Budapest: Standup Paddleboarding Tour

1. Budapest: Standup Paddleboarding Tour

Start with a short introduction to your equipment and how to paddle your board. Then you'll get out on the river to enjoy nature, the sun, the fresh air, and the calm waters of the Danube River.  On this tour, you will be going on a sunset trip on your stand up paddle (SUP) board from Lupa Island all the way to Romai. You will be able to see some of the city’s hidden parts from the water and enjoy the sound of nature as you float by. This is also the perfect time to meet new people. The water is clean and the temperature is around 20 degrees Celsius during summer, so during the tour, it’s also possible to go for a short swim if you wish.

Lake Balaton: Paddle Board Tour of Tihany National Park

2. Lake Balaton: Paddle Board Tour of Tihany National Park

Paddle along Lake Balaton and experience Tihany National Park from the water. After you have checked in at the reception desk, you will receive your SUP board, a paddle, and a life-jacket if you need one. Your guide will help you choose your board, and will make sure it is suited to your level of experience, size and weight. Enjoy a peaceful tour, as you paddle slowly across the water and spot wildlife among the reeds. Feel free to chat to friends, or simply relax within the serene landscape. If it is warm enough, take a break and go for a swim, or just lie back on your board. Depending on the wind (usually there is none) and your level of experience, you will paddle approximately 3km before turning around and finishing your enjoyable tour at the same location you took off from.

Budapest: Danube River Rafting Experience and Drink

4. Budapest: Danube River Rafting Experience and Drink

The extraordinary sightseeing experience on river Danube! Spend an unforgettable afternoon on the Danube river with sightseeing from a super stable raft boat. See the city from a special point of view, without the crowdedness of the most popular places. We start our ride from the Northern section of Budapest and as we paddle down along the twist of the river, we pass by all the main attractions, which are perfectly visible from the river. Among other notable buildings, you will see the magnificent Parliament, paddle under all the historical bridges, admire the ridges of the Buda hills as they rise above the city. At the end of our trip we arrive at an intimate bar on the river bank, surrounded by a natural reserve and calm waters. You are our guest for a refreshing beer or a soft drink at the bar! This is a fully guided tour so I will tell stories about the sights and their role in the history of Budapest. Before we set sail I teach you the basics of paddling and how to behave on the river. I provide safety vests and dry bags in which you can carry your most important belongings. The boat we use is made for white water adventures, so super stable and almost impossible to tip over. The trip includes the drive from the meeting point to the starting point of the adventure. From the finish point you can easily get back to the city center either by public transport or by taxi.

Paddle boarding was so much fun, we had never done it before but we got used to it very quickly. It was lovely to see Budapest from the river. The guides were so friendly and took lots of photos of us. The only thing we would change is we would have liked a bit more info before the activity. For example we didn’t know we could bring our things on board in a dry bag, if we did we would have brought water and something to eat. But it was a amazing trip.

We all loved the SUP tour on the Danube.. really beyond expectations!! It was a special experience to paddle right through beautiful Budapest past the parliament building. the instructor was friendly and helpful.. as far as we are concerned, the tour is definitely recommended.

Amazing experience in itself!! This is so good honestly. So much fun. Great tour guide. Only thing that let it down was the full address that it gave you wasn’t the correct place so we ended up walking a lot! However if you click the link - the location is correct

Definitely best to do on a warmer day, and we didn’t return to the start so had to take our bags in wet bags they provided. It was good fun but quite hard to stand up! Provides lovely views of budapest while still having fun.

It was really fun, the guidors always made sure the weren't any people left behind alone for those that were struggling and they took pictures of us which was great since our phones were on the waterproof bags.
