Bohemian Switzerland Icefalls
Miraculous icefalls & icicles hidden between sandstone rock formations. Active winter hike covering 6 miles (9 KM) in snow ! Available only in winter season on selected days. Rare offer.
Every year we're looking forward to this opportunity. Waiting and waiting... And then finally ! A winter comes to Bohemian Switzerland and we can offer you this active outdoor tour. Discover so called "Brtniky icefalls" hidden deep in the national park's forest. Witness rare scenery which does not occur every year but only now and then.
Our guide will take you through sandstone valleys and show you the right path. There, on many sites you can observe how water dipping through the sandstone rock creates amazing ice formations. You will walk in snow, breathe virgin fresh air and absorb the tranqulity of pine forest. One of the best things ? The crowds are gone in winter and the national park is definitely NOT busy during this time. Maybe you'll have the scenery just for you. See the frozen beauty of colorful icefalls with your own eyes.
Of course one needs some extra energy during such a day so we will treat you with another highlight - lunch in a small local brewery. They craft the "Falkenstejn" beer there and offer delicious local czech cuisine with very traditional meals to taste. It's where we finished our plans when composing this trip together :)
The tour is designed as an active day out and we recommend it for all who are used to walk in snow and have some basic hiking experience. If this fits you, then it is something you should definitely sign up for.
