The joy of riding a bike is not just for kids, it's equally as fun as an adult and a great exercise to boot, or (for the more daring) even a truly extreme sports experience. Discover the country on two wheels.
It’s no surprise that one of the country’s sportiest areas is the region around Lake Velence, where you’ll find everything you need for active recreation: an amazing environment and countless opportunities for sports. Hop on your bike and ride around the country’s third-largest natural lake.
Mountain biking is not for beginners: the height differences, elevations and the natural terrain demand not only a special type of bicycle, but also a very specific skillset and good physical condition.
The best thing about cycling trips is that they can be completely tailored to your needs. It’s up to you what distance to conquer each day, how many days the trip should last, where to stop and rest and what attractions to visit.
Lake Tisza, Hungary’s second biggest lake, was created as an artificial reservoir, however, nature soon claimed it as its own. It’s not only the pristine natural environment that deserves cycling around when you visit.
Austria and Hungary share the cycle path around Lake Fertő. Depending on the exact route, the distance varies between 115 and 135 kilometres: keen cyclists can finish it in a day, but it’s much more fun to split the distance over a couple of days or even a long weekend, allowing you to enjoy the historical monuments, the peace of nature and bathing – and of course, the local delicacies.
204.44 kilometres of cycling, combined with all the beauty Lake Balaton has to offer – guaranteed for those willing to ride around the biggest lake in Hungary. No matter whether you want to test your performance and speed or you think of it as a casual holiday activity, you won’t be disappointed.
