We had the honor to be the first guests to do the brand new Rafting and E-bike Tour and it was absolutely amazing. Our guide Marek was fantastic, very informative and with an excellent sense of humor. Rafting on the peaceful and quiet Laba river was a bliss, We had delicious lunch in an old beautiful restaurant right at the river bank. The cycling part was also amazingly beautiful, following the river valleys, and especially when cycling through the forest. We stopped often to take pictures and admire the wonders of nature. Everything was perfectly organised, Marek picked us up at the hotel and dropped us off there after, which was very convenient, and even took us to a local brewery on the way back to buy some beer, which is also delicious. Thank you for a wonderful day!

Our family of 3 went on a private tour of Bohemian Switzerland just a few week ago. It was a wonderful day!

Northern Hikes was very responsive and flexible when we were planning on what to do with our day. They had great recommendations, but allowed us the freedom to determine where we went. We ended up making a change on the day of the trip. and Pavla, our guide, was totally accommodating.

Pavla was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, and we very much enjoyed our time together.

When we travel to cities (e.g., Prague), we also like to get out of the city and see the natural surroundings and get some exercise. Northern Hikes and Pavla helped us to have a great day!

Me and my sister had an amazing day during the easy walking tour operated by Northern Hikes. Everything was taken care of and our tourguide Marek was very knowledgable and great company during our trip. This tour was exactly what I wanted it to be since the places we visited are impossible to reach with public transport and I have always wanted to visit. Overall a great day and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants a beautiful day out in nature, whether you are an experienced hiker or a novice.

We loved it! Our guide Martin was fun, knowledgeable, his English was great and he clearly loves what he is doing. Each activity on the day long trip was to a special spot with things to see and good hiking to get there. The meal was very good and coffee later was spot on. These gorgeous places are so close to Prague so if you’d like to get out into nature and take a break from the castles, churches and beer, then I would strongly recommend Northern Hikes. A highlight of our visit so far!

We had a great experiences with the travel guide provided by Mr Maret from Northern Hike. He provided us with very informative details. Generally, he was a very patient, nice, and friendly tour guide. I strongly recommend others to get the services from this company if you want to have an awesome trip to both saxon Switzerland national park and Tisa Rocks Labyrinth.

If you’re a nature lover and you enjoy long walks - this is the excursion for you. We had the lovely tour guide Pavla and she was full of so much knowledge and information about not only the background of the parks but general history of Prague & Germany. This is a full day excursion with 3 separate hikes that capture stunning views, great altitudes & 2 different countries. The best experience and this tour did not disappoint & it’s value for money. I wish I could do it all over again! Pavla had great energy which was present throughout the whole day and always had an answer to every question. Thank you Northern Hikes for the best day!!!

What a wonderful day to spend a day of our Prague trip! Pavla was an excellent guide, and the hikes were beautiful! March is a great time to visit, we didn’t see many people during both hikes, and lunch was fantastic! Highly recommend if you are looking to do something outside of the city for the day.

We visited the pravicka brana and baseti bridge with tour guide Marek. The experience was incredible. We were promptly picked up from our hotel in a comfortable van. The night before the office staff confirmed our tour guide and all of the details. Marek was very knowledgeable and super helpful. The hike itself was beautiful and super fun. Not very physically demanding. The lunch spot Marek selected was delicious. Highly recommend this excursion and this company. Would do it again !!!
