Where Do our Self Guided Walking Holidays in Czechia Take Place?
Our Czech Republic walking holidays include three distinct and beautiful regions. Most of the itineraries finish in gorgeous Prague, where you can spend one or more extra nights before or after your trip.
The Bohemian Paradise
The Bohemian Paradise is a picturesque hilly region situated 90 km north of Prague. It combines unique nature, sandstone rock cities, spectacular landscapes, remarkable historical sights, and rural architecture. The area is included in the UNESCO’s list of Geo-parks. Our Bohemian Paradise walking tour combines a visit to beautiful Prague with hiking in this fascinating region.
The Krkonoše or Giant Mountains are a mountain range located in the north of the Czech Republic and the south-west of Poland, part of the Sudeten mountain system. The Czech-Polish border, which divides the historical regions of Bohemia and Silesia, runs along the central ridge. The highest peak, Sněžka is the Czech Republic’s highest point with an elevation of 1,603 metres. Large areas of the mountains are designated national parkland and offer a network of well-marked hiking trails. Our Czech Republic walking holiday in the Krkonoše will let you experience this gem hidden in the heart of Europe.
The Elbe Sandstone Mountains (also called Saxon Switzerland) are one of the most beautiful regions in Germany, located just a few miles from Dresden and expanding into Czechia. They were named by two Swiss painters who were impressed by the similarity of the area to the landscapes of their own country. You will see bizarre rock formations, walk through ancient woods and picturesque valleys alongside the winding Elbe River. In the Romantic Era, many painters from Switzerland and England discovered this region with its beautiful wilderness.
