PADDLE BOARD & KAYAKING
We are super lucky to have the beautiful lake Balaton or lake Deseda within a 45 minute drive. Bring your own equipment or Lake Deseda also offers the opportunity to hire equipment. There are plenty of stopping places along the lake edges and places to launch. A great way to enjoy a natural peaceful escape in areas bursting with wildlife.
We have three lakes within the local area. Our personal favourite is a beautiful private lake owned by a local villager, who let’s us fish for a small charge. Then we have Andocs lake where tickets are purchased at the pub in Andocs village ( opens at 7a.m.) and Kocsola lake purchase tickets on the bank. Both lakes are day tickets and have carp, catfish, zander and pike in. (Own tackle required). A fishing trip to Lake Balaton is another suggestion, you have Siofok within 35 minutes drive.
Birds you might spot or hear are Woodpeckers, Cuckoo, Skylark and Goldfinch and the European Bee-eater which is one of Hungary’s most beautiful birds. Its colourful plumage is breathtaking. A short drive from the site we have the nature reserve of Pacsmags Lakes of Regoly with it’s marshlands and fishponds, 10 km to the south-east of the town of Tamási.
WALKING & HIKING
The Koppany trails network traverse the five villages of the Nature Park, but we also are within striking distance of the DDP hikes (red walk). “Beautiful nature – and cultural landscape. Hill with wine houses, forests and fields. Healthy wildstand and beautiful flora. Walking kilometers without encounter anyone on the most fantastic paths and amazing views.” Abel Stok recommends Koppányvölgy Natúrpark –
The unpolluted dark skies of the Koppany Valley offer ideal star gazing opportunities and we have telescope available for guests so if we aren’t already out staring at the skies then just ask us to set it up. Within 1hr 30m drive is Zselic Starry Sky Park. which offers an astronomy program for visitors that includes a planetarium, a meteorite collection and a telescopic observation.
Cycling in Transdanubia is one of the most enjoyable ways to explore more of this part of Hungary but the undulating landscape does require a good level of fitness. From the campsite there is a cycle route to the renowned national bird reserve of Pacsmags Lakes. Alternatively you might want to take a trip to Lake Balaton cycle tracks which can be done in sections. There is bike hire available at locations around Balaton Lake, we also have several loan bikes available for free onsite.
