Lake Balaton: Paddle Board Tour of Tihany National Park

1. 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. 

Tihany: Stand Up Paddleboarding Course at Lake Balaton

2. Tihany: Stand Up Paddleboarding Course at Lake Balaton

You will get a quick overview about different boards and paddles and what equipment is best for you. Choosing the right size SUP board and paddle is essential. Before you hit the water, you will learn the first steps on a simulator. From starting in a kneeling position, getting up and finding the right stance and position on your board, to the correct handling of your paddle. After practising those things on the beach you will learn how to carry and launch your SUP. The rest of the time you will practise those learned things on your board with your instructor assisting you. After an hour with the instructor, you are ready to paddle on by yourself into the National Park right next to our SUP centre. The program consists of one hour lessons with instructor and one hour of independent paddling.

The Turquoise Sea of Hungary: Lake Balaton Private Tour

3. 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.

It's a little uncomfortable, but it is an experience that should be done. The team is great and helps you. It's just a lot of fun. Gladly again.!!

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.

Nice to do with a large group (8 people)! And with the water temperature also easy to maintain

A lovely day out with a very nice guy who knew his stuff.
