About Caving Under Budapest
Take a trip into the magical world of caves! Explore the longest cave of Hungary in its unperturbed state! You’ll enter a labyrinthine world of natural corridors and chambers. During the 2.5-3 hrs long tour no pavement or floodlight helps your way, only your headlamp will give some light, and you will often have to climb across rocks and crawl through narrow passages. Be ready for the adventure! You can join us without prior experience of caving. Trained guides lead the tours, and you'll be supplied with the necessary equipment (overalls, helmets, and lights). Background information on the area: Budapest is the capital of the caves. More than 200 caves are known under the residential Buda side of the town. The caves in the limestone mountains of Budapest were created by hot water rushing up from deep underground - the same thermal springs that supply our famous spas. The area is on the tentative list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

We had a really good time with our group and guide Silas! Some passages were slightly outside my comfort zone, but absolutely doable nonetheless. Definitely recommended and one of the absolute highlights of our stay in Budapest

An amazing and insightful activity in Budapest that is an absolute must do! 2.5-3 hours is correct and I would say a reasonable level of fitness is needed as we climbed, crawled and pushed ourselves through smaller and smaller holes and gaps throughout the labyrinth of caves. Our guide was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable, sharing geological information about the cave systems as well as random facts and some of Hungary’s history along the way. As a group of 9, we bonded quickly and communication was needed as we described the next stage to the person behind us. All in all, I would highly recommend this activity and would very happily do it again. Thank you!

We visited Budapest last week and this was BY FAR the most amazing experience we had. We went as a couple and were placed in a group with 5 more people. We ended up getting to know each other and feeling totally comfortable being silly with each other. Our tour guide Szilard was PHENOMENAL, can’t recommend him enough. Not only was he was extremely funny and laid back but as a geologist he was able to answer every single one of our questions. He also made us feel 100% safe right away. Personally, I found this activity very very outside my comfort zone and thought I would start panicking 5 minutes in the cave. However, through Szilard’s skillful guidance I quickly felt like home and didn’t realize that 3 hours went by!! Totally recommended ESPECIALLY for those who want to overcome their fears, there is no concern over safety, these guys are super professional and know their stuff.

I tried adventure caving around a year ago and it was unforgettable! Once it opens after the pandemic, I would sincerely recommend it as a team building adventure! I will never forget how my head with a helmet got stuck in a narrow section between the rocks and a teammate helped me out. A lot of fun and adrenaline, but you must not suffer from claustrophobia. Price of this tour is around 30 euros. Getting to Palvolgyi cave from the Parliament building takes around 40 min and costs 3 euros. Worth every penny!
