The trip down into the mine will be made mainly on stairs, it is therefore of utmost importance that all visitors be able to walk unassisted all the way. It is recommended to wear outdoor shoes and warm clothing as the temperature in the mine is consistently 5 degrees. You will be equipped with helmets and capes for the duration of the tour but we do not provide visitors with wellingtons. All visits underground occur in the presence of a guide.

Book desired day online and then contact Falun Mine via telephone about desired time and language for the tour. Make sure to confirm desired time and language at the latest 3 days before the tour for a guaranteed ticket. Booking at a later time can result in there being fewer times from which to choose. Tours in Swedish and English are available at all times. Tours in German; only during the summer.
