Full description

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. Stop to enjoy a local hamburger or vegetarian lunch before setting out on the rest of your adventure. 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.

The perfect day-trip. The guide, Gyuri, is very nice and easy to talk to, as well as knowledgeable about Budapest. The mix between hiking and paddling worked nicely, and the trip was beautiful, well-balanced and fun. We cannot recommend this enough. Gyuri picked us up and dropped us off at the hotel, and had everything well arranged for the day. Furthermore, he took really nice pictures of us throughout the trip at no extra charge.
