Full description

Enjoy a hotel pickup and roundtrip transportation to the Wieliczka Salt Mine. Take an in-depth guided tour through the stunning 13th-century UNESCO-listed site as you witness beautiful chambers carved in salt on the underground route. After your hotel pickup in Krakow, hop on a shared transfer ride to the nearby town of Wieliczka. Sit back and relax as you enjoy the view along your ride. Skip the hassle of booking on-site, and enjoy prearranged tickets waiting for you at the salt mine. Start the tour inside the salt mine by walking down long sets of steps, taking you 135 meters underground and through labyrinthine passageways, tunnels, and shafts. See underground lakes, four chapels, and unique statues carved by miners out of rock salt. Immerse yourself fully in the experience of visiting a unique place and a must-see attraction during your stay in Krakow. Once the guided tour is over, take a lift from the underground back up to the main ground level, marveling at the space around you once outside. Your driver will then drive you back to your accommodation in Krakow.

    We were picked up right outside our hotel and it was an easy experience getting to and from the salt mines. Our tour guide was lovely and informative and also very funny. Brilliant experience!
