Overview
More
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.

The website mentioned the tour required some level of physical fitness which made me a bit hesitant to sign up initially. However, upon arriving, I quickly realized it was more so an "adventurous" kind of fitness than an athletic sort of one if that makes...More

We did the adventure caving and really enjoyed the experience. Definitely moves you out of your comfort zone a few times as you crawl through the caves, but a fun experience. The guide was excellent-attentive, informative and very funny. We recommend it.

We went in the afternoon in March. You wear overalls and engage in a fair bit of physical exertion so whether you go morning or afternoon you will get a bit hot. In December it will be super cold so I imagine it won't be a... More

Not really. You have stairs. Some of them are quite tights and not fitted for a larger person but nothing too claustrophobic. I am one myself.
