A wonderful day experiencing the beauty of Bohemian Switzerland National Park. We couldn't have asked for a better guide, Paja was so enthusiastic about nature it was intoxicating.
We signed up for the trip through the Northern Hikes website, thoroughly recommend this as there's much more information on their site! We ended up being the only two on the trip that day so essentially had a private tour and it was BRILLIANT!
I had been concerned whether the climbs would be too steep however as we regularly walk in the Lake District this was a manageable hike.
It was split into three walks, the longest being the morning walk ~8km in distance. The views of the Pravcicka Gate were just exquisite and Paja's knowledge of the surroundings was something else. After we completed the first hike we made our way to the restaurant for lunch, the beer was local and wonderful and the food was by far some of the best we had tried whilst in Prague.
After lunch we made our way down towards the Gorges of Kamenice for a hike of around 5km. This was a much cooler walk in the forest as you drop quite low. The walk includes a boat ride which provides some spectacular sights.
The final hike was across the border into Germany which was a 30-40 minute drive, a good rest after all that walking!
The Bastei Bridge was a fabulous experience, it takes around 2km to cover the site but this is more about taking in the views. Paja's knowledge of Bastei was incredible, other tourists stopped to listen to her as she explained about the medieval castle that once stood on the site.
We took our walking boots for this hike but I feel we could have managed with walking trainers or similar. A jumper was definitely required for the hikes later in the day. Toilets were available at Pravcicka Gate, the restaurant and at Bastei.
Overall this was such a wonderful day for us, I loved learning about another country especially in the depth of detail that Paja described it to us. I would 100% recommend this trip.

Hello and thank you so much for such a glowing review :) We're always delighted to have smiling and positive-minded travelers like you. Our core value is to work with guides who grew up in the region of the national park or have a profound knowledge of it. And I am very happy to see our guests are noticing... This is how a truly local experience should look like :) Thank you very much for recommending us and I would be really happy to see you back one day joining another tour of ours. Or just giving you tips how to wander around and explore more of Bohemian Switzerland NP. Best wishes, Vitek - Founder & Owner at Northern Hikes

What a wonderful day experiencing the natural beauty of Bohemia and Saxony! Pavla, our excellent guide and driver from Northern Hikes, shared her knowledge and passion as we walked and boated through Kamenice Gorge, toured the quaint village of Schmilke, and surveyed the rock formations and historic bridge at Bastei. A gorgeous international park in the heart of Europe, not to be missed. If you want a change of pace from city touring but don’t want to drive yourself (and fight parking situations similar to American national parks 😳), then we highly recommend Pavla and Northern Hikes in Praha!

I can fully recommend this day trip to anyone interested in taking a day off from the city and explore the nature.

The scenery was amazing, the hike was challenging, but manageable (definitely not recommended if you are not used to hiking or not active in other ways), and our guide Pavla was incredibly nice.

While the price is not the cheapest, it was worth every penny, and the included lunch was one of the best I had during my Prague trip.

If you are already thinking about going to this national park, and reading this review, do yourself a davor and do it; you will not regret it!

Dear Adrian, thank you for recommending Northern Hikes! The TOP3 tour is indeed great choice for a bit experience hikers, like you and I am glad to see you've enjoyed it. We also enjoyed the day with you :-) Very happy to read about your lunch experience. We are constantly monitoring the restaurants around but still haven't found any better than the one where we go for 8 years in a row now :-) Great Czech cuisine is guaranteed. Thank you once more for this trip's praise and recommendation and hope you'll enjoy another great tours during your travels, not just in Czechia. Take care! Vitek - Founder & Owner at Northern Hikes

One of the best experiences in our life! The Top 3 Highlights of Bohemian and Saxon Switzerland.

It all began when I first contacted Northern Hikes via the facebook page of them. From the first moment, they supported and answered to all our questions. They even gave us advice about how we could prepare ourselves for the hike! Vitek thank you for everything mate!

One day before the hike, they sent us the last information needed, the weather forecast, the name and a photo of our guide and what clothing should we choose!

The Big Day! Marek or guide arrived at exactly the time they had informed us, he offered us some snacks but from the first moment he made us feel comfortable and safe! For the whole hike offered us the best advice, took us a million photos and I knew that I had a person with me who cared about our security. Thank you for everything Marek, we really wish you the best!

