Full description
The tour begins with pickup from your hotel in Krakow and travels to the famous Wieliczka Salt Mine. Meet your guide for the day and then head underground for a 2-hour tour of this fascinating location. As you delve deeper into the mine, notice how the temperature changes from the world above, remaining at a stable 14 to 16 degrees all year round. Listen to your guide share fascinating stories and legends about the mine as you trace the pathways of the miners down 800 steps to reach a depth of 135 meters underground.
