Full description
Get off the beaten path and relax in nature on a hiking tour of the Buda Hills. Meet your guide in front of Széll Kálmán tér metro station. After taking public transport from the meeting point, the hike starts on the slopes of Normafa, where you’ll get the first amazing views of Budapest from above.  Follow trails through the woods and ascend gradually through the hills to the famous viewpoint, the Elizabeth Lookout Tower. Admire the splendid views, then continue to a small cave that is safe to explore. After passing an abandoned limestone quarry, you’ll reach the extraordinary Tündér-szikla (fairy cliff). Descend the hills and take a bus back to the city, where your tour will end.

An absolute joy from beginning to end. Definitely the highlight of our Budapest trip. Not only was the hike full of breathtaking panoramic views but also fascinating historic points of interest. Although the hike and its surroundings were stunning, what really made the walk was the knowledge and enthusiasm of Laszlo. Laszlo had vast knowledge of the natural area, and would interject with short interesting anecdotes and facts. We also stopped for lunch, which was a delight itself, and carried on up to several panoramic viewing towers. Lazslo also took some great photos of us throughout the hike, which he emailed to us later that evening. If you only have a few days to spend in Budapest, make sure you book a day with Laszlo. You will not regret it.

A lovely half day hike in the Buda hills with the very knowledgable Lazlo. A right test of your fitness as you traverse across different types of terrain to make it to the highest point of Buda - and all of the wonderful views that come with it. Make sure you have your walking shoes on as it gets quite steep! Apple strudel (which was delicious) and transport tickets provided as part of the tour. Definitely recommended!
