The three hour journey 650 feet below is called the Salt Safari. This experience separates itself from the other underground attractions STRATACA currently offers.
A limited group of hikers will trek miles of tunnels through the a rugged and unimproved area of the mine. Participants will discover natural formations of geological history only a select few have seen – until now.
“Hiking underground in the raw mine is awesome and exciting, and now, we can finally share this opportunity with other adventure-loving adults,” said Linda Schmitt and Gayle Ferrell of STRATACA. “Salt Safari is the ultimate, authentic Salt Mine expedition and we know participants will love it as much as we do. Be ready for an amazing experience that can't be found anywhere else!”
Participants must be at least 13 years of age; 17 and under must be accompanied by someone who is 25 or older. Maximum two teenagers per adult.
Salt Safari will be offered on select days. Advanced reservations for the hike will be required and is separate from Strataca’s general admission prices.
Attire: Wear long pants and good walking or hiking shoes and we will provide the rest.
The fine print: You must be fit enough to hike for up to 3 hours in the dark with limited light on uneven surfaces that include loose materials and tripping hazards (aka salt rocks). Additional requirements posted on our website. Restrooms not available for about 2 hours. Select days only.
