Cycle route description

The cycle route from Balatonboglár to Balatonfüred involves cycling along quiet side roads to Szántód, taking the car ferry to Tihany, then cycling mainly on cycle paths to Balatonfüred.

The cycle route is flat as far as Szántód. The route takes you from Balatonboglár through Balatonlelle, Balatonszemes, Balatonszárszó, Balatonföldvár then Szántód. From Szántód we take the ferry across the narrowest and deepest part of the lake to Tihany.

From the ferry port at Tihany we turn right towards Balatonfüred.

The first part of the ride into Balatonfüred involves cycling along the main road. This road is only busy for a short time after a ferry has unloaded its consignment of cars, then it is fairly quiet again. There are dedicated cycle paths most of the way from Tihany into Balatonfüred, so cyclists can ride safely without being disturbed by motor vehicle traffic.

There are cycle lanes next to the pedestrian walkways along the waterfront at Balatonfüred but cyclists should still take care as the cycle lanes tend to be crisscrossed by sight seeing pedestrians.
