Hungarian Nature and Spa Tour

Tour Description: Self-guided

Sunshine and dry continental air define the climate of the Hungarian region this bike tour travels through. Above all, this tour is not a simple "Wellness Offer" as much as an opportunity to enjoy this spas and thermal waters in the context of a cycling holiday. And every night, you will stay where you can bathe or swim in the curative waters.

In the Carpathian Basin in Central Europe, where Hungary is located, the crust of the earth is very thin so the thermal waters rise very easily from the core of the earth to the surface. There is a saying in Hungary that all you have to do is push a stick into the ground to reach the thermal water rich in minerals and trace elements. Thanks to this natural phenomenon and, with more than 400 hot springs and 200 thermal spas, Hungary is a world leader in spa vacationing.

In fact, thermal waters in Hungary have been used for curative purposes since Roman times, who developed an extensive bathing culture around the hot springs. All Hungarian spas have chlorine-free mineral pools of varying temperatures of 80-100 degrees Fahrenheit (28-38 Celsius). The hot springs gush into the surface at very high temperatures and have to be cooled off to different temperatures suitable for bathing and swimming. On this tour, suitable for those of all ages, you will can enjoy the healing waters of Hungary!

This self-guided tour includes special VELO-TOURING Service: The holiday includes the services of a guide/driver who follows the group in a back-up van.
