Experience a real adventure in the Wieliczka Salt Mine. Become a real miner and go into the darkness equipped with a pickaxe.
The miner's route is a unique experience for those who want to add some action to their holiday. Avoid the crowded tourist route and explore the mine like a real miner.
Your adventure begins with the procurement of protective clothing and equipment, such as a lamp, which is sometimes your only source of light. As soon as you look like a real miner, the journey begins. Through the oldest preserved mine shaft, you descend into darkness to complete the tasks assigned to you by your guide. Be ready to dig for salt and measure the contraction of methane. Carry out each task carefully because the foreman will then check your work.
The path takes you through a dizzying web of tunnels held by thick wooden beams. Test your physical condition - real miners may have to crawl from one chamber to another. The miner's route gives you direct access to a unique mining site with its medieval pits. During the tour, a professional guide will help you discover the secrets of the mining traditions and rituals. The tour ends with an official ceremony that allows participants to call themselves "miners".
The visit is an active expedition and requires increased physical effort. The trail does not connect with the tourist route and associated chambers - including the Chapel of St. Kinga.
The tour takes place under the supervision of a guide. The temperature in the mine is constant (about 14 degrees), and therefore it is recommended to bring warm clothing even in the summer. It is recommended to wear comfortable shoes (part of the route may by covered by mud).
The price does not include fees for photography and filming (you can buy it at the mine for 10 PLN). It is forbidden to smoke and use open flame in the mine. The adventure route is accessible to persons over 10 years of age. Unfortunately, the Adventure Route is not wheelchair accessible.
Please be at least 15 minutes earlier at the meeting point.
