This adventurous and exciting day expedition is suitable especially – but of course not only – for guests who already know the cave area of the expeditions “Wasserdom” / “Glitzertor” or “Himmelsgang”, and who would like to explore other, more unknown regions of the Hoelloch.
On this tour, you will first follow the giant main passage, and then take the shortcut into the doline passage just before the giant hall. There you will dive into the underworld of the Styx and cross this underground lake by boat.
In the further course you will visit areas like Innominata, Schrattengang and Polypgang, you will also pass the explorer bivouac B1. Along the huge Titanengang, past the Märchenstollen you will reach the Tuffrosensee and the Engelsburg. In short – an unforgettable tour with many fascinating impressions!

Requirements: This is a physically demanding tour; however, no special skills are required. This excursion into the interior of the cave is similar to a mountain tour in pathless terrain. Exposed places are secured with ropes, ladders, bridges, etc.
Bring along: Warm socks; thermal underwear (long sleeves & underpants) or turtle neck jumper and leggings as a base layer. Top layer: warm and not the newest wear & tear proof jumpers, jackets and pants. Some clothes in reserve for your journey home since your cave clothes might be a bit dirty after the tour. (Alternatively you can rent a cave overall for CHF 25.00 per person). If available, bring your knee pads.
Robust backpack with lunch and drink in a plastic- or metal bottle (water can be refilled inside the Hölloch cave) as well as a fleece jacket to protect yourself from getting cold during the breaks. Optional: nuts and raisins or energy bars.
* Please note – the temperature in the cave is constantly 6°C, the air humidity at almost 100%. As long as we’re on the move, everyone should feel warm enough. However if you easily get cold, maybe wear a mid-layer over your thermals.
