We paddle between the two beaches of Tihany, heading north where the Tihany Abbey towers above us. We are accompanied by the sight of the northern shore and the seemingly endless waters of the eastern basin. In addition to this beautiful panorama, you can discover the magnificent Limnology complex and the former castle of Archduke Joseph Habsburg at close quarters. Next to the harbour, in the bathing area, you can see the old Sports Hotel building. Afterwards, the Aszőfői-sarok opens up to us, where the Gödrösi open-air beach awaits us. In winter, the same route offers a number of icefalls, which you can only see from the beach.

Author’s recommendation

  • The time and difficulty of paddling depends largely on the weather conditions.In the event of sudden strong swells and winds, a short and easy trip can immediately turn into a long and difficult challenge.
  • After a rain shower in the early evening when the sky is in beautiful colours at sunset.
