre and charcoal are wild animals and human figures up to 30,000 years old. Our Guide Lecturer's tell the story of the art, its discovery and what is known of the people who created it. We will see some of the world famous rock art sites – taking you as close as it is possible to get to the lives of our most remote Ice Age ancestors.

Please note, cave visits may vary according to seasonal opening hours and therefore the itinerary may change.
