  • The Turquoise Sea of Hungary: Lake Balaton Private Tour

    1. The Turquoise Sea of Hungary: Lake Balaton Private Tour

    Marvel at the beauty of the lake on a scenic, 10-minute ferry ride to Tihany peninsula. Upon arrival, experience the beauty of the peninsula up close. Thanks to the special attributes of its landscape, its geological idiosyncrasies, its diverse flora and fauna, it was the first designated protected area in Hungary. On its smaller hill, a church and a monastery were founded as early as nine centuries ago. The tour includes a visit to the most famous abbey of Hungary, as well as to Balatonfüred, the capital of the northern shore. Balatonfüred was always beloved by artists and writers and for good reason; the pretty promenade and beautiful villas and mansions will very likely steal your heart. While there, your guide will show you one or two totally off-the-beaten-track treasures of the region. At the end of the day, you will be driven back to your hotel in Budapest.

  • Lake Balaton: Paddle Board Tour of Tihany National Park

    2. Lake Balaton: Paddle Board Tour of Tihany National Park

    Paddle along Lake Balaton and experience Tihany National Park from the water. After you have checked in at the reception desk, you will receive your SUP board, a paddle, and a life-jacket if you need one. Your guide will help you choose your board, and will make sure it is suited to your level of experience, size and weight. Enjoy a peaceful tour, as you paddle slowly across the water and spot wildlife among the reeds. Feel free to chat to friends, or simply relax within the serene landscape. If it is warm enough, take a break and go for a swim, or just lie back on your board. Depending on the wind (usually there is none) and your level of experience, you will paddle approximately 3km before turning around and finishing your enjoyable tour at the same location you took off from.

What people are saying about Lake Balaton

Nice activity to be on the lake all by yourself to enjoy the views while having a drink. Next to that you can go swimming in the middle of the lake and also our very friendly captain had a sup board behind the boat where we could lie on. Also the transfer from and to the hotel was nice.

The skipper Marcell is really kind. We had a great time on his boat. He is well organized, is contacting you in advance. Everything went well and his English is very good. Can really recommend this tour.

Marcel's sailing trip was the best of our vacation at balaton

A big thank you to Marcel and his black pearl transfer, perfect fit sailing trip with a dream sunset the next time definitely PS: there is a professional LG Bert u Karl

It was fun

SUP is not difficult due to the good instruction of the guides. It's a lot of fun and you can paddle through the nature reserve in peace.

Marcell, nice guy. I sailed under his supervision. Was fun.
