Danube Bend Hiking and Kayaking Adventure

Danube Bend Hiking and Kayaking Adventure

Start your day in Budapest, where your guide will pick you up in an air-conditioned van and your adventure will begin. First, stop at a romantic little town in the Danube Bend called Nagymaros. Climb up to the scenic Julianus Lookout Tower, where you can admire the stunning panoramic view of the river. Look for traces of animals, learn about the tree species that inhabit the mountain, and ask your guide any questions you might have about Hungary. Enjoy a 5-mile hike in the calm and green forest before arriving at the riverside. After a short lesson about safety, technique, and rules on the river, jump into your canoe or kayak and glide down the lovely and calm Danube River. Admire the beautiful mountains and see the famous Visegrád Castle from the river. If the weather is nice, stop at a nice, sandy beach and take a refreshing dip in the water. Finish your day with a beer or a refreshing soft drink at a hippie bar on the river bank before returning to Budapest.

E-Mountain Bike Adventure in the Danube Bend

E-Mountain Bike Adventure in the Danube Bend

We start our day in the romantic village of the Danube bend called Nagymaros. After picking up the modern e-mountain bikes we start our ride on cycling lines to Zebegény, the little treasure box of the area. We cycle next to the river bank and admire the second longest river of Europe, the Danube. From Zebegény we start our ascent on calm forest trails to the Börzsöny mountains. If you are happy for some challenges and ready for a sweaty climb, we optionally visit the Julianus lookout tower, with amazing panorama to the river and the castle of Visegrád. We continue on a closed forest road and as for our first break we stop by at a meadow with a little animal park. If the buffet is open, you can have a refreshing drink and visit the animals in the park. From here we continue our ride on low traffic roads in the mountain among old beech and oak trees. After spending two hours on the mountain we start our descend to the river bank and on the way back to the starting point we stop by at a charming little pub for a refreshing beer or soft drink. We use e-bikes that are equipped with electronic engines that help you to paddle. This means that the uphills are much easier than with a normal bike and you can paddle more with the same effort as on a normal bike. The route is 47 kilometers, usually takes about 4 hours net plus the breaks.

We had a fantastic trip Our guide Gyuri picked us up from our hotel lobby, drove us around an hour to our destination. We both felt like we got to see the real hungry with a local , a truly authentic experience . He was extremely accommodating, messaging us the day before to let us know it was going to be hot so moved the climb to an earlier time so we would be in the brutal sun so long. He made sure we we went up an down the mountain in the shade , the kayaking was brilliant , stunning scenery , was supposed to be in 1 sharing but we asked for our own kayaks and again was no problem . Stoped at a great spot for lunch Then finished our kayaking and drove us back to our hotel . All in all a great day. It’s a medium difficulty hike we would say , bring plenty of water , it was September and very hot Thanks again Gyuri for the trip , an being so informative an accommodating , it transformed our holiday We rate the trip highly

It was awesome and so much fun!! Me and my brother have visited Budapest a couple times before, so it was very much needed to go outside the town and do something different that you don’t get to do very often. The hike fell on a hot day, so the kayaking was very much refreshing and chilling! Gyuri, our guide, was so nice, polite and shared valuable information about the place and everything related to the experience!:) I, personally, would have loved if we were part of a group (with other people) so that it would’ve added a whole other element of meeting people from around the world. But this is just preferable and not necessary obviously. We highly recommend doing this with no hesitation. Thank you so much Gyuri. We enjoyed every minute! :)

What a fantastic day out. Great cycle route and extremely enjoyable. Nice variety of terrains from mountain trails to flat smooth paths to country dirt tracks. All very achievable on the e-bikes and good fun. The hill climbs on the e-bikes are a breeze. Our guide, Atillas was amazing. He kept good pace for our abilities and made sure we were good. He showed us some amazing sights and is very knowledgeable. Best day of our Budapest holiday! Nice to get out of the city and see the beautiful country. Stunning views too.

The activity is amazing. I felt alive and healthy. The hike was amazing. Lots of trees, birds sounds, peaceful forest. Gyuri was such a lovely person. He guided me all tour, told me and showed me the daily life of animals in the forest, the types of trees and symbols we saw during hiking. The kayaking part was amazing. The view, the activity was worth every penny. Gyuri was always there to help, he is very fun to talk to and he supported me in all activity. This tour is worth the try.

The day was so amazing. The hike was beautiful and you could take it at your own pace. Kayaking was such a lovely experience with incredible views. We enjoyed the stop halfway on the kayaks to get an ice cream. The guide Gyuri was so friendly and made the whole day perfect. Would highly recommend!!!
