Hiking with kids is not only a healthy program but also a great opportunity for parents to teach their children about nature. Fortunately, Hungary offers several nature trails for families.
The Gyada educational trail features a huge suspension bridge and wooden planks through a swamp, while Ant Dan takes kids through the wildlife of Naszály.
The Béka (frog) hiking route offers climbing equipment, toys, animal figures and funny signs as children make their way to the Farkas (wolf) dwelling. After the tour, they can head on over to the Mátra Chairlifts as well.
On the educational trail winding through the Zalakaros Park Forest, families learn about mushrooms and forest animals, children can stop to hear the singing of different bird species on song boards, and the whole family can relax on “wave” benches.
Meanwhile, on the nature trail starting at the exit of the Baradla Cave, a wasp leads kids through the forest, teaching them all about tree bark and other secrets of nature.
