One Day Wonder Hike

The best panorama to the Danube bend and a canyon with waterfalls in one day? This is our one day wonder hiking tour where you get a lot of beauty from the Hungarian nature. You spend the day in the wonderful volcanic Visegradi hills where you can admire the memories of the old volcano. The big rocks and stones by the trail are all telling the story of the ancient eruption. The volcano is not active any more, so you are absolutely in safe. After the first climb you find yourself on a ridge that provides beautiful panorama to river Danube and the surrounding mountains. This place is called the Vadallo stones.

After a few hundred meters more climb you arrive to Predikaloszek, a summit that provides one of the most beautiful views of Hungary. You can go up to the lookout have a snack and enjoy the amazing scenery to the Danube bend.

After refilling your energy cells, a nice and long downhill is waiting for you in a wild and untouched valley. Before you start your climb in the canyon, you can refill your bottles and water reservoirs from a clear water spring that provides cold, refreshing natural water.

The Ram canyon is a great adventure both for elders and youngsters. Nice cool climate, great depth and waterfalls are waiting for you to climb them with the help of ladders and rails. After climbing up in the canyon we start our descent to the starting point with full of positive energy and experiences that you will never forget. The whole hike is 18 kms with an elevation gain of 800ms. Recommended for experienced hikers, but manageable for everyone who is healthy and in good fitness.

Our Hikers’ Reviews

Hiking with a stranger who becomes a friend is a gift. 
Gyuri stayed in email touch and was very responsive. That counts for a lot.
When we meet he was friendly and spoke fine English.
It turns out he is certified as a mountain guide. He came with snacks and extra water and was attentive and made me feel safe.
He’s traveled extensively and was a wonderful guide, full of information. And he took pictures of us that we love. 
We started with sprinkles and ended in sunshine.
It was the highlight of our visit in Budapest. Calla - USA

Firstly the communication is very good when booking the hike. The pickup and drop off at your accommodation is very convenient. Gyuri is an excellent guide who has a good knowledge of the forests and hills and you also learn a lot about the people and the country. You dictate the pace of the hike so you can go at your own pace and have rest breaks whenever you want. I highly recommend a hike with the company which I think would be good at any time of year.

I cant praise Gyuri enough, it was a really great day! From my initial enquiry, to which he replied straight away and answered all my questions, to door to door pick-up and drop-off (at bang on the time agreed), to giving gift badge, sharing snacks and water, to the beautiful professional standard photos he took of us and shared the same day, it was so professional and stress free! He was so easy to talk to and a chilled guy, happy to hike at our pace and also ensured we saw all the best bits – created the route himself and selected the best views and waterfalls to visit, no other standard hike contains all this and it also meant for most of the walk we were the only people around! I don’t just recommend, I insist you do this!

I was just prepared to do the usual Budapest city attractions in winter when I chanced upon ‘Outdoor Adventures Hungary’ and emailed Gyuri, the guide, who replied promptly for a half-day hike – ‘Panoramic Hike in Budapest’. Gyuri made thoughtful planning of the trail according to my pace to two look-out points of the valley out of Buda. We decided to include a chairlift ride as it was a beautiful day. I enjoyed the hike tremendously with Gyuri, who is passionate about nature and his work, and decided to do another hike – ‘One Day Wonder Hike’, instead of shopping on the following day. It was the highlight of my trip! We covered different terrains from foggy forests, breathtaking mountain views of blue sky and fog, gurgling streams to the final thrilling climb of the waterfall! Unbelievable! Gyuri is very knowledgeable and so sharp that he spotted the woodpecker and some deer during the hike! Words could hardly describe such a memorable hiking experience. I strongly recommend Gyuri for his professionalism and love for adventures with nature.
