About waterways of Bodrog floodplain
The Bodrog and the waterways of Bodrogzug belong to the safest water tour areas in Hungary. The slow Bodrog, due to the water rising effect of the Tisza, seems to be almost still; it is ideal also for beginners, similarly to the calm waters of the alluvial canals. At normal water levels, there are approx. 27 km of waterways available, from these, visitors may continue to the river Bodrog to the north (at km 27) and to the south (at km 4), so, eventually, a circular tour is possible, too. Overall, the area has 60 km of rowing trails, allowing multiple day tours.
The area of Bodrogzug shows many interesting features also during floods. The landscape changing during floods - with the Zemplén mountain range in the background and Kopasz Hill - is unique, not only nationwide.
