The TOP 3 Highlights Of Bohemian & Saxon Switzerland

 | Northern Hikes - Czech tours

The best choice for a day visit. Pravcicka Gate, Gorges of Kamenice, Bastei bridge. 3 highlights in ultimate & active experience.

Ready to see all three of the TOP highlights in the Bohemian - Saxon Switzerland NP in just one day? Hands down the best possible itinerary for a one day visit.

Your itinerary is Pravcicka Gate stone arch + Gorges of Kamenice river boat ride in Bohemian Switzerland (Czechia) + stunning views from the Bastei Bridge in Saxony (Germany). There is really no better itinerary for a one day visit! 

Get ready for a long day. You will start at 7:45 a.m. and finish back in Prague or Dresden around 8:00 p.m. in order to pack all these sites in.

After you are picked up from your hotel by our local guide from the NP area, you will ride to the Bohemian Switzerland village of Hrensko to start your hike towards the monumental Pravcicka Gate; the symbol of this section of the national park. Thanks to early start you will be one of the first to reach the Gate and marvel at it from cliff-like 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. 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”. This local restaurant serves traditional Czech dishes from organic farmers and producers in the region. You can order ANYTHING (yes!) from the menu (a  drink and a main course). 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 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. Some describe it as an other-wordly experience. 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. That said, the reward for your excellent condition and eagerness is simply an ultimate experience.
