Full description
Embark on a full-day, guided hike just outside of Budapest through the Danube Bend, including hotel pickup and drop-off via an air conditioned and comfortable van. A memorable day for lovers of nature and the outdoors awaits. Spend the day in the volcanic Visegradi Hills, where the memory of the old volcano still pervades. The volcano is no longer active, so there remains no danger. The starting point of the hike is at a tiny, romantic village on the coast of the Danube, called Dömös. Begin with the steepest climb of the day while you're still feeling fresh. After the climb, you'll find yourself on a ridge that offers beautiful panoramic views over the river and surrounding mountains. As you look around, check out the huge volcanic rocks that were left behind after the ancient eruption. After a few hundred yards more, climb to Predikaloszek, the summit with some of the best views in Hungary. This place is very famous among locals and visited the whole year through by nature-lovers. Stop for a snack at the lookout and take in the amazing scenery. After refueling, a nice and long downhill trek is waiting for you through a wild and untouched valley. During the descent, observe the power of water; see how it created ravines in the soil of the forest. Before starting your climb in the canyon, refill your bottles with clear spring water from water reservoirs. The Ram Canyon is a great adventure for all ages, boasting a nice cool climate, great depth, and waterfalls to climb with the help of ladders and rails. Head back toward the starting point filled with positive energy and unforgettable experiences. The whole hike is just over 11 miles; the trip is recommended for experienced hikes, but manageable for anyone who is in good physical condition.

    This was a wonderful hike through the rolling hills in the north of Hungary. Our guide Gyuri was extremely knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of Hungary. I did this tour with my mom and we both really enjoyed it. Make sure to bring lots of water and food, as this was definitely a great workout. The views are amazing, you cannot really get them any other way other then to trek it up the mountains yourself. Pick up and drop off were easy. Would highly recommend. Also he took GREAT pictures!!!

    I had an amazing experience on the hike. Gyuri is a fabulous guide, encouraging without pushing. The hike is challenging at times but doable. I enjoyed it a lot. Advice- good shoes, bug spray. You will be in the wilderness for the whole day with no facilities but the nature. I highly recommend it for people in decent physical shape. Gyuri was raking photos throughout the hike so yiu can keep your phones inside the backpack. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

    We had a great time on the Danube Bend hike. This is a really interesting walk through varying terrain where you can see beautiful views, walk through a peaceful forest, through a gorge and even up some waterfalls! Gyuri is the most excellent guide; he is punctual, knowledgeable and safe and he knows lots of interesting things about the nature and geology of the area and he is just a really nice guy to chat to as we walked. He even took photos for us on the way round and shared them with us afterwards, which is such a lovely memento. I would recommend that you are moderately fit and ok to walk on uneven and very steep ground as it was challenging in places, but that is what made it even more enjoyable and we had a great sense of achievement afterwards. It was the best day of our whole vacation, I cannot recommend this trip highly enough.
