Full description
Haven’t you ever experienced going down a river on a Canadian-style canoe? Leave the city behind and let yourself capture by a deep gorge that Sazava carved just outside the capital. The gorge is full of not just incredibly dense forests and dramatic rocks but also little cabins that locals built in late 20th century during the communist era. The guide will give you detailed instructions at the beginning of the trip and you will have enough time to try steering the boat on a flat water before we start. And of course your guide will be there for you any time you need assistance, though it is unlikely you will need his help after first few strokes of your paddle. Going down the river takes about 4 – 5 hours including few little breaks to breathe humid fresh air and of course you will stop for a small lunch en route. An added bonus of this trip is the way you get to the very starting point – by a local train line that cuts through a rocky terrain with some outstanding stone-made viaducts along the way. If you don’t have head for heights, you should better don’t lean out of the window! You need no special gear for this trip. In case of very low temperature and rainy weather it is recommended to use a wetsuit that you get upon request.

    We had the pleasure of meeting Martin yesterday, we could not fault his service. He let us know in advance when he would be arriving and came right on time. The entire day from start to finish was amazing, very relaxed and fun. We went for lunch in the local area near the river which allowed us to try some traditional Czech food. We could not fault this experience, it’s definitely worth the money. Thanks Martin for making our trip to Prague really special!

    Excellent day

    Brilliant day, Martin looked after us very well, especially when he had to rescue us out of the river. Scenery was amazing, lovely food at lunch and nice train journey back to the car. Stopped in a lovely village on way back for tea and cake. Would highly recommend this activity.

    Absolutely brilliant!

    Martin, our guide, was so friendly and easily taught us the basics, as we had never canoed before! My friend and I were canoeing all over the place and Martin was so patient. We cried with laughter and met some wonderful people, all whilst on a beautiful river surrounded by trees. Such an amazing and memorable day!
