Paris Catacombs Dark tour
With a lot of fun, guided by an urban explorer-veteran, you will dive deep inside the URBEX culture and feel on your skin how to become an explorer with real experience obtained in a safe and legal way. We will push you out of your comfort zone to make you return with new skills and knowledge (totally new!).
A veritable labyrinth in the heart of underground Paris, the Catacombs were installed in the tunnels of former quarries.
Known as the ‘World’s Largest Grave’, the late 17th century underground tunnels were put into use when all of Paris’ cemeteries started to overflow and get overcrowded. What were once mines stretching for miles underneath Paris, now holds an estimated six million dead bodies throughout its tunnels.
The Paris Catacombs are just south of the “Barrière d’Enfer” (A.K.A – Gates of Hell) and after descending into the tunnels you will experience the eerie-ness and mystery that is the Paris Catacombs.
All important equipment and services for your guaranteed comfortable exploration are included in the tour price, no extra fees!
- Rubber waders
- A pair of gloves
- A torch
- Transfer between objects.
For passing the underground route, you need to wear comfortable shoes and clothes, which you will be not upset about making a little bit dirty and wet – as you are going to the real underground tunnels. Be ready for adventures!
Pants must be with a belt or take a belt with you separately. The temperature underground is about +12 °, regardless of the temperature on the surface.
Don’t take massive backpacks and bags with you. Better not take bags at all or take a small one. It is not comfortable to move in tunnels with big bags full of massive camera gear.
