Gemenc is the largest floodplain forest in Central Europe. The area is under nature conservation, as it provides a habitat for a rich wildlife. Besides herds of deer, wild boars, eagles, jackals, beavers, and herons, we can also encounter the black storks hiding here. The meeting point of the forest and the river provides an excellent habitat, as it nourishes and protects.
The region is part of the Duna-Dráva National Park. During spring floods, the Danube floods over 180 square kilometers of area, making it a rarity to paddle through it in a canoe!
