During the tour, we are accompanied by the endless turquoise blue, angry green and most of all a thousand colours of Lake Balaton. From the other side, you can admire the mountains surrounding the eastern basin from countless angles. The Tihanyi Abbey towers above us, and between Füred and Csopak the hills follow us in parallel, followed by the Somlyó Hill Lookout in Alsóörs. From Almádi you will have a good view of the old Horthy Lookout, then at the foot of the Castle and the Megye Hill we turn south-eastwards in the Fűzfői Bay, from where we can admire the loess walls of the high coast from the water. Along the way, we will see numerous reed beds and small secluded spots with a wealth of wildlife. The experience is guaranteed even if you only want to do one section, as the real Lake Balaton is far away from the noise of the beaches. The tours can be done not only by kayak, but also by SUP. At the end of the tour series, you will be able to appreciate the beauty of Lake Balaton from a different perspective. A much quieter, more measured and closer to nature perspective.

Author’s recommendation

The paddling time and difficulty of the sections will depend largely on the weather conditions.In the event of sudden strong swells and winds, a short and easy trip can instantly turn into a long and difficult challenge.
