more Info

info Participating in a Hoelloch tour means immersing yourself in to another world:

We follow the immense main corridor up to the huge hall. From there we ascend to "Dombiwak" where we stop for a break. After that we take a look at "Wasserdom" – a 30 meter high underground waterfall and move further along "Domgang" reaching "Schlange" (snake) – another Hoelloch highlight – a 300 meter natural slide that is immense fun! From there we enter in to "Aeolsgang" and "Himmelsgang (Heaven's Corridor) where we will see the unique "Rueebli" (literally "little carrot"), a bright orange stalactite, yet another tour highlight.

These demanding tours are led by professional, SSH (Schweizerische Schule Hoehlenbefahrungen Hoelloch) certified cave guides only. SSH, a cave guide and explorer training center, equips participants in demanding courses for their future leadership role as guides.

Please note: do not enter the cave with your travel clothes. Travel clothes and other items such as kit bags, toiletries, handbags, etc. are to left in cars or at the Hoelloch restaurant. At the restaurant there are changing rooms available. If you do not want to hire cave explorer protective overalls, then please ensure that you have clothes that are robust enough to endure wear & tear. Ideal are: thermo vest, thin polo neck jumper, overalls or old jeans / trousers, pullover / thermal fleece jacket, thick socks. Not suitable are track suits, rain shields, etc.
