Mecsekerdő Forestry Co. Ltd. – host and main organizer

Our limited company is among the forestries of Hungary that work in very diversified geographical conditions. Diversity originates in the harmonious attachment of different terrain features which is particularly characteristic of South-Transdanubia. The Southern border of our silviculture territory is the River Dráva(Drave) which is the state border as well. It is a zone of flood area forests at 100-110 meters above sea level. This region is known as "Ormánság" with sand hills in certain parts. North-west of Ormánság lies the "Zselic" region in Somogy county. It is a hilly land geographically formed in the Pannonian Age with an average height of 130-140 meters. The greatest inselberg of South-Transdanubia is the range of Mecsek Hills - exceptionally rich in natural values - stretching from east to west. The major valleys of the Mecsek Hills are significantly of north-south direction with a main valley dividing the hills into Western- and the Eastern-Mecsek. The hills are 400-600 meters above sea level.
  • In our two forestry schools, in Mókus Suli at Árpádtető, and in Kikerics at Sasrét we are providing the opportunity for children to learn about nature which surrounds them.
  • The oldest forestry railway of the country was founded by baron Rezső Biederman in 1901. The railway operates passenger services between Almamellék and Sasrét.
  • Our Company controls one of the largest adventure parks of the country, the Mecsextrém Park in Pécs. The Park offers programs not only for families and school classes, but for team building purposes as well.
  • The Mecsekerdő Zrt. has realized the crucial importance of a healthy lifestyle, and we know that pure fruit juices are playing a significant role in it. That is the main reason why we built our own factory at Kárász to produce 100% natural fruit juices.
