Hungary is a predominantly rural country, one-fifth covered in forests. The Great Plain, especially the area around Kecskemét and the Kiskunság National Park, offers some of the best horseriding in Europe as well as fantastic horse-shows during the summer. It’s cheapest to select an independent horseriding operator.
Cycling is very well provided for: Tourinform can provide cycling maps with recommended routes, and bikes can be rented in most towns for around 1500-2000Ft a day. Particularly scenic cycling routes can be found around Lake Balaton. There are limited hiking opportunities in Hungary; however, walks in the Badacsony region offer stunning views over Lake Balaton.
