Treetop walks in Hungary with stunning forest views | TOP 5

Since the epidemic, the popularity of adventurous forest hikes has increased significantly, and more and more people have discovered the range of nature trails available in Hungary. Here are some of the places that are worth a visit in winter, as canopy walks are a very different experience from the usual trails on the ground.


Canopy walkway in Makó

The best-known Hungarian treetop walkway and nature trail opened its doors to hikers in 2012, allowing them to discover the mysteries of the wildlife living along the Maros on a 191-meter-long path, 9 meters above the ground. The walk through the onion-shaped towers ends with a bit of fun, as the highest tower has a tube slide down to ground level.


Karcag

The Karcag Park Forest, dominated by oak trees, has a 314-metre-long canopy walk, stretching longer than the one in Makó. It is an ideal hiking destination for children or older people too, as the trail offers a number of interactive stops and can be visited every day from sunrise to sunset.


Kaszó

On the 124-meter-long Kaszó trail, you can learn about the wildlife of the Belső-Somogy (Inner Somogy—the Transl.) hornbeam-oak forest at capy-height. You can walk on the wooden suspension bridge and try an ‘invisible tree stand’ for observing wildlife. Interactive boards on the ramps, trails, and rest areas will help you learn more about the forest.


Pannonhalma

The fish-shaped, short treetop walk is more of a lookout path, but still offers a beautiful view of the Sokoró Hills and the fabulous natural treasures of the Pannonhalma Landscape Protection Area. The lookout path south of the Pannonhalma Archabbey can be an unforgettable experience even for families with strollers and people arriving in wheelchairs.


Ipolytarnóc

The walkway made up of narrow suspension bridges through the tree canopy is truly adventurous, and thus it can only be accessed wearing a harness, but in return, you get really close to the wildlife. It also functions as a lookout, offering a great panoramic view of the forests of Ipolytarnóc.
