Overview
The UNESCO-listed Wieliczka Salt Mine, with its salt caverns and carvings, lies just south of Krakow. On this tour, swap the hassles of public transport for smooth door-to-door transfers to the mine from your Krakow hotel. Descend with a guide to tour the corridors and halls; learn about bygone mining processes, and admire the salt-chiseled chambers, including the showpiece St. Kinga Chapel. If you wish, upgrade for private round-trip transportation.
