Hungary

Know more about the Seatravel difference

Welcome to Hungary

Welcome to Hungary; the country, which for many is the equivalent of heavy casseroles seasoned with peppers and the capital's beautiful parliament building. Hungary is in many ways completely its own, but also a hidden paradise. And now, as something new, you can experience Hungary from the riverfront - with a riverboat holiday booked through Seatravel.

Hungary's waterways are quiet and tranquil, completely free from locks, and the surrounding landscapes are natural and unspoilt - perfect for fishermen, nature and bird lovers, and enthusiasts for everything you can do to enjoy life outdoors.

In Hungary, boat trips are offered in the following two areas; Kisköre on the Tisza River and Tokaj on the Bodrog River. With two bases in the area, you are met by a big selection of trip opportunities.

Bodrog/Tisza

Bodrog/Tisza

The base in Kisköre You will find the base in Kisköre, beautifully located in Hortobágy National Park, which provides the setting for a nature experience out of the ordinary. In late May and early June, you can experience one of the most fascinating natural phenomena in Europe. When millions of circular mayflies create huge clouds over the river, they mate and then die, in a matter of hours. The event is also called "The bloom of the Tisza". The area has no large cities, but small and charming villages. Moreover, there is an abundance of pretty, natural scenery and an interesting wildlife. Here you will also experience the Puszta, the vast grassland found around Lake Tisza and the eastern parts of Hungary. Herds of buffaloes, oxen and wild horses all live together in the area. The animals are guarded by the Hungarian cowboys, "csikos", in their traditional costume. On a 1-week boat rental based in Kisköre, you can reach the lake Tisza to Tiszalök and return to the base in Kisköre.   HighlightsHortobágy National Park The 'Puszta' - a UNESCO world heritage site Sandy beaches and good fishing spots Waterskiing, kayaking, stand up padling at Abádszalok resort and spa resort Tiszafüred Freshwater aquarium in Poroszló The thermal baths in Tiszaújváros The neo-Gothic castle Andrássy  The base in Tokaj The area's second base, the Tokaj base, is located in northern Hungary, near the Slovak border. The Tokaj region is protected by UNESCO and so it has made its mark worldwide for its good wines. And then the area is nasty to the history nerd. Onboard the boat you’ll pass through areas of vineyards located at the foot of the Zemplén mountains and old forest-covered volcanoes. The vines from this region have made the region known in the field of winemaking. Are you a family with kids, the zipline and bobsleigh in Zemplén Kalandpark is a must. In the upper Tisza you can take a swim in the river - a unique experience when on a riverboat. On a 1-week boat rental starting in Tokaj you can reach Sátoraljaújhely and Dombrád before turning around and sailing back to the base in Tokaj. In Sárospatak you can see the end of the Rákócki castle from the Renaissance.   HighligtsWhite vines from Rákóczi The World Heritage Wine Museum in Tokaj Migratory birds and excellent Tojak wines in Bodrogkeresztúr  Zemplén Kalandpark in Sátoraljaújhely The sandy beach in Dombrád Hiking trips in the wetlands of Tiszalök
