Spending a night in a mine hardly seems like a pleasant idea for many people. However the Sala Silvermine in Sweden is quite a remarkable place to visit, not to mention, to spend a night in their underground suite in such precious settings.

Sweden is country of such natural beauty it takes one’s breath away. Thousands of tourists come here to seek the peace and quiet of the pristine lakes, to admire the divine nature and impressive heritage of the Swedish nation. Those who are after a taste of the unusual should not miss out on the unique chance to visit the Sala Silvermine in Västmanland.
The mine is quite a spectacle on its own. Mining stopped decades ago and today, visitors are welcome to explore this underground maze accompanied by an experienced guide, who happily reveals its history.
The tour is sensational and reaches the depth of 155 meters underground. Those who fancy a bit of thrill in their sleep will enjoy spending the night in the local underground suite. It may not be luxurious, but immensely exciting. Guides will take the Sala guests to their ‘room’, provide them with refreshments and will return in the morning with breakfast and escort them back to daylight. Visitors need to keep in mind that the mine is very cold and the night temperature hardly ever exceeds 2°C, though the suite is warmed up to about 18 degrees.
Soon, the services on offer will expand. The mine is to become an unusual venue for parties, corporate events, weddings, concerts, even conferences. There are tours especially designed for children. Adventurers will rejoice over a possibility of cave diving, though be aware of the freezing conditions. In the surrounding area, there are many other attractions, among which elk and bird safaris take the lead.

  1. Now this does not sound very attractive to me - to stay there in the dark, shivering all over, 155 m under the ground? No thank you.

  2. This place should turn into the historic museum which is more interesting than hotel. It's interested for an unnatural man.
