The TOP 3 Highlights Of Bohemian & Saxon Switzerland
The Pravcicka Gate, a boat ride on the Gorges of Kamenice river, and the Bastei bridge. The best possible itinerary in one day.
Don’t want to compromise? Ready to see all three of the TOP highlights in the Bohemian Switzerland and Saxon Switzerland national parks in just one day?
Do you want to tick the Pravcicka Gate stone arch and the Gorges of Kamenice river boat ride in Bohemian Switzerland (Czechia), and stunning views from the Bastei Bridge in Saxony (Germany) off your bucket list? Then there is no better tour itinerary than this one!
Get ready for a long day! You will start at 7:30 a.m. and finish in Prague around 8:00 p.m. in order to pack all these sites in
After you are picked up from your hotel by our knowledgeable guide, you will ride to the Bohemian Switzerland village of Hrensko to start your hike toward the monumental Pravcicka Gate; the symbol of this section of the national park. Thanks to the early start you will be one of the first to reach the gate and marvel at it from long-distance viewpoints.
Next you will set off for a hike along the lush green Gorges of the Kamenice river for a short boat ride transporting you through the most precious part of the forest - the First Zone. There you might be lucky enough to spot bright blue kingfishers, trouts, dippers, and other fauna when walking and gliding through the Wild Gorge. Surrounded by sandstone pillars and rock walls this will be the time to enjoy peace, silence, and the harmony of nature.
To recharge your batteries our guide will take you to an amazing lunch spot called “U Forta”, right on the trail. This local restaurant serves traditional Czech dishes from organic farmers and producers in the region. You can order anything from the menu including a drink and a main course. Don’t worry, your guide will help you choose from all the delicious options available. The menu includes vegetarian and vegan options as well. You’ll experience VIP treatment afforded only to guests of Northern Hikes, skipping the lines and cutting down on wait time, at the best restaurant around!
Once you’re stomach is full, the Bastei in Germany awaits. This stone bridge, towering high above the river Elbe canyon (the deepest sandstone canyon in Europe!), features unforgettable views of sandstone towers dotted all around. The uniqueness of this place makes it the most visited natural site in the whole of Germany. You can’t miss it!
Already excited? Eager to book? Just remember - this tour is recommended only for those who are at a superb fitness level and travelers who can handle a full day of hiking with a high energy output.
