Full description
Immerse yourself in the stunning natural surroundings of Prague on this day trip tour of Vitava, the national river of Czech Republic. The river snakes from the forest of South Bohemia and stretches through Prague where it divides the city to the left and right bank. The beauty of Vitava and the scenic views it meanders through has served as inspiration for many Czech artists and poets throughout history. From Prague, travel to Rozmberk nad Vltavou and admire the views of the countryside as you drive. Upon arrival at the river, learn from your guide everything you need to know about canoeing, and receive the necessary equipment for your trip. It doesn’t matter if you’re an expert or a pro, all levels of experience are welcomed on this tour. After the introduction, it's time to discover the beauty of the river on your canoe, a true summer ritual for any Czech local. Glide along the refreshing water and marvel at the amazing nature of the meandering river. Feel the warm rays of sun on your skin and the wind in your hair as you enjoy this unique perspective of the surroundings. The tour finishes in the fabulous Ceský Krumlov, a jewel and canoeing mecca of the Czech Republic, here you can spend the night or travel back to Prague with your guide.

After having spent several days in Prague, exploring the busy tourist sights and attractions, it was lovely to leave the city and take a breather from all of the hype and loudness. We were picked up at our accommodations and transported 2 hours to a remote location where time stood still. We were fitted and instructed as to how the day would unfold and then spent the day paddling and at times allowing the current of the Vltava River do the work for us. For lunch we enjoyed authentic, local cuisine and beer from one of the many places along the river who seemed to cater to the floating community. Several unique, floating bars provided little pitstops along the way, to ensure we all stayed well hydrated. The guides were very knowledgeable, friendly and shared stories and history lessons along the way. Seeing the little towns from the river perspective was such a neat experience. This was by far the highlight of our 10 day stay in the Czech Republic.
