Create an itinerary including Viking Cave
The old cave paintings of Viking Cave remain a mystery even today, as depictions of old European boats and Arabic iconography raise the questions of how and why they got there. Due to the population of nesting swallows in the cave, the locals now gather the valuable commodity of bird nests (made out of the swallows' saliva) from the walls. The abundance of scaffolding, people, and birds in the area mean that entrance into the cave is rarely permitted. Most likely, you’ll by passing by via boat and your guide will recount the history of the cave. Put Viking Cave and other Krabi Town attractions into our Krabi Town trip builder site, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Very nice cave. It is a pitty that it is not possible to enter. If you wear a mask you can swim in the middle of hundreds of fish (the distance between you and fish is about 30 centimeters). I saw almost 40 type of fish.
  • This place is nothing special. We went past on a boat tour and Took a quick photo. Really don't know why it's such an attraction?
