Find out why the nature and culture of Bohemia are so highly regarded
Bohemia is one of the most charming regions in the Czech Republic, where rolling hills topped by castles and rock formations millions of years old line your road. The Bohemian Nature and Culture Tour takes you right into the heart of Bohemia and allows you to fully appreciate the beauty of this unhurried region.
Begin in Prague, a magnetic city defined by historical monuments and unmatched architecture. You’ll be whisked away to Bohemian paradise, driving along to the Prachovské Skály rocks that tower up to the sky, walking up to find the expansive views near Sobotka, and strolling down into the verdant valleys near Hrubá Skála. The castles infuse every view with a dreamy charm, and the villages you rest in are romantic and full of folklore. Stop into garnet jewellers, explore museums and galleries, and effortlessly blend nature and culture in the best way on the Bohemian Nature and Culture Tour.

After landing in Prague, transfer into Bohemia in the Czech Republic, one of the prettiest regions in the country. Once you arrive, you’re free to explore at your leisure, perhaps finding an ice cream or coffee shop (both of which tend to be delicious in the Czech Republic).
Settle in at the hotel and enjoy your first night here.
