The region also has plenty to offer to those who prefer active recreation

Dashing through the winter forest on a sled, or skiing down the steep slopes, sitting in a chair lift as it rises towards the peak or walking across a suspension bridge – doesn’t that sound fun and exciting? The Mátra and Bükk Mountains have many excellent fun and adventure parks, with segway courses, streetball courts and pool ball pitches for anyone seeking an adrenaline rush. You can even ride down the hillside on two wheels or on cross-country rollers.

Kékestető is a great spot for skiers in the heart of the Mátra. The longest slope of our country starts on the 1014 meter high peak.

If you’re a seasoned hiker, you should be aware that the National Blue Trail was the first long-distance walking trail in both Hungary and Europe and takes you through the romantic wilderness of the Mátra and Bükk Mountains. One of the places it visits is Kékestető – the highest point in the country – where you will find exciting things to do all year round, with tours of different difficulty levels. In winter, you can even ski here.

Kékestető is an excellent place for shorter walks and hiking tours.
