Description

Make the most of your trip and admire some of the most spectacular wonders that mother nature has created. On this full-day tour, which should be on the bucket list of every nature lover, visit Bohemian Switzerland National Park, a place that has been certified as a ‘European Destination of Excellence’ thanks to its exceptional beauty. Throughout the day, visit the region’s most idyllic locations, enjoy walks and moderate hikes, dine on local cuisine, and capture incredible photos. The day begins with pickup from your accommodation in Prague and heads to Bohemian Switzerland National Park. Upon arrival visit the most popular natural attraction in the park, Pravcicka Gate, which is Europe’s largest sandstone arch, hidden deep in the mysterious woodland. Take some time to admire the beauty of the arch, which stands at an impressive 21 meters tall and was used as a filming location for the movie Narnia. Once you’ve worked up a bit of an appetite it’s time for lunch, served in a historical stone house. The restaurant, which was originally built in 1905 by German workers to supply coal gas to local homes, now boasts a newly renovated interior with a trendy steam punk inspired style. Enjoy a delicious traditional Czech meal and learn a little about local cuisine while you eat.  The last stop of the day is the Bastei rock formation, which sits in the German Saxony side of the park. The Bastei offers an array of breathtaking view points over the Elbe Canyon on the banks of the River Elbe. From here, walk across the fascinating sandstone bridge that connects Bastei and explore the ruins of an old Neurathen rock castle. At the end of an unforgettable day of adventures, sit back and enjoy a well-deserved rest on the return journey to Prague.
