Tokaj and Lake Tisza in Hungary

Set sail on the rural rivers of Hungary! Nicols Boats have two departure bases to choose from - Kisköre in the south sailing between lakes and national parks or Tokaj in the north and in the heart of a world-famous wine region.

Tokaj is located on the banks of the Bodrog River and is known as a city of wines and festivals. There are many excellent restaurants and wineries which have been listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List including the famous Tokaj wine that Louis XIV described as “the wine of kings and the king of wines”!

You can cruise in three directions from the Nicols Tokaj base. Heading along the Bodrog River you can reach the town of Sátoraljaújhely on the border of Slovakia. While here visit the large Zemplén Adventure Park. On the return journey, spend a night moored close to the castle of Sárospatak and stop off at the village of Bodrogkeresztúr where you can go canoeing in the protected Bodrogzug-Tokaj Park. Throughout your journey you’ll be surrounded by mountains and vineyards. The other available itineraries from Tokaj are a cruise on the Upper Tisza to the north towards Tiszabercel and then to Dombrád, or in the other direction south through pretty countryside and cruising to the hydroelectric power station of Tiszalök before returning to Tokaj.
