This route offers huge variability on short distance - rolling hills, paved flat special path on river´s banks, paved roads without cars as well off-road section in forest. On last day you can hike and settle down meeting point for pick up and transfer to Prague.

What makes this tour different is the combination of canoeing, cycling and hiking. You can build your own tour as you wish. It is you who decide how far you would like to travel each day by canoe and by bike.

For the first part of the tour from Prague to Cesky Krumlov you will travel by minibus or car. On Guided Group tours we leave Prague in the morning. On Self Guided tours you can choose your departure time. Cesky Krumlov, a UNESCO heritage site, is not only a fascinating medieval center, but the cultural life and history of this beautifully well-preserved town is truly unique.
For the next day you can decide how far you would like to travel downriver by canoe or life-raft. Distances can vary from 2 to 35 km (1-21 miles). We will convey you to the starting point. The river trip ends at the boat rental agency in Cesky Krumlov, which is within walking distance from your hotel.

The next day you cycle from Cesky Krumlov to another world-famous town - Ceske Budejovice, which gave its name to Budweiser beer, and then on to Hluboka nad Vltavou. You will certainly not want to miss the opportunity of tasting Budweiser beer in its hometown, where it has been brewed for over 600 years. After a tour of the city, we will ride the remaining 12 km to Hluboka nad Vltavou where we stay for the night. This little town is famous for its chateau. The neo-gothic Chateau Hluboka is perhaps the most romantic chateau in the Czech Republic. The second cycling day will take you through rolling forest and farmlands to Pisek, a town with a remarkable historical center and the oldest stone bridge in central Europe.

If you have had enough of cycling, you can choose to hike 30 km to Zvikov. The royal castle of Zvíkov stands high above the confluence of the rivers Vltava and Otava. From here you can take a boat to Orlik Castle. The voyage takes around 45 minutes. Or you can cycle from Pisek to Orlik (33 km / 20 miles). Our shuttle will take you from Orlik back to Prague (85 km /50 miles). The hiking or cycling distance on this day can be modified according to your wishes.

Itinerary

Day 1 - Prague - Cesky Krumlov, 170 km = 102 miles by AVE shuttle

The tour starts with the transfer from Prague to Cesky Krumlov. You will have a free evening to enjoy the best-preserved medieval town in Europe. In the Middle Ages, Cesky Krumlov Castle was the family seat of the most powerful Czech nobles - the Rosenbergs, the Lords of the Rose. The castle complex, the oldest section which dates as far back as the mid-13th century, is one of the largest in Europe. The Baroque theatre, which has been preserved along with the costumes, sets, and stage equipment, has nothing to equal it anywhere in the world. An impressive arched bridge connects the castle to the adjacent Baroque park

Day 2 - Canoeing on Vltava River in Cesky Krumlov, 2-30 km / 1-18 miles of sailing

You will be transferred to the starting point and then take a canoe or a raft back to Cesky Krumlov. You can choose a river trip from 2 to 30 km long. On a longer trip you have an opportunity to visit one of the oldest castles in South Bohemia - Rozmberk. We spend the night in Cesky Krumlov.

Day 4 - Hluboka nad Vltavou - Pisek, 50 km = 30 miles
