"We split the total distance (65 kilometres) into three parts to make sure of some extra time for wine-tasting and winery visits in addition to paddling. How different this situation would have been 150 years ago! At that time, we would have travelled 112 kilometres, most likely losing our way without a local guide among the countless bends and islands, the river swelling into a unique giant lake known as Bodrogköz during spring floods. Nowadays, the river still does not flow very fast, and on the lower section, you may even feel as if you are rowing upstream due to the effect of the backward swell of the Tisza." /Daniel Ercsey/
