Full description
Join a full-day trip into the world-famous Danube Bend and Danube-Ipoly National Park. You will begin with a bike ride to the Nyugati Railway Station of Gustav Eiffel. Here you will jump on a train to the Danube Bend and Slovakian border.

You will then leave your bike in Szob at the Slovak border, before heading to a nearby National Park. In a canoe consisting of 2-3 people, you will then paddle out onto the Ipoly. Depending on the time of the year you will be able to dive into the river, and the canoe tour is about 12 kilometers in length and will take approximately 3 hours to complete. Although the gentle river flow will push you forward, you will also have to do some paddling.

After a short rest, you will ride along the scenic bicycle trail along the Danube. You will see charming villages along the way, such as Nagymaros and Zebegeny. Enjoy the breath-taking views of the ruins of Visegrad Castle, as well as inviting beaches. Enjoy some local snacks before returning to Budapest by train.
