Balaton is known as one of the main touristic hotspots in Hungary. Surrounding the lake are wineries, beaches, and amazing area to hike & explore.
As an expat or student it can be tough to meet when you move to Budapest. A day hiking in budapest with 50+ other people is a great way to make new friends!
After building up some serious anticipation for our hike to the highest point of Hungary, we finally got to go hiking in Mátra on May 6th.
Usually before the big event we do a ‘trial hike’, which helps us not to get lost in the forest with 100+ people and also to evaluate the routes whether they are safe enough or we have to re-organise the hike a bit.
