Full description

Leave the city behind and travel by canoe through 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 the late 20th century. 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 flat water before you start. Your guide will be there for you any time you need assistance, though it is unlikely you will need their help after the first few strokes of your paddle.

Going down the river takes about 4 – 5 hours including a few little breaks to breathe the 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 rocky terrain with some outstanding stone-made viaducts along the way. 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.

    Great day out last Thursday. We were picked up from our hotel on time and headed down to the river. When we got there, we had about 10 minutes to get ourselves ready and then we were off. There were 3 tricky parts on the river but they were fun - almost like rafting! Our guide was fantastic and he was always engaging with us.

    It was a super great trip! The guides picked us up on time in front of the apartment and after about 1.5 hours we arrived at the starting point after picking up other participants. After a short instruction and test drive we started with the actual route! On the water we were in a group of 8 with 2 guides. The two guides were really great :) very nice, courteous, informative and up for a joke :) the route, or rather the landscape is unparalleled with a very idyllic river course through a rustic landscape! absolutely recommendable! The guides recommended a change of clothes, which was also required ;) This activity will definitely be booked again on the next trip to Prague!

    As announced, Monika picked us up at our apartment. The day before we got the info again by SMS. Since the originally planned tour could not be carried out due to high water, an alternative tour was carried out. The tour was in a beautiful area with lots of nature. Monika tried very hard. Only the situation at lunch was not as described. We had 180 kroner available per person, there was no dish on the menu under 170 kroner. Prices were more like 200K+ drink. Unfortunately we had to pay extra here. It's a shame, because the train ride couldn't take place because of the alternative route. In total we were on the water for 3 hours.
