Highlights

Explore the unique beauty of Bohemia on foot

Begin and end your tour in Prague, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, full of Gothic architecture.

Hike alongside rock formations dating back nearly 100 million years, enjoying an exceptionally unique landscape.

Trace river valleys and rolling meadows where castles and chateaus dot the horizon.

Sleep in welcoming little villages, seemingly unchanged by the passing of time.

Bohemia is one of the most idyllic regions in the Czech Republic, where rolling hills topped by castles and rock formations millions of years old line your trails. The Walking Bohemian Paradise tour takes you right into the heart of Bohemia and allows you to explore at your own pace, soaking up 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 the Renaissance town of Jičín, your gateway to Bohemia. Explore the Prachovské skály rocks, snap photos of the expansive views near Sobotka, and walk down into the verdant valleys near Hrubá Skála. The castles infuse every view with a dreamy charm, and the villages you’ll settle into have held onto all the history and culture of the past. If you want to experience Bohemia, the Walking Bohemian Paradise tour is for you!
