The Pravcicka Gate, boat ride in the Gorges of Kamenice river and the Bastei bridge. The best possible itinerary in one day.
Are you ready to make no compromise and see all the TOP 3 highlights of both national parks in just one day ?
Do you wish to cross off from the bucket list the best higlights such as The Pravcicka Gate stone arch, boat ride in the Gorges of Kamenice river (Czechia) and stunning views from the Bastei bridge in the Saxony (Germany) ? Well, the itinerary of this tour simply can’t get any better.
Be ready for a long day! You will start at 7:30 a.m. and return to Prague around 8 p.m. in order to make it all.
After you are picked up by our knowledgeable guide, you will ride to the Bohemian Switzerland’s village of Hrensko to start your hike towards the monumental Pravcicka Gate, symbol of this part of the national park. Thanks to early start you will be one of the first to reach the Gate and marvel from it’s long-distance viewpoints.
Next you will set off to a hike through lush green Gorges of the Kamenice river for a short boat ride taking you through the most precious part of the forest - the First Zone. You might be lucky enough to spot a bright blue kingfisher, trouts, dippers and other fauna when walking and sailing through the Wild Gorge. Surrounded by sandstone pillars and rock walls this will be time to enjoy peace and silence, the harmony of nature.
To refill your batteries the guide will take you to amazing lunch spot called “U Forta”, right on the trail, a local restaurant serving traditional Czech dishes from organic farmers and producers settled in the region. You can order anything from the menu, one drink and one main course and no worries, the guide will help you choose from plenty of options. These include vegetarian and vegan meals as well. It’s the best restaurant around and only with Northern Hikes you can enjoy a VIP table reservation, cutting on waiting time.
When you are already blasted away by the scenery all around and with your stomach filled, Bastei in Germany awaits you. This stone bridge towering high above the river Elbe canyon (deepest sandstone canyon in Europe!) features unforgettable views towards sandstone towers laid all around. Uniqueness of this place makes it the most visited natural site in the whole Germany. You just can’t miss it.
