Hungary’s capital, Budapest, is famous for its hot springs all over the world. Many people visit Hungary’s famous thermal baths, but only a few know that the hot water rushing up from deep underground created something else too. In the limestone mountains, under Budapest, the heated water formed a huge cave system, which is thought to be more than 100 km long. The spas and caves of Budapest are planned to be declared part of the UNESCO World Heritage. The longest cave of Hungary is the more than 30 km (20 miles) long Pál-völgyi-cave system located in the Duna-Ipoly National Park. It is a real multi-level labyrinth system with most of its chambers under the residental districts of Budapest.

If you aren’t claustrophobic you can apply for our regularly scheduled cave tours which are guided by qualified caving guides. During the 2.5-3 hrs long tours you will often have to climb on walls and crawl through narrow passages so you have to be prepared for adventure. You will be supplied with overalls, helmets, and lights.

You don’t need to have any previous experience in caving.

It is a very special attraction, because it is underground. Interesting to see, although some parts are in complete darkness. Really something different

This is only for people who are looking to try something different, that challenges you and pushes beyond what you would normally do. I'm 6,4 and I found it very challenging to squeeze through the gaps, I went the wrong way at the sandwich and got stuck but didn't panic and found it a very thrilling experience. It's very involving,... More

As someone who had been dreaming of an "actual" caving experience for a very long time, I can say that I wasn't disappointed. Our guide was outstanding: knowledgeable, funny, encouraging. The tour itself was a lot of fun and involved crawling, climbing and squeezing through very tight spaces - it sounds and looks a bit scary at first, but is... More

Such a fun few hours caving with a small group of people. Our guide was excellent, had lots of facts and information and was very good at making everyone comfortable and suggesting alternate routes for those who needed/wanted it. Highly recommend this trip!

This was a great experience. If you are not ok with tight spaces I would not go. But otherwise this is well worth the trip.

Hello friend, if you're claustrophobic... don't worry, the caves are still big enough and absolutely stunning. Just stay here, listen and watch.

The caving was good. The guide spoke very fast sometimes and often was hard to understand the instructions. Not impressed they collect you from the meeting point but you need to find your own was back. Caving experience was enjoyable.

This was by far the best thing we did in Budapest! We were only in Budapest for 3 days but having read the reviews of this place we decided to book and we weren't disappointed! We were a group of 6 and none of us had been caving before. Several members of the group were pretty nervous about going so... More
