With more than 200 explored kilometers in length, the Hölloch is one of the world’s largest cave systems.
Discover how the water has carved its way relentlessly through nooks and crannies over close to a million years to finally create the cave we explore today on our various tours.
For people who fear that claustrophobia might be a problem we can reassure to some extend: There are a number of narrow spots, however, for people who fear comfortable travelling in a normal 4 person lift, there shouldn't be any anxiety issues. For the small percentage of people with stronger claustrophobia we refer to our guided short trips.
Fear of heights: You will be adequately secured in all those areas that are a little more exposed. Your guide will also be able to help and assist.
The temperature is a constant 6 degrees Celsius and the humidity is close to 100 %.

Our motto is simply "safety first"! We offer numerous - also adventurous - programmes, but we are not adventurers. This has been the case for the last 35 years of our outdoor activities and will remain so in the future. Trekking Team was the first outdoor company with the "Safety in adventures" certification.
We have set high standards for the quality of our programmes, the training of our guides and especially for safety aspects. The top management - all active guides and instructors - is directly responsible for these central areas. The cave guides are trained at the Swiss School of Caving Hölloch (SSH).
The company's safety policy is based on the following principles and procedures:
- The safety of guests and employees is a top priority. It has priority over economic considerations. To prevent accidents during adventure and outdoor activities, everything must be done that is necessary according to experience, feasible according to the state of the art and appropriate to the given conditions.
- Safe procedures for all adventure and outdoor activities are ensured through the application of an operational safety concept. With the help of this concept, any inadequacies are systematically identified and improved, thus keeping the safety level constantly high.
- Accident prevention and protection of the health of guests and employees are essential to maintain and strengthen competitiveness.
- We undertake to comply with all generally recognised national and international standards concerning the practice of adventure and outdoor activities as well as the relevant directives of the competent authorities.
- We recognise the safety policy and the protection goals of the "safety in adventures" foundation as the basis for safety planning.
- The processes and activities of our adventure and outdoor activities and the infrastructure and support work operated for them are continuously analysed (process analysis).
- For all processes and activities of our activities and at all implementation locations, the relevant influencing factors and critical control points (CCP) are clarified with regard to safety (risk analysis).
- For all identified critical control points, measures (e.g. controls, fixed procedures to be followed, reserved decisions, etc.) are defined that are suitable for eliminating hazards that exist at this point and minimising risks that arise at this point due to critical influencing factors.
Despite competent and safe implementation of the activities, accidents cannot be completely ruled out. The organiser cannot accept any liability for this; participation is at the participant's own risk. Participants must have sufficient health and accident insurance themselves. For Hölloch expeditions we also recommend membership of a recognised Swiss rescue organisation (e.g. REGA) or the conclusion of special rescue insurance.
