Gay Budapest tourBudapest is often called the Paris of the East. Its grand boulevards, sumptuous architecture, and focus on food are not to be rushed, so we’ve devoted an extended weekend to Hungary’s capital. Then on to the Alpine sweetheart, Slovenia. Spend two nights in private wooden huts where we explore local lakes, the marvellous Alps and kilometres of caves. And finally, Ljubljana offers a little taste of the big city. Here we’ll enjoy top-notch cuisine, a lovely boat ride, and a day trip to the Goriška Brda wine region. From here, head home or join our flagship Croatian Southern Dalmatia Gay Cruise.

Day 1 - Budapest, Hungary
Szia—welcome to Hungary and big gay Budapest. Look for an Out Adventures rep in the airport arrivals area for your hotel transfer.

Nothing is planned until our Group Meeting at 5PM, followed by a lovely walk and a private wine and cheese cruise on the Danube.

Day 2 - Budapest, Hungary
A tour of Pest kicks off at Central Market Hall where we’ll have a chance to meander the various stalls and food vendors.

From here we head to Vörösmarty Square and Váci Street where we’ll wander their cafes, shopping, and landmarks en route to St Stephen’s Basilica which houses the mummified hand of its namesake saint.

Then off to our favourite authentic market in the city for true Hungarian fare before taking a panoramic drive with stops at Hero’s Square and City park where we’ll stroll by Vajdahunyad Castle.

We’ll wrap up the afternoon with a behind the scenes tour of the State Opera House before down time and a fabulous dinner in a local gay couple’s home.

Day 3 - Budapest, Hungary
Our day begins exploring the VII District’s Art Nouveau & Neo-Classical influence, the Design District and the Jewish Quarter. Once again, lunch will be a great opportunity to dig into authentic Hungarian dishes.

We then cross the Danube to spend the afternoon exploring Buda where the Citadel, a saintly monument, and the views await.

Our day ends at the recently reopened Royal Gardens Bazaar. Built between 1875 and 1888, the new cultural space brings back old glamour.

The remainder of the evening is free, but for those interested we’ll enjoy an optional evening at a public bath, followed by dinner at the hotel.

Day 4 - Budapest / Lake Bohinj / Lake Bled, Slovenia
Dobro jutro—that’s good morning in Slovenian!

We have a 5-hour (ish) drive to a seriously glamorous campsite at Lake Bled. Bags dropped off, we’ll head on a traditional pletna boat ride to Bled Church, followed by dinner at Bled Castle.

Returning to our campsite we’ll release our inner lumberjacks while enjoying our private wood-burning hot tubs, or perhaps a bonfire.

Accommodation: Gozdne Vile Glamping, Lake Bled

Day 5 - Lake Bled, Slovenia
After a leisurely morning we’ll stop at Bohinj Church before taking a gondola ride up Vogel Mountain for a simple, but delicious lunch.

For those interested, we’ll head into town for an optional dinner, followed by another night at camp.

Once in Ljubljana, we’ll check into one of our favourite boutique hotels before a walking tour of the old town followed by sparkling wine and canapés on a private river cruise. The remainder of the evening is free to wander the city.

Trip Notes

Visas
If your passport is from the USA, Canada, or Europe, you can visit both Hungary and Slovenia for up to 90 days without a visa. There may be exceptions, and all visas are the traveller’s responsibility.

Culture Shock
Hungary is a developed nation with the comforts of home and generally safe to visit. That said, pickpockets and scams can be found anywhere popular with tourists in Budapest. Slovenia also offers the luxuries of home, but not everyone will speak English. We recommend you have a sense of humour, take it easy, and leave any valuables at home.

Local LGBT Scene
There’s a small but thriving queer scene in downtown Budapest – they even have baths (the gay kind). You don’t need to suppress your sexuality, but it’s still Eastern Europe, so PDAs may not be well received. Outside the city centre, conservative attitudes prevail. There is also a small but growing gay scene in Ljubljana, Slovenia’s capital.

Weather
You can look forward to typical, continental summer weather. Daytime highs might hit 87F (30C), though evenings could be cooler in Slovenia’s alpine country where we camp.

Required Vaccinations
The WHO suggests immunization against Hepatitis A and B, rabies, and influenza before visiting Hungary or Slovenia. To determine if you should take preventative measures to reduce the risk of illness, consult with your doctor or a travel medical clinic, as we cannot provide vaccination recommendations.

Electricity
You will need an international travel plug/adapter for C- and F- type sockets.

Connectivity
We will have reliable Wi-Fi at the hotels, though it may be spotty at the campsite. Feel free to tweet, pin, post and share your experience with your friends and family at home.

Travel Insurance
For everybody’s peace of mind, medical travel insurance is required on all Out Adventures tours. At a minimum, your travel insurance must provide cover against personal accident, death, medical expenses, emergency repatriation and personal liability, with a minimum medical coverage of US $200,000.

Meals
This trip includes breakfast daily, 4 lunches and 5 dinners.

Money
The local currency is the Forint in Hungary (HUF), and the Euro in Slovenia (EUR). We recommend carrying some cash for small purchases, although credit cards are accepted at hotels and most restaurants. We also recommend bringing about $400 USD in case of an emergency, or if your credit/ATM cards are placed on hold.

Tipping
If you are happy with services throughout your trip, a tip is recommended. Tipping details will be provided in your final trip documentation, however we recommend budgeting approximately $150-$200 USD.

What to bring
Our adventures entail carrying your own luggage on occasion. And while you’ll never schlep far, things can quickly get costlier than a celebrity breakup if you don’t keep your baggage under 20kg/44lb thanks to costly surcharges on domestic flights. You should also bring something smaller for day trips to carry water, your camera, and any souvenirs you find along the way.

Optional Activities
Every Out Adventure offers optional excursions that are not included in price of this trip. Please see the daily itinerary in your final pre-trip packet to learn what’s available.

How We Travel
Out Adventures is all about good times with likeminded guys. Whatever’s on the itinerary – from fireside camping to five-star decadence – our goal is to make the experience magical. We’re also committed to supporting the communities we visit by hiring local guides, staying at locally-owned accommodations when possible, and celebrating local cuisine. It all adds up to a great way to immerse yourself in the culture.

Your Guide
All Out Adventures are led by a gay (or gay-welcoming) guide. Whenever possible, we hire destination locals. And we can also connect you with the right people if you’d like to delve deeper into the local culture. If you’re pleased with your guide, we recommend a tip of US $50-$100 per person… they’ll certainly appreciate it!

Flying Solo
If you’ve never travelled on your own, it’s an amazing way to get to know yourself while making new friends along the way. We can arrange for you to share a room with people in your age range at no charge, or you can pay a supplement for your own room. If there’s an odd number of solos, we’ll rotate a single room on a random basis.
