Bódva Valley Nature Trail (Perkupa)


Distance and Duration: 2 km, 1.5 hours

This is a periodic trail open during the Bódva Bird Migration and Ringing Camp from September 1 – October 26. The trail leads to the camp and starts from behind the Perkupa train station at the first turn-off to the right after the bridge over the Bódva River.

The Bódva Valley in Northern Hungary is an important ecological corridor stretching along an elongated area favourable to bird migration. The trail presents the riverside habitats and the impact of human activity on the landscape, as well as typical flora and fauna species in the area. Every year, a new information board is dedicated to the current Hungarian bird of the year and its interesting habits.

Winter Tour on Esztramos Hill and the Aladár Földvári Cave Túra

The tour departs from Bódvarákó and follows a former mining road to the mine head 305 meters above sea level. From there, a beautiful panorama opens over the Bódva Valley, including the villages of Tornaszentandrás and Bódvaszilas. The surface tour then heads underground into the spectacular Aladár Földvári Cave which is normally closed to tourism. Check out the “cave popcorn” and “moon milk” karst formations! Hot mulled wine will await guests at the end of the tour.
