    Our 4-some had two great rounds of golf at Golf Club CK last week, despite the heat wave the entire country was in. It was a bit cooler here than in the northern part of CZ. I'm a high handi-capper, so to me, this course provided a good challenge but was still fun enough to play and got me a couple pars and a birdie. There were a couple par 4's that were short enough to give everyone good birdie chances, but some pin-point play was required.

    Staff was friendly, spoke English and German, and the hotel right next to the clubhouse made our couple days in the area a great experience. The course is 10-15 minutes of an easy drive outside of Cesky Krumlov. I would recommend putting a long weekend together at this course, and then including an afternoon/evening in CK.

    I booked a one-hour ride with them through the tourist centre in cesky krumlov. They unfortunately only do one hour rides, although I would have preferred a longer duration.
    I got lost while trying to walk there, so had to resort to a taxi. The riding centre helped me to book a taxi when I called to explain to them that the taxi company were not understanding my instructions. They also helped me book a taxi for the way back as well.
    I think my experience with the ride was similar to that of the previous reviewer, in that the guide was not very communicative. I felt that was more due to not being comfortable in english rather than unfriendliness. I had two short stretches of trot during the hour-long ride. I was not asked for my previous riding proficiency or what I preferred even though it was a solo ride.
    The scenery itself was very beautiful and they were accommodating even though I started late.

    We live in Krumlov and wanted to do this for a long time. What a treat the carriage ride was!! Seeing the town and the surroundings in a slower pace, wave at the cars... The owner was SO nice and even brought champagne glasses for our beverage. Highly recommended for all!!!

    I recommend this tour with Karolina. Her knowledge about the history and culture of Česky Krumlov is wide as it is deep. We learned so many interesting things from our time with her last weekend. And she was always ready to answer our questions. She gave us tips about where to eat (gelato place was really good!) and made sure we knew how to get back to the bus station for the ride back to Prague.

    I have told my friends that we should include Česky Krumlov in our travel plans next year, staying a night or two as suggested by Karolina. Definitely, we would want her to be our guide! Thanks again, Karolina!

    This slow wooden raft trip so so much fun! Our guide gave us a great overview of the city and its history. It’s a lazy hour and charming was to see the city. We were even delivered beers halfway through. We went through two sets of rapids, which was fun!

    If the weather is nice and you're staying a night or 2 in charming Cesky Krumlov, going boating along the Vtlava River is awesome, fun, and beautiful experience! Even if you end falling the river like I did at the very end!

    For 900CZK/$40, you can rent a solo kayak and go downstream for about 15km, which takes about 2-4 hours depending on the river speed. The nature and wilderness of the Czech forests and Vtlava is gorgeous. The downstream flow makes for minimal effort to paddle. So wonderful, relaxing, and beautiful...until the very end in which I attempted the final ramp and capsized my kayak...doh! It was still fun anyway. At the end, they have van and trailer to pick up your kayak and drive you back to Cesky Krumlov. Its a lot of fun for only $40! They provide life jacket and a dry container, which safely protected my $500 camera! I recommend knowing how to swim, and also getting protective case for you smart phone, because you'll definitely want to take photos along the river, safely! Staff was extremely friendly!

    We booked the 3/4 hour two down the river and it was an amazing (and very calming) experience. Beautiful scenery and really getting immersed in the local area. The rafting team was super friendly and helpful and made this one of our best holiday experiences so far.

    Today we went rafting from Kemp Spoli in Cesky Krumlov through Cesky Krumlov to Kemp U Kuçeru.

    We booked this trip one day ago in the town centre of Cesky Krumlov where we were provided with some good advice!

    Today we started at 11:00 and were first guided to park the car for free at the campsite. After that i helped the employee of Ontario (Michael) offloading the raft of the bus. Before thd start of ouf trip we were pleased with the perfect explanation and tips and tools he provided us for a safe and comfortable trip.
    Michael even went into the water to help us along the first meters of our trip...

    During the trip we had several obstacles to overcome and we made a few stops to eat and drink. Along the Moldau riverside there are several BBQ spots and places where good food and drinks can be bought.

    After 5 hours we came to the endstation of our trip and I calles Michael. He was already waiting for us and directly helped us getting the boat and our gear out of the water.
    After putting the raft back on the top of the van Michael took us back to the start of our trip at Kemp Spoli. We were safely driven back and Michael told us some touristic information during the ride.

    We are very pleased and thankful for the personnel of Ontario and Michael in advance for providing us a perfect rafting trip during our holiday in the Lipno region.

    Thanks very much!!

    Great fun, only a few little rapids - enough to make you want to do more!! We did the one hour tour as we were a little unsure how the kids would go, but they loved it, even my 16 year old daughter with Down Syndrome (who sometimes is not the most enthusiastic!). Great family activity at a really cheap price. Highly recommend!

    We visited 2W on our last trip to Český Krumlov and they were great! We are a family of 4 and we rented a raft to take an hour's paddle down the river. The service was great, friendly and efficient, and we had a great time! Recommended! Good English and German spoken.

    We rented a 2-person raft and paddled from Cesky Krumlov to Zlatá Koruna, a 15 km paddle that took us just under 4 hours. It is just one of the many self-guided trips of varying lengths that Surfsport offers. Along the way we went through 2 scenic horseshoe bends of the upper Vltava River within town and then we were out in nature for the remainder of the trip. The price was very reasonable and it included all the equipment and both the ride from the shop to the upstream paddle drop-off point and the ride back to the shop. This was a very scenic and relaxing trip that included easy slides through the runways alongside the 3 weirs we passed. The staff was very friendly, and the pick-up was prompt when we called after completing the run. Altogether we had a great morning that was a lovely addition to our visit to this beautiful part of the Czech Republic.
