Hugging the perimeter of the beautiful Lake Balaton the first 50 or so kilometres, I linked together the small resorts along the south of the lake, before veering south into a beautiful national park.
Littered with great gravel trails, surrounded by what seems like endless swampland and cattle reserves; this is a really superb section for feeling thoroughly immersed in wildlife.
The end drops you just a stone's throw from both the Croatian and Slovenian border.
