Experience Szigetköz on water and on two wheels

Szigetköz Győr and Pannonhalma

The Szigetköz region invites you to take a trip. Discover this beautiful area on an adventurous water excursion or a super bike ride – the whole family will love it.

If you've been to Szigetköz before, you'll surely remember the rich flora and fauna of the floodplain forests, the many wild ducks, herons, egrets and even the busy beavers. If you're planning a trip to this beautiful region, don't hesitate to pack your bags and explore the Szigetköz for a fun and active family holiday.

Get in a boat

Flowing down from the Alps, the River Danube slows as it reaches the Szigetköz, having created islands, reefs, narrow channels and winding waterways over thousands of years, which are ideal for family white-water adventures. It’s not just for advanced paddlers: even the littlest champion can take to the water, as the Szigetköz is sure to have a guide and a route to suit the family’s skills. You can paddle through the floodplain backwaters and wild landscapes, but if you’re an experienced water tour enthusiast, you can also choose the 105 km, multi-day tour connecting Rajka and Győr.

Experiences on two wheels: cycling in the Szigetköz

If you’re exploring this beautiful region by bike, you’ll have plenty to choose from, as there are several cycling routes in the Szigetköz. Some of these pass through dams, low-traffic roads and lovely little villages. It’s worth taking it slowly and getting off the bike at times to get a better view of the rich flora and fauna. You can find out about these, as well as the formation and hydrography of the Szigetköz, on information boards in several places.


Are you more energetic and want to cover a longer distance? Then you can do the Rajka-Győr cycle path, over 50 km long, which is part of the EuroVelo 6 international cycle route. Cycle along the Danube in areas close to water and nature. And if you need a break, take a short detour to Lipót or Mosonmagyaróvár and take a swim in their thermal baths.
