There is nothing better on the biggest and warmest lake in Europe - Lake Balaton than sailing holidays. The number of campsites and cottages, directly near berths are ready for the sailors, low and warm to hot water of Lake Balaton invites tourists for sailing holidays in the summer. Sailing vacation at Lake Balaton attracts tourists not only with the sailboat excursions. There is a possibility everywhere on the shore to rent small boats and make a trip around the lake. The cost of berthing is relatively cheap, so going to Lake Balaton with own boat is a good way of spending you sailing holidays.

Sailing schools organize courses for beginners and advanced seamen. In some sailing schools you may even go through the basic course of sailing with the reception of an international sailing license on graduation, which will give you a possibility to have your own boat or rent sailboats almost anywhere in the world. The training on sailboat includes tying knots, learning escape maneuvers, and the correct behavior in emergencies.

Training for youths, adults, as well as courses for children from six to twelve years old will take tourists three hours every day. You can enjoy fresh marine wind, for example, in a good sailing school on the Tihany Peninsula. Even children can finish their sailing course at Lake Balaton with a junior sailing certificate. Experienced teachers and small groups provide youngsters with a lot of fun sailing. The school also helps with the process of finding a suitable accommodation option at Tihany. It is not a problem if an inexperienced sailor fall out of the boat, as long as he can swim. Since the water of Lake Balaton, on average, only 3.5 meters deep, it can be up to 30 degrees warmer.

A sailing vacation is, of course, possible everywhere around the lake. In virtually every city, there are sailing schools. For those, who besides the quiet recreation at the beach, wish a bit of adventure during a sailing vacation, Lake Balaton is the right place!
