Guided tours for groups with an experienced guide
Depending on which region of the operational area of the Balaton Uplands National Park Directorate you would like to visit, we provide guided bus or hiking nature tours for our guests, interpreting for them the natural and cultural heritage of the area. The guided tours are to be booked in advance (at least two weeks before the date of the tour) and are provided for a guidance fee. We offer several itineraries on the Tihany Peninsula, Pécsely Basin, Káli Basin, Tapolca Basin, Keszthely Hills, Kis-Balaton, and the Magas-bakony Landscape Protection Area, the Somló Landscape Protection Area and the Mura-menti Landscape Protection Area.
Buses with microphone are needed for the bus guided nature tours. The duration of the guided nature tour is usually 3-4 hours.
Please always book your guided tours in advance!
