From Prague: E-Mountain Biking Trip to the Bohemian Paradise

From Prague: E-Mountain Biking Trip to the Bohemian Paradise

In case you spend only a couple of days wandering around Prague, it’s hard to imagine how rugged and fairytale looking countryside is to be found only 60 minutes drive north-east of town. Before setting off for the 8 hour e-bike adventure, you are going to get a proper safety briefing and you will be taught how to use your e-mtb bike to the fullest in the hilly terrain of the Bohemian Paradise. Admire the views over rolling countryside and lakes and enjoy your first glimpses of Trosky Castle, where you enjoy your first short break after around 10 kms of riding on mainly pleasant country lanes and gravel roads. The first fast and fun downhill of the day leads you to a remote lakeside location Nebakov, where you’re going to enjoy a tasty lunch. Just after refueling and having a bit of rest, ride through a narrow gorge lined by tall sandstone towers that have been carved by receding ocean millions of years ago. The highlight of the entire trip is riding a ridgeline double track trail high above the valley with a dozen of breathtaking views over hundreds of sandstone towers, the Hruboskalsko Rock Town. As you are approaching the finish of the ride, you will get a chance to have a quick break at another two stunning medieval castles, both perched on sandstone cliffs. You need a certain physical fitness and a bit of biking experience to be able to finish this trip. But it is guaranteed that all your effort will be turned into a lifetime experience.
