|Description:||This special tour combines the miracle of a cycling tour and of the spa-pleasures in one. The bike tour starts at the feet of the Tokaj-Vineyards and it is easily manageable for everyone. Then we follow the River Tisza on its tarmac-covered embankment. We cycle for miles along this unspoilt “riverscape” while seeing and listening to pure nature, one of this region’s jewels. The comfortable bike tour comes to an end in Nádudvar where you can enjoy a happy Puszta-Pool-„Cheers“.|
