The spring snowflake is faster than its name promises. Because it often blooms in February, sometimes even earlier than its family member, the snowdrop. However, with its white, bell-shaped flowers, it is at least as beautiful. Walk or cycle to the forest park and enjoy the beautiful flowers, explore the hiking trails and get to know the local animals and plants! Start the path towards Kossuth street, leave the roundabout at the second exit towards Lenti castle. You will find the forest park on the left side.

Our short but nice, interesting walk starts from Petőfi Street 179. Tormaföld. Here you will find a suitable place to park your car. We start off on the P∆ sign in the direction of the forest on a steep, asphalted 13% slope. We can't get lost because we have to go along this tourist sign throughout our tour. At our starting point, there are several beautiful, carved wooden boards that tell us where to find the different cellars. In the first stage of our walk we are in the embrace of forests, on both sides we can see beautiful trees and plants. Reaching the top of the hill, the houses, cellars with vines, and walnut trees appear on the ridge, and in this area we can also see fig trees and shrubs, and feel their scents. Going between the buildings and cellars, we can see the lookout tower and the orchard of fig trees on both sides. The view is impressive even from the bottom, but it is even more amazing from the lookout tower. The hills in the area that turn into a flat landscape will be visible. There is also a rest area next to the lookout tower. Visit the cellars, taste the different wines, or pick up the ripe, purple fruit in the Pick it yourself action, or just taste the delicacy of Tormafölde. We can return to our starting point with gastronomic and natural experiences, on the asphalt road along the P∆ sign.
The walking tour starts from Murania Sports and Cycling Centre in Lendva, where you can park your car.

On the hilltop we reach an asphalt road, where we take a long walk, admiring the view, and the rich vineyards, among the wine cellars of Lendva Hill. At the T-junction we turn right, and start descending the slope. After a few hundred metres, a sign indicates that we have to continue our trip to the left on a forest footpath. Following the forest path, we reach another T-junction where we turn right, and continue downhill. We pass the Wildlife Park, getting closer to the populated area. After a while, an asphalt road then a gravel road leads us back to the cemetery. Returning to the main road, we turn left, and return to the Murania Sports and Cycling Centre.
