During the cycling tour you get acquainted with the most famous Holiday Resort of Hungary. Lake Balaton is the biggest natural freshwater lake in Europe with water surface of 600 square km (232 square mile). The length of the shoreline is approximately 200 km (125 miles). The southern shore of the lake is known for its shallow water beaches and its spectacular panorama. One of the many reasons why so many tourists the southern shore choose to see the marvellous sunset behind the hills. The northern shore has hills and the most beautiful region with its meadows, forests and ravines. The area is well known for its white & red wines, therefore nice vineyards surround it. After 7 km (4 miles) of cycling the World’s third largest thermal lake, Hévíz can be reached as well. The place is known as a curative centre from the time of the Roman emperors. May and June, when fruit trees are flowering, is a very romantic part of the year to come and ride a bike through this area. September and October are restful and coloured.
