Itinerary
After pickup at your Kraków hotel, travel for about an hour to reach Wieliczka Salt Mine, one of the oldest and largest salt mines in the world. With your included entrance fee, enter the mine and descend more than 200 steps into an expensive underground network. A guide will show you the way through a maze of tunnels, chambers, and stairways built over eight centuries.

Learn about the fascinating history of the mine and browse a collection of antique mining equipment that dates back to the Middle Ages. Breathe deep in the mine’s mineral-rich microclimate, which is thought to have health benefits, and admire detailed shrines and sculptures carved entirely from salt rock.

You’ll be dropped off at a convenient point in central Kraków after the tour. As a bonus, receive a free Kraków sightseeing audio guide when you book.

Disappointing organisation after excellent Auschwitz tour but Salt Mines superb

After an excellently organised Auschwitz tour with Discover Cracow, this was disappointing. When we got to the Salt Mines, we were put straight in the queue and only then told it would be 1h30 minutes before a toilet break (this after having been the first...More

Nice trip, but disappointed with the end.

Enjoyed the tour, but the end was very rushed and didn’t even have time to take a couple of photos of some fabulous examples of Salt Sculpture, only to get outside and have almost an hour to kill. Disappointed at the end.

Thank Christine M
