GET CLOSE TO THE BIG RIVER ♦ TAKE A GREAT ESCAPE FROM THE URBAN JUNGLE ♦ DISCOVER A HIDDEN PART OF BUDAPEST ♦ LAND ON A DESERTED ISLAND ♦ SEE THE CITY FROM A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE ♦ ENJOY A GREAT RIVER RECREATION!
Come and enjoy a great time on the water, discovering a special district of Budapest. The riverbank at Rómaifürdő is situated within an easy reach from the city centre. This is where the tour starts from, following a brief safety instruction. Led by an experienced steersman, you will paddle up an attractive branch of the river to a minor island of the Danube to take a rest in a wonderful landscape setting. The easy part will follow then, down the river, when you can go with the flow! Suitable also for beginners, it is a great fun for all who love active recreation!
Having the trip finished, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy a relaxed time at some of the open air bars along the riverbank.Main sights:
Danube riverscape, distant Budapest cityscape, pebbly beaches, unique riverside architecture, paddling fellows :-)Duration / length of the trip:
ca. 4-5 hours / 14km (9 miles)Level of physical difficulty:
medium, with some challenge
There is definitely need for some efforts and physical fitness to move the canoe upstream. Comfortably, this would take ca. 2.5-3 hours including breaks as necessary. The other way round will be an easy fun then.
