Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between this easy tour and your moderate tour called 2 Countries in One Day?
During this tour you can relax more and enjoy the national park without long hikes. The difference between the tours is that you can choose whether to go up to the Pravčická gate, which involves an hour's ascent and climb a few steep stairs, or on the contrary, you prefer to skip boating, which is easier to walk, as you still walk on a pleasant road around the river. Instead, you spend more time in the middle of the national park in picturesque village Hřensko, which is great for an easy walks with souvenir shopping.

Just simply dress based on the weather forecast. Remember only, that it is often cooler and wetter up the Bohemian Switzerland hills so bring extra layer.
