Hygenic, eco-friendly compost WC and wash room is available in the camp, the food will be prepared by our camp cook on an open fire from fresh local ingredients.

This region was historically Hungarian before becoming part of Czechoslovakia in 1920 under the Treaty of Trianon and then Slovakia since 1993. The territory remains mainly inhabited by Hungarians. On the tour we will enjoy both the Slovakian and Hungarian cultures of the region; we will meet the warm hearted Hungarian village people, whilst tasting Slovakian zmrzlina (ice-cream), Kofola (the Communist answer to Coca-Cola), herring salad and outstanding Slovakian beer. PLUS we based this programme around visiting the The Wine Festival in Garamkövesd, where we will see the historic cellars, drink the excellent natural wines specific to this region and play music and dance with the Hungarian wine-makers (English speakers) some who are retired locomotive drivers PLUS talented musicians.
