Budapest: Hiking Tour in the Buda Hills

1. Budapest: Hiking Tour in the Buda Hills

Get off the beaten path and relax in nature on a hiking tour of the Buda Hills. Meet your guide in front of Széll Kálmán tér metro station. After taking public transport from the meeting point, the hike starts on the slopes of Normafa, where you’ll get the first amazing views of Budapest from above.  Follow trails through the woods and ascend gradually through the hills to the famous viewpoint, the Elizabeth Lookout Tower. Admire the splendid views, then continue to a small cave that is safe to explore. After passing an abandoned limestone quarry, you’ll reach the extraordinary Tündér-szikla (Fairy-rock). Descend the hills and take a bus back to the city, where your tour will end.

An absolute joy from beginning to end. Definitely the highlight of our Budapest trip. Not only was the hike full of breathtaking panoramic views but also fascinating historic points of interest. Although the hike and its surroundings were stunning, what really made the walk was the knowledge and enthusiasm of Laszlo. Laszlo had vast knowledge of the natural area, and would interject with short interesting anecdotes and facts. We also stopped for lunch, which was a delight itself, and carried on up to several panoramic viewing towers. Lazslo also took some great photos of us throughout the hike, which he emailed to us later that evening. If you only have a few days to spend in Budapest, make sure you book a day with Laszlo. You will not regret it.

My guide provided more than just a hike in the hills, he dipped into history, flora and fauna with a passion for being out in the hills that is impossible to fake. I would recommend this hike or any of his others available to anyone who enjoys being outdoors.

Excellent tour with lots of breathtaking panoramic views! Laszlo was very enthusiastic and has real passion… highly recommend to book this tour whilst visiting Budapest.

It was a very nice, informative, and fun experience. Let's do this again. Thanks

Great excursion, very nice views I was really excited about it.
