Bicycle rent and cycling toursDiscover the beauty of the Villány Wine Region lanes with our experienced tour guide!
What could be a more ideal way of exploring the wine region than riding a bike enjoying the soft breeze and the Mediterranean sunshine of Villány cycling among the lanes? Since 2012 in Hungary a couple of glass of wine have also been permitted while cycling…but, of course, with moderation! Take advantage of the fact that from Villány to Siklós there is already a bikeway! By bike you can reach even Siklós Castle or Thermal Spa Siklós.
The Villány Mountains and its environs provide an excellent opportunity for an excursion for those who wish to cycle. Visit the sights of the Villány-Siklós wine road on two wheels during a round trip, or just cycle for an hour in this wonderful region in the pleasant spring or autumn sunshine. If you would like to get to know interesting facts about the Villány Wine Region or lanes not indicated on the map during the trip, then ask for tour guidance! This way, you will not come across a large number of tourists. It can be requested even for 2 persons!
