The Danube Region’s Water Tourism Association (Duna-Régió Víziturisztikai Szövetség) has been founded to represent and unite the participants of Hungarian water tourism. This is an important step regarding the development process of the entire catchment area of the Danube, Hungary and the coordination of this process in civil areas.
Our association creates a civil community and networking movement covering the entire country and some of the surrounding ones primarily by redefining water tourism and bringing together all participants of water tourism, such as suppliers and accommodation providers, device manufacturers and lessors, canoeistsand kayakers, rowers, motor ship and sailing tourists, recreational fishermen and others engaging in water related activities.
Our association has started its water tourism networking based on a new approach: it acknowledges the rivers of the Danube Valley as several separate regions depending on their natural conditions. Social networking based cooperation is being built between these regions.
Based on their prominent view, the members of the Association consider water users as equals, therefore they are represented equally.
Our main activities are
organizing and supporting tours and recreational water races
representing the interests of Hungarian water tourists

coordinating supply and demand in water tourism
expert and advisory activities both in civil and public sectors
teaching water sports within the confines of Physical Education
