Hungary

From £625 P/P

Get to know the most-famous holiday destination in Hungary, Lake Balaton. This is the Europe’s largest natural freshwater lake and covers a surface of 600 square km and the length is around 210km long. The Southern lakeside is famous for beaches with shallow waters perfect for swimming with a backdrop of spectacular views. One of the true highlights of the southern side of the lake is the amazing view of the sunset you get. The northern side is characterised by hills and is considered the most beautiful regions due to its meadows, forests, and ravines. Both red and white wines are produced in the surrounding vineyards which are very popular. Just a 7km cycle away from the lake is Hévíz, a place known to help cure people during the Roman Empire. During May and June is a very special time to cycle through here, you can witness fruit trees growing and blossoming. During September and October, the turn into Autumn provides gorgeous colours.
