About the program

Who do we recommend?
In the joint organization of the Váci Boathouse and SurfskiFUN, we welcome all beginners and advanced kayakers to one of the most beautiful areas, the Danube Bend! 
You will also have the opportunity to hike and/or test EPIC surfski kayaks at the Vác location.
We will start on two hiking routes, and according to our plans, the two teams will unite before the finish line.
1st distance: Zebegény - Vác ~ 30 km
2nd distance: Esztergom - Vác ~ 50 km
Testing: after the tour or all day at the Váci Csónaház site - free of charge!

PROGRAM PLAN
1st distance: Zebegény - Vác
Meeting place and time:
• if you arrive by car, at the Váci Csónakház site, at 7:45 (free parking), from where we take the 8:33 train to Zebegény (the train station is about 1.5 km away on foot, but all the necessary things we'll take you by minibus)
• if you come by public transport, you can arrive in Zebegény directly by train (departs from Nyugati at 8:08 a.m.)

In Zebegény, we will get off the train practically at the landing place at 8:57. The boats and equipment will be waiting for us there, and after the distribution and the water technical training, we will set off downstream on the Danube.
Scheduled departure: 10:00
We plan to stop at Nagymaros (halfway), where you can make up for lost calories. In case of any problems, the minibus with a trailer will be waiting for us here.
If the other team is fast enough, we can even team up with them here. If not, then we will continue to Vác, where we await you with a relaxed spritz and dinner!
Planned arrival: 16:00 (at a comfortable pace and with a stop)

2nd distance: Esztergom - Vác
Meeting location and time: at the Váci Boathouse site, at 7:45 a.m. (free parking), from where we will go to Esztergom by minibus.
After the distribution of boats and equipment and the water technical training, we will set off downstream on the Danube.
Scheduled departure: 10:30
We plan to stop at Nagymaros, where you can replace the lost calories. In case of any problems, the minibus with a trailer will be waiting for us here.
If we are fast enough, we can catch up with the other team here. If not, then we will continue to Vác, where we will surely meet the others and share our experiences with each other over the vacsi.
Planned arrival: 16:00


TESTING: depending on how many ships we can secure, it will be possible even during the day, but if not, then definitely after 4:00 p.m. until the sun goes down :) We will update the information about this after the application is closed.


VESSELS, EQUIPMENT:
We plan to go with EPIC surfski boats, but if you are more comfortable in a sea kayak, you can also choose that.
You can come with a single or double boat, subject to availability. We assess these needs in advance and assign who will row in what even before the event. There will be an opportunity to exchange at the stop - if the other person wants it too :)
But if you have your own boat, you can also come with it!
We provide a shovel, a life jacket, and a 5L waterproof bag.  


PRICES:
• HUF 17,000/person - for some ships
• HUF 14,000/person - in the case of a double boat
• HUF 12,000/person - in case of own boat
The price includes the rental and delivery of boats and equipment, passenger transportation to Esztergom and Zebegény, tour guidance, and the cost of refreshments, lemonade, and potluck food after the tour.
