Parkerdõ offers nice excursions. Tourist routes pass by “Kilátó” (Observation Tower) that offers a magnificent panoramic view of Balaton Uplands; with clear sight, one can see as far as Badacsony even.
Nordic walking is a total body version of walking that can be enjoyed both by non-athletes as a health-promoting physical activity, and by athletes as a sport. The activity is performed with specially designed walking poles similar to ski poles.
Compared to regular walking, Nordic walking (also called pole walking) involves applying force to the poles with each stride. Nordic walkers use more of their entire body (with greater intensity) and receive fitness building stimulation not present in normal walking for the chest, latissimus dorsi muscle, triceps, biceps, shoulder, abdominals, spinal and other core muscles that may result in significant increases in heart rate at a given pace. Nordic walking has been estimated as producing up to a 46% increase in energy consumption, compared to walking without poles.
Technique: The cadences of the arms, legs and body are, rhythmically speaking, similar to those used in normal, vigorous, walking. The range of arm movement regulates the length of the stride. Restricted arm movements will mean a natural restricted pelvic motion and stride length. The longer the pole thrust, the longer the stride and more powerful the swing of the pelvis and upper torso.

River Zala is the only river supplying Lake Balaton. It stems from the foothills of the Alps, near the Austrian border between Szentgotthárd and Őriszentpéter. It emerges from the three major branches accumulating from the Black Lake, the water of Sphagnum mossy marshland and many small sources. Through the Zala Hills region, it gets to Small Balaton, and finally, it flows into Lake Balaton at the southern part of Keszthely Bay, at Fenékpuszta, at 115 dpkm.
Along its way of nearly 140 kilometers, the small stream becomes strenghtened to a small river. It flows also through Zalaegerszeg and the Small Balaton, thereby making its image more colourful.
