What is hiking? What is the purpose?

  • Hiking is a long, vigorous walk, usually on trails or footpaths in the countryside. Our hiking routes are usually in Budapest and/or at Budai-hegység / Buda hills.
  • The purpose is different for everyone: increasing endurance, developing map skills, spending free time usefully, getting to know beautiful landscapes, etc.

 

How long is your hiking route?

  • Our routes are usually between 4 – 20 kilometers. Occasionally several distances can be completed. (Except “7 Nap – 7 Éjszaka” [7 Day – 7 Night ] event. For more information, please go to the last question!)

 

Is there any level / lap time? Why is that necessary?

  • Yes, all of us route has level time.
  • And it’s necessary because the start, checkpoints & finish place are only available at a specified time.

 

So… should I run?

  • We always try to make excellent time for hiking, but sometimes our good-time-dancing is ineffective. Weather-appropriate, sporty and if necessary, layered clothing is recommended.
