Visit the UNESCO-listed Wieliczka Salt Mine the easy way from Kraków on this organized tour. Don’t worry about figuring out bus timetables or hiring expensive taxis to get to this popular natural and heritage wonder. Learn about the enormous salt cave, its history as a mine, and the amazing carved sculptures on a guided tour through two miles (3.5 kilometers) of tunnels.
Best for travelers who like walking, plus there are many steps
Well organised trip to the salt mines. Picked up from our apartment and only a small group. Once at salt mines was handed over to guides in a group of around 30. Lots of steps going down around 360 steps but a lift available at the end to come back up. Lots of walking involved so comfortable shoes. Given headphones for tour which was informative and interesting.
Very unique tour which should be on your itinerary if you have a 1/2 day in your Krakow schedule. A lot of walking which includes roughly 900 stairs (most of those going down) but you don’t notice the amount of travel until the end. A lot of history in a one of a kind setting.
