This tour covering 7 km (about 4,5 miles) will take you to explore the most popular natural attraction in Bohemian Switzerland National Park - The most romantic part of our trip will take place in the gorges of the Kamenice river. You will hike beneath rock ledges, through several tunnels, and across narrow bridges. So deep in the heart of Bohemian Switzerland, that some parts are only accessible on a small river boat. The cruise between the narrow sandstone walls is one of the most serene experiences and our favorite spot in the National park. Filmmakers used it to create the magical world of Narnia in their movie
Next stop will be delicious lunch included in your tour – exactly halfway through the day! Are you vegetarians, vegans, allergics or meat lovers and are you interested in national Czech cuisine?? We will treat you with the main course and a drink of your choice :). We will take you into a beautiful stone house that was built on a stream in 1905 by German workers. It was a gasworks on acetylene gas, which used to supply coal gas dozen nearby homes. Its original purpose but served only about twenty years. This newly renovated restaurant will surprise you with an amazing steampunk style interior, which is decorated with gears, rivets and a huge clock, whose gears are visible every hour with 40 seconds rotates accompanied by the sound mechanics.
After fulfilling lunch, its time to explore village Hrensko! A mysterious world of crystal-clear water, high rock walls covered with moss and divine tranquillity. This picturesque village of half-timbered houses is a perfect place for shopping souvenirs and also the place where the River Elbe leaves the Czech Republic.
The last point of interest is Bastei in the Saxon part of the National Park (Germany). The Bastei rock formation has plenty of viewpoints over the Elbe canyon on the right bank of the river Elbe. You can easily walk across the famous sandstone bridge that connects Bastei and visit ruins of old medieval Neurathen rock castle.
