✰ Program details✰
We meet at Ôtvenhatosok tere (56-osok tere), close to the City park, also known as the Heroes’ squares car park. Once we arrive to the lovely small town of Mátrafüred we start our hike uphill, towards the highest peak of Hungary where stunning views will welcome us. The scenery will deliver different type of woods and rocks, an abandoned house.Once on the top, we soak in the beauty offered and take a well-deserved break. We continue with the descend towards Mátraháza, from there back to màtrafüed - passing a lovely shrine hidden away in the forest – finally we arrive to the Feketerigó Restaurant in Mátrafüred. Once fed and happy, we take the bus back home to Budapest.
All welcome, we look forward to being together and go hiking with you!
Feel free to ask any questions.
