Head deep below the earth’s surface for a half-day private tour of Krakow’s underground salt mines. Explore almost two miles of subterranean trails by foot, and learn the history of the 900-year-old site from medieval times until today. Tours include comfortable, round-trip pickup and drop-off in a private minivan. Proven health benefits from salt contact therapy (an old Eastern European tradition) are a special added bonus. 
  • A half-day guided tour of the Wieliczka Salt Mine
  • Get a rigorous workout with 800 steps to the bottom, or opt for a hassle-free elevator ride
  • Skip the pricey salt room treatments—you’ll get the same spa-like health benefits in the mines
  • Experience an off-the-beaten-track attraction dating from medieval times—almost a millennium ago

Très belle excursion. Un incontournable. La prise en charge était impeccable. Et le guide francophone à la mine, exceptionnel.
