If you would want to escape from the everyday hustle of the city and you would avoid crowded beaches, we have an offer for you!
What’s better than a good hike under the canopy of fabular trees in one of the most beautiful forests in Hungary. Well, let me boost you a bit more.
Börzsöny is in the middle of the country, above the Danube Bend with several high peaks and amazing wildlife.
On a sunny day, you can have a 360° panorama from Visegrád to Slovakia. To add some Hungarian feeling, we will get there by Forest Railway which is quite like the Children’s Railway at Hűvösvölgy, and we will have lunch in our kind of “Hütte” .
What can you expect?
x Distance: 20 km
x Duration: 6,5 hours
x Elevation gain: 800 m
x 360° panorama on the top
x Forest Railway to both directions
x typical Hungarian cuisine
x decent hiking adventure

x The hike distance is 20 km, which might sound frightening but someone who regularly does sports can easily manage it
x However, we will hike in the forest we will go in the middle of the summer so probably it will be HOT, bring some sun cream and hats
x We will have lunch around 13h and arrive back home late so bring some food or sandwiches if you have bigger hunger
x We very welcome any dogs on our trail but keep in mind that it has an extra cost for the railways which is not included in the price!
Get to know your hike leader, Greg
Hello guys, I am a sports lover, especially football and tennis which I pursue since childhood, but apart from these, I love hiking and currently I am doing KÉK Túra in multiple-day parts. I come from a sporty and quiet active family, so I have explored some of Hungary’s best hiking places and actually, this one is my favourite! I graduated in Tourism and Hospitality at Corvinus and am doing my Masters there.
Can’t wait to see you all!
