Full day tour to Nemocón salt mine!
Visit the coolest active salt mine, and live a unique experience deep in the salty mountains of Nemocón!
Join us on this full day trip to discover the legends behind an amazing salt mine! Once the town where many indigenous people lived, now Nemocon holds the story about a hidden treasure that’s connected to the prophecy of the arrival of the Spaniards.
As part of the experience, you’ll see a small museum full of interesting information regarding the creation of the salt mine and the importance of the land we’ll be visiting. Then, the walk inside the mine will take about an hour, where you’ll see the biggest salt heart of the world, the coolest water mirrors, as well as the set of the movie “The 33”, reminding us how risky the miner's work is.
