Highlights
    What to Expect
    A staggering 1,072 feet (327 meters) deep, the Wieliczka Salt Mine comprises an extensive network of underground chambers and tunnels, most of which have been carved by hand from the natural salt blocks.

    Choose your preferred departure time and meet a private driver at your central Krakow hotel, traveling 30 minutes southeast of the city to Wieliczka. Arrive at the UNESCO-listed salt mine, join up with your guided group tour and begin your descent along the underground stairs.

    As you explore the surrounding tunnels and chambers, your guide will discuss the history behind the 700-year-old salt mine and lead you to some of its most impressive features. Visit the Chapel of St Kinga, a church where almost everything, from its chandeliers to the altar, is made from salt and see the beautiful salt lake in Eram Baracz Chamber.

    Afterward, explore an exhibition that documents the history of mining in Poland and examine some of the more fascinating artifacts with your guide. Learn about mining techniques in the Middle Ages and study some old tools that were once used to dig and work the shafts. You’ll also pass mythic figures carved from salt and hear about the unique microclimate below ground.

    Finish your tour 443 feet (135 meters) underground before traveling back up to the surface via the mine's high-speed lift. Reunite with your private driver for a relaxing trip back to Krakow, where you'll be returned to your hotel.
