The 30-kilometre-long tour around Lake Velence is enjoyable for everyone – beginners, re-starters and veteran riders alike. It’s a popular destination among cyclists for a reason: the route is mostly flat and, depending on how often you stop, is easily manageable within a few hours. While you’re cycling, you can enjoy the beauty of the lake’s rich flora and fauna – even the settlements on the shore of the lake are full of surprises, which makes it worth spending a whole day here. If you arrive without your own bike, you can rent one in the bigger towns around the lake, such as Velence, Agárd or Gárdony. The cycle path runs along the shore, with a slight incline just before Pákozd.
One of the country’s most beautiful public beaches awaits you in Velence
Especially in the summer, it is a good idea to take a break at the sandy beach of the promenade in Velence, where you can dip your toes into the lake water, which is rich in sodium and magnesium, and then cool off under the beach umbrellas. If the crowds are too much for you, there’s a retro public beach nearby.
