Full description
Get off the beaten path and relax in nature on a hiking tour of the Buda Hills. Meet your guide in front of Széll Kálmán tér metro station. After taking public transport from the meeting point, the hike starts on the slopes of Normafa, where you’ll get the first amazing views of Budapest from above.  Follow trails through the woods and ascend gradually through the hills to the famous viewpoint, the Elizabeth Lookout Tower. Admire the splendid views, then continue to a small cave that is safe to explore. After passing an abandoned limestone quarry, you’ll reach the extraordinary Tündér-szikla (Fairy-rock). Descend the hills and take a bus back to the city, where your tour will end.

    The hike with Laszlow was by far our greatest experience in Budapest. He hadn’t anticipated that we would come with a 2 year old but he automatically planned and took us on a most enjoyable pram/stroller-friendly trail, adding playground stops with panoramic views for our little one to enjoy, all while making us feel very comfortable and relaxed. His knowledge of the local history and area is outstanding and I thoroughly enjoyed looking for mushrooms in the forest as well as hearing a bit about the history of mushroom picking in Hungary from Laszlow. In addition, he took great photos of us and sent the same evening - memories we will cherish forever! And he also added a little surprise at the end of our hike! All in all, Laszlow was very friendly, knowledgeable and adaptable. I would highly recommend booking him for a hike of the Buda Hills if you do go! Thank you so much for helping us have so much fun on the hike, Laszlow!

    Totally recommended! If you are searching for a rebirthing, fresh and loveable hike in Budapest, this Hiking Tour is for you. The guide was so entertaining, he explained us the history of the city making it unforgettable, interesting and - most important - funny! Can't wait to go back to the Buda Hills asap!

    Wonderful day out, Laszlo was very knowledgeable and informative. Good history and knowledge of nature. We were very lucky as we had a private tour as we were the only 2 booked on to it that day. Had a short busy ride out of the city. Great views at the lookout above the city. Nice 4 hour walk, if you were looking for something more strenuous or longer the other trips offered looked great, unfortunately we were short of time. If we come back wouldn’t hesitate to book again. Nice surprise in the trip was we didn’t realise a strudel was included in the trip (vegan options available) was really good. Really nice to get out of the city and see some of the countryside. Highly recommend Trails of Budapest. 5* thank you
