Off – road track in Somogybabod:

Orienteering Off Road Trophy: along the route of the international trophy, participants will search for control points in specially prepared race cars, with the help of an itinerary, map and compass, competing with another in difficult terrain conditions. In a car, there are 2 or 3 drivers (navigators) in addition to the driver, who also assists in rescuing a stuck car. The cars are driven separately.

– Expedition Tour: in the spirit of African expeditions, the participants travel in convoys and tackle combined terrain challenges together. The specially prepared cars can carry 2-3 people in addition to the driver.

– Self-drive: all guests can drive the off-road vehicles on designated tracks. First, professional off-road instructors give off-road driving training, then everyone drives the cars independently. On tracks of varying difficulty, everyone can drive to the level of their own courage and driving ability.


The shooting range in the neighboring village is an excellent recreation for our guests who love shooting and weapons. There is disc shooting, hunter simulation, precision shooting and personalized shooting packages. An experience for ladies and gentlemen alike! 

The adventure park on Bodrog is a real treat: within one estate you can try paintball, laser shooting, the escape room experience and off-road racing in huge off-road vehicles.

But what makes it really special is: imagine a restored German submarine, currently functioning as an escape room, which will rise or sink depending on the success of the tasks… an exciting and memorable experience for all participants.
