It might still raining a bit outside, but we all know that the real summer is only weeks if not days away! To enjoy the full beauty of the blossoming early summer, we invite you to Tihany, the capital of lavender and the very best of all Balaton beaches, Sajkod!
Tihany is best known for its thousand-years old monastery, diverse landscape dotted with tiny lakes and volcanic domes, and of course the famous lavender fields and all the goods made from it.
At the end of the hike we are also visiting the hidden gem of the Tihany penninsula, the Sajkod beach known for its crystal clear water and eye-pleasing natural environment!
