The towns below are near grottes, or caves, that can be visited by tourists without any experience of potholing.
|Arudy. Small town at the foot of the Ossau valley|
|25 km, Grottes de Betharram. A system of caves so big that you have to take a small train for part of the way!|
|Hasparren. Busy indutrial town in the Pays Basque|
