Baradla Cave, Long Tour
Distance: 6.7 km (a little over 4 miles)
Duration: 4-5 hours
One of our most easily accessible and achievable adventure tours, visitors will traverse for about 4-5 hours along 6.7 km of the main branch of the Baradla Cave. The tour departs from the Aggtelek cave entrance and ticket office. Initially, the tour follows the route of the short tour through to the Concert Hall. From there, the path continues along the Rowing Lake to the dam. The adventure then truly begins! Along this undeveloped (no concrete walkways) and unlit section which sticks to the Red Lake Intermediate Tour route, you will be required at times to cross bridges and climb up and down stairways. Tour group members will carry their own lighting all the way through to the Red Lake exit. Highlights such as the unparalleled musical acoustics in the Concert Hall, and standing and gazing in the Hall of Giants, affords an unforgettable experience.
