From Prague: Tour to Saxon and Bohemian Switzerland

Start with pickup from your accommodation in Prague 1, or a meeting point in Prague 1, and head to Germany to visit the famous Bastei Bridge in the Saxon Switzerland National Park. This part is relatively easy. Admire the breathtaking views and then drive through the Elbe Canyon back to the Czech part of the park which is called Bohemian Switzerland National Park. Kind reminder. This is a typical hiking tour. We are getting many customers who underestimate a physical difficulty of this tour. In order to fully enjoy this tour, you should have at least moderate level of fitness and no mobility impairments. Depending on the season (From April to October), visit Pravcicka Brana, the largest sandstone arch in Europe. This impressive structure looks like something out of one of the Lord of the Rings movies. To get there, you must walk 3 km up the hill, which is not very steep but may be challenging. Afterward, have lunch at a local family restaurant run by a mother and her daughter. After lunch, head down the hill and stairs to the scenic Edmunds and Wild Gorges and take a boat trip on the water (From April to October). And then walk the same way back on the hill. This part is probably the most challenging. Depending on the season (November to March), you will visit the Tisa Rocks, a key attraction in the area, and admire the views. The total hiking distance divided into three parts in the main season is about 12 km. We cannot judge the difficulty of the tour. For us it is easy. Like a walking in the park. Because we are very fit. However some tourists claim the tour is extremely hard. So the truth is somewhere in the middle. Just remember that all those nice places on our pictures are not next to the road and you must take some effort to get there. Which is rewarding too. So if you understand this tour is a hiking, not a walking, you are welcome to join it.

Amazing Day Trip this was. The views were spectacular. This trip requires a lot of walking up and down some steep inclines. You do, however, have plenty of time to move at your own pace, and the rewards are so worth the effort. Martin is amazing and kind person and has done an excellent job and his professional knowledge made an unforgettable trip for us. I will definitely refer him to my friends who will visiting Prague in the future. Martin is generous to gift us with memorable souvenirs as a memory to this lovely day trip. Another bonus was that we got to spend some time with Martin’s father, who is a professional photographer and he clicked few photos for each one of us and mailed them to us the following day. The photos are so awesome. A big Thank you to Martin's father. Highly recommended, this trip if you are Prague

I’d recommend this experience for anyone looking to experience the Czech countryside and its natural beauty. Vojta, our guide, was authentic and funny throughout the tour, and was always ready to answer the groups questions. The lunch we were provided was delicious and authentic, served in a 200 year old remote hotel. The hikes left us tired and satisfied at the end of the day. 10/10!

The views were unbelievable and our guide Vojta was very friendly, funny and knowledgeable, creating a great day! The food was good as well, especially as they catered for vegetarian’s. However, a lot more intense walking/hiking than originally thought but overall an incredible day and worth every penny!

The entire experience was breathtaking! Our guide John was so patient and supportive throughout the hike!

really enjoyed the hinking tour! vojta was the best tour guide i could have wished for!
