Everyone, who was spending holidays at Lake Balaton, at least for a while, did not only to swim or sail, but also thought about a cruise on the largest lake in Central Europe.

The best way "at sea" is to get on the car ferry in Szántód, which is located in the southeast of the lake or in Tihany - in the northwest, and cross the lake from one side to the other. But this fun does not last long, because the ferry passes the entire route in ten minutes, so a regular marine excursion on the lake on the board of a steamer is more recommended.

Cruises on the lake with duration of about 90 minutes depart from major ports on the lake as Keszthely, Balatonfured or Siofok daily in summer, from the smaller places at least weekly basis. The tour programs are various. Whether for coffee or wine tasting trip, the choice of the program depends on the interest of tourists. The evening program "Sunset ships" offers a disco on a steamer in the lake.

If all this is still not enough, you can try a so-called panoramic ride. Holiday season is long here, because almost every town on Lake Balaton has a port. On the Panorama route you will pass along almost entire lake shore, with the approximately 20 ports. You can stop at any time disembark. Sometimes, the route also turns to the left or right side of the lake. Surely, Panorama shipping is one of the most pleasant ways to get acquainted with Lake Balaton.

If you need to find a proper accommodation option at Lake Balaton you do not need to worry at all: there are various cottages, hotels and campgrounds available in this popular holiday region – the selection is enormous. An advance booking in the summer is, however, necessary.
