The tour goes partly through a beautiful forest and partly along open fields. After about 10 kilometers you are on the place Törökkoppány. Here you will find one of the oldest Catholic churches in the province and many examples of the former Turkish domination.

Day 4
After the breakfast provided by the campsite owner, the first real ordeal is on the agenda today. A hefty journey of no less than 21 kilometers along 4 different villages. You usually walk in an open field and arrive in Érteny after about 4 km. A small but beautiful village on the edge of the Tolna province. There are various places of interest along the way, such as a centuries-old well (Török-kút) and various lookout towers that offer a view of the beautiful surroundings. Along the way at Malomtetõ you will find a nice lunch place to relax halfway and enjoy the beautiful nature. After more than 21 kilometers you arrive at a campsite where a delicious Hungarian evening meal is prepared for you. You are back in the Somogy province in the small picturesque village of Miklósi. Of course your luggage is at that destination again. You stay here in a beautiful 6 person cottage with all amenities.
 
TörökkútUnique left over well: Török-kút

Day 5
The breakfast is well arranged at the campsite (fresh bread rolls, also on the go) and after the delicacies the tour starts to the place Bonnya over a distance of about 20 km. You pass several villages of which the first is Zics. Here is the former Zichy castle of one of the former landlords of the area. Then you go to Andocs, where there is a real monastery with a corresponding lace-museum of old costumes of the area from earlier times. If time permits, just walk in there. The adjacent church is also beautiful to view inside.
The tour goes mainly through open field to the place Bonnya where you stay in a beautiful Hotel located in the valley called Somogy-Kertje (Garden of Somogy). In the adjacent restaurant you can enjoy a delicious meal prepared by skilled Hungarian chefs. The restaurant is very well regarded in the meadow environment.

Day 6
The breakfast in Somogy-Kertje is also excellent to mention and then begins the journey towards a real city (since 2014) at about 16 km called Igal, where you have been before. The tour is really beautiful and for a small part also goes through wooded areas, but also the phenomenal views are highly recommended. The place Igal is a nice town where a large Thermálbad is located. If time lends itself to it, take a dip in the healing springs of this water complex or let your legs be massaged by one of the masseuses present for a small fee. Today you will stay in Hotel Peresa in the center of Igal. A luxury hotel with excellent service, tasty meals and a good breakfast. In Igal you can also find plenty of entertainment at night.

Day 7
The last walking tour goes back to Somogyacsa. The place where you started over a distance of 14 km, mainly through a beautiful forest. You leave Igal on the north side and enter the immense forests of the Koppány-Völgy nature park near the water tower. You will certainly meet roe deer or wild boar along the way. The lunch spot is nicely covered and is called Gerézdi Erdészház and is about 8 km away. Over the hills another 6 km and you are exactly on the spot where you started a week ago. Hardly to remember given the many experiences and villages you have passed. On behalf of Artventures Vakanties a real Hungarian has prepared a delicious bógraz with pörkölt over a wood fire (original Hungarian Goulash) and you can enjoy live Hungarian music which inaugurates a beautiful evening (last).

Day 8
After breakfast in the central bar we prepare for the trip to Budapest. Depending on the departure time of your plane, we can catch a glimpse of this beautiful city: the pearl on the Danube. If time permits we drive to various tourist venues, but of course you have to be at the airport 2 hours before departure for the trip home. If you have arrived in Hungary with your own transport, this is also the last one day of this hiking trip.

In June, as a try-out, we walked the entire Koppányvölgy tour with Jean in 6 walking days and spent the night in different villages in this beautiful area. It was a huge experience. Jean said that this tour will be on the program in 2019, along with parts of the DDP route and a part of the Sultans trail. We will certainly try these two. Thanks for the beautiful trips! Greetings, René van Veen

Hiking tour
Sultans Trail

International walking route that partly runs through Hungary. The route is part of the famous Sultans Trail that the Ottoman army has traveled from Turkey to Vienna. The Sultans Trail is named after Sultan Süleyman I, who ruled from 1520 to 1566 over the mighty Ottoman Empire. The Trail takes you through nine countries, including Hungary. A branch of this tour runs from Sopron in the west of Hungary over Lake Balaton to the city of Pécs in the south. So you walk part of this trip in 7 walking days from the place Szántód to Pécs. In the Roman period there was the settlement Sopianae. The total walking distance is 90mi., so a considerable walking experience is required. The daily trips are more than 13mi., so keep that in mind.