The hike was long, around 20km but the sand-based paths made it pretty easy for our bodies, don’t be afraid of it, the beauty of the place makes you feel like you are in the middle of a movie scene and elves will jump out of a tree! Magic!

For the whole day we didn’t pay anything extra, Marek even paid the fee for the toilets needed in a hotel close to Bastei Bridge.

Summing up, Northern Hikes offered us a quality tour, a lifetime experience and a day that we cannot find anything that went wrong.

Professionalism and love for the natural beauty of their country! Congratulations Northern Hikes!

Hello again and thank you so very much! Such an honest and friendly review always lifts up our spirit in these trying times. We really do try to do as much as we can for your to enjoy the tour :-). You're most welcome for that help with organization and preparations for the trip. It is always a pleasure. And I am really glad that you've found the scenery as beautiful as expected and the length of the hike adequate. Marek, our most senior guide enjoyed the day as well. It's always great to hike with open minded and friendly travelers. Thank you for visiting the NP and thank you for your trust in our service. I am immensely glad we stood up to your expectations. Best regards, Vitek, Founder & Owner of Northern Hikes

We were thrilled by the outstanding day-trip tour from Prague to Bohemian Switzerland and Saxon Switzerland national parks that Northern Hikes arranged and led for us. Vitek and Eva did an excellent job of communicating promptly and helpfully with us to set up the tour, and Martin, our guide, was warm, personable, knowledgeable, well-organized and also an excellent communicator. We very much enjoyed his guiding, and our conversations with him about Prague and the Czech Republic. He took care of everything, with no surprises. Because we booked a private tour, we were able to create an itinerary geared to our specific interests and needs, including some special added touches. In fact, in addition to what we had arranged with the office, Martin was incredibly perceptive and thoughtful, and went the extra mile to include some things that made our experience even more memorable. We have many wonderful memories from this tour. We give Northern Hikes our highest possible recommendation.

We booked our trip like the last day before attending, and the very minute our guide followed up with an email about the trip, so first we were kind of scared if we are in for a scam, but this experience was overall one of the best things we experienced during our trip to Prague.

Easily we started the day with a pick-up from our hotel somewhere around 7.30 and guide wasn't even late, even that we booked the trip last minute.

Then we drove to the first destination and had a little hike to the arch which was stunning and a bit haunting. Right after we had a dinner in an amazing restaurant, with traditional Czech food.

Next two destinations were breathtaking, but I'll leave the reader for surprise :D

Amazing trip, would recommend to anyone, because the length of walking wasn't that much and the guide was just amazing, told us everything about the sites and didn't took care of everyone in the group

As people have mentioned, we did have an adjusted itinerary due to the fires. However, we were absolutely thrilled with our day. The locations were stunning, the restaurant felt very authentic and the van ride very safe. All thumbs up! I won't hesitate to recommend this to anyone making the trip to Prague!

I really enjoyed this outing. We visited some pretty impressive lookout spots where you could see far out into the countryside in every direction, and we hiked through some beautiful forests. It was nice getting outside of the city and seeing some more rural parts of the Czech Republic. Lenka was a great host! She was waiting outside of my building right on time and her nice smile and constant good attitude made the trip more fun. On the drive she explained the history and industry of towns we passed and also about some parts of Czech culture, like keeping country houses and how that practice developed. She also told about the different rock features we saw and some of the folklore about them. We only hiked around 8 miles, but much of that was pretty steep, so I would only recommend it for someone in reasonably good shape. Overall I had a really nice time and I'm glad that I went!

My sister and I traveled to Prague to visit my college son who was studying abroad and we wanted to spend a day exploring the gorgeous countryside in the Czech Republic! We decided on a private tour so that we could go at our own speed and not have to worry about potentially slowing anyone else down (I have a bit of a tricky knee sometimes). From the initial booking inquiry, to the conclusion of our day, our party of 3 felt very well taken care of! The booking coordinator took great pains to work with us to design a trip that met all of our wishes, even providing multiple options to consider as the recent fire put a few wrinkles in our original itinerary.

Our fabulous guide Lenka, showed up promptly and was an absolute delight to be with!

My husband and I had an absolutely amazing time on this trip! The hike was an easy 12 mile walk through the mountains with an amazing Czech lunch at a local village restaurant about half way though the hike. With beer! Marek was a pleasure to hike with, sharing lots of facts about the area and the Czech culture. 100% recommend this trip!
