About the off-road tour
We will be visiting the best and most instagrammable viewpoints of Lake Balaton on the north and south side as well, where you could see the whole Hungarian Sea and take unforgetable pictures.
Also, you are going to have a chance to cross Lake Balaton, middle Europe’s largest lake with the one and only ferry line available for the public, and visit Tihany, which is probalby the most picturesque small town in Hungary.
On top of this, you will travel through the area by my jeep with the top off sometimes on dirt roads, to reach those hidden places only known by locals. It’s going to be a real off-road experience!
