Krakow: Guided Wieliczka Salt Mine Tour

1. Krakow: Guided Wieliczka Salt Mine Tour

Your tour begins in Krakow at the tour meeting point. From there your tour leader/English-speaking driver will pick you up and take you to Wieliczka. Prearranged tickets will be waiting for you at the salt mine, along with a local guide in your chosen language. The tour inside the Salt Mine lasts around 2.5 hours and starts with you walking down 400 steps. The tour will later end with a lift from the underground to the main ground level. Following your tour, you will be taken back to Krakow's meeting point. The Wieliczka Salt Mine dates back to medieval times and has a history of around 9 centuries of salt excavation. The tourist route through the mine is located 135 meters underground, and is accessible by stairs only. It is an absolutely unique place to visit and is a must-see during your stay in Krakow. One of the major benefits of visiting the salt mine is the health benefit of its special climate and micro-element-filled air.

What people are saying about Wieliczka

Really good tour and interesting. Would recommend doing this as some of the chapels are stunning. However we were walked to the opposite shaft to the entrance at the end and not told what was happening. It was a super long walk luckily our driver had told us where to go when we got out but a lot of people had no idea where they were at all so that wasn’t great.

Only downside, at the end of the visit, our guide did not accompany us to the elevator. We were picked up by a guide who didn't speak English and brought us out through the central well, which delayed us considerably and our bus almost left without us.

A nice experience to do for sure, dress light and comfortable shoes because it is hot 135 m underground and you can walk enough
