About us

Scenic tours crafted by true locals

Northern Hikes is your gateway to the Bohemian-Saxon Switzerland National Parks. Being locals to the NP we were the first company to offer day trips for English speaking visitors. Since then we maintain and improve our leading position. While striving to provide an eco-friendly tours in small groups, our tours are fun and we treat you like our friend. With a casual atmosphere of the day you will feel good.

To make your experience more intense and authentic, we cooperate with the local community (restaurants, bio farmers, info centers, town councils) and therefore we can offer customized conditions and real visits to a Czech Republic countryside, something Beyond an ordinary Sightseeing you are used to :)

We also participate in the so called „Destination fund Bohemian Switzerland“, a community of local enterpreneurs, villages, towns, hotels, restaurants and other subjects with a common aim to develop the area of the national park in a sustainable way. Part of the money you spend on your tour goes back to this fund and the rest stays inside the region.

Our team grew up in the Bohemian Switzerland region. We spent many years hiking through the park and it‘s still our passion. With us you will see sights familiar to locals and unknown to you. Escape touristy Prague and experience something beyond ordinary sightseeing. Enrich your Czech Republic‘s visit with an unique experience. Come and join our tours !

Vitek Northernhikes


Founder & Director

I was born and raised in the Bohemian Switzerland national park area. Decin is my hometown. Few years ago I quit my corporate job and founded our hiking agency Northern Hikes - out of love for hiking and nature. To do a job that has sense of purpose. I have 21+ years of experience travelling within the region. My aim is to show you that it's not just Prague what you should visit during your stay in the Czech Republic.

Senior Tour Guide

I was also born in the Decin - town known as "the gate to the Bohemian Switzerland". Having 15 years of experience in travel industry on cruise ships all around the world, I always wanted to come back one day. Now I am back tour guiding in my home region to show you the best scenic sites, rock formations, deep gorges and scenic viewpoints all around the national park.

Senior Tour Guide

I grew up in an ordinary town between Prague and national park so since I was little, I tried to escape to nature every time I could. I have always loved rocks and hills and in Bohemian Switzerland I have found paradise. Spending much time outdoors, my passion gradually converted into a work of a tour guide so I can show you places familiar to me and yet unknown to you. I also love to climb and as this national park is the area where rock climbing in the Czech Republic started, it is  a place which attracts me like a steel to magnet.

I spent most of my childhood in the are of the national park and its surroundings. Enjoying and exploring the beauties of both Bohemian and Saxon Switzerland has enriched me with many great experiences which would be pity not to share with other nature enthusiasts. Therefore, I decided for the work of a tour guide in a company of young passionate outdoorsmen who are open to new and unconventional adventures in the national park.

Tour Guide

I got to know the area of the CS Swiss National Park through rock climbing. The unique sandstone rock formations provide the opportunity for a very special kind of rock climbing experience with the added bonus of breathtaking views, wilderness atmosphere and the feeling of transience as the ever-changing rock are slowly weathering away. I like to witness the daiy disguises of the enviroment with the pleasure of sharing it with our guests.

Jakub Northernhikes


Executive Manager

Hiking is a national sport of the Czechs. Thanks to this I know many breathtaking sites of the national parks since my childhood. Although I was born in the highest mountains of the Czech Republic (Krkonose) and not directly in the Bohemian Switzerland, it has fascinated me with its sandstone scenery. It is hard to find anything similar across the countries I have already traveled (many :). I took this chance and became member of a friendly team to lead it into future challanges.

In Northern Hikes we work closely with travel brands,bloggers and influencers. We are not big fans of the clasic old marketing mix. Our inovative approach gives me opportunity to meet new travelers in person and stay in touch with news from the travel field. Social media is my core hobby, especially Instagram.

Being born almost inside the Bohemian Switzerland national park area, I enjoyed its beautiful landscapes since early childhood. Grateful to be connected to this wonderful place even through my job, I confirm your reservations, manage our tour schedules and answer your inquieries. And I keep returning to the national park all year round, it never gets old.

Kristina Northernhikes


Tour Coordinator

Like our founder Vit, and TG Marek, I was born in Decin, and weaned by the beauty of Elbe Sandstones area. Having worked for 3 years as a sales representative left me longing for a dream job that would really satisfy me. Then I joined the Northern Hikes team, happy that I was able to connect with my beloved home region once again. Now, when I communicate with our guests, my love for travelling helps me understand their passion to explore new horizons and lovely places like the Bohemian Switzerland undoubtedly is.
