Fantastic caving tour under Budapest!

Budapest, the capital of Hungary is famous for its hot springs all over the world. Many people visit Hungary’s famous thermal baths, but only a few are aware of the fact that hot water rushing up from deep underground has created something else too. The capital is built on a limestone basis, in which the heated water formed a huge cave system, thought to be more than 120 km long. The spas and caves of Budapest are planned to be a declared part of the UNESCO World Heritage.

Among the numerous caves of Budapest only two can be visited without previous caving experience. The museum-like Szemlő-hegyi cave has a concrete path passable even by wheelchair, and it is lit by arfificial light. There is a 35-minutes long guided tour in the cave. The other cave is the 30.1 km long Pál-völgyi cave system – the longest in Hungary - located in the Duna-Ipoly National Park. The cave is a real multi-level labyrinth system with most of its chambers under the residental districts of Budapest.

2,5–3 hour long crawling and climbing in the longest cave of Hungary, the Pál-völgyi cave system:

This amazing labyrinth system is situated mostly under the elegant residences of Budapest. The tours lead on unbuilt, natural parts of the cave, with the supervision of professional caving guides. All the necessary equipment - overall, helmet, light - is provided. You can change your clothes in changerooms, found at the cave entrance. Though one has to crawl, climb, scramble or creep many times during the tour, no previous experience in caving is needed.

The tour can be done at any date, but in this case the minimum number of participant is 5 persons, and the tour should be booked five days earlier. Children under 14 years need an approval from their parent to participate on the tour if the parent is not present at the tour. The form can be downloaded from here: parental approval form
