River Rafting / Canoeing Tour in Bohemian Switzerland and Bastei Bridge in Saxon Switzerland Germany
Interested in rafting, canoeing or even paddleboarding on one of the major rivers of Central Europe? Come and join us for an epic fun day in Bohemian Switzerland National Park, combined with exploring the most popular spots in Saxon Switzerland NP – Bastei Bridge in Germany.
The Czech river Elbe is excellent for easy and relaxing trips on a raft or canoe, especially during spring and summer months. We start our water fun from the city Děčín (only 1,5 hrs drive from Prague) through Europe’s deepest sandstone canyon in Bohemian Switzerland full of bizarre rock formations. Explore graceful rock landscape and the romantic gorges with scenic valleys. Following the easy flow of the river and simply drifting along with a canoe or raft between the narrow sandstone walls is one of the most serene experiences and our favorite hidden gems in the National park.
For 2,5 hrs rafting or canoeing trip from Děčín to the centre of the national park, we provide plastic, durable, double-seated canoes and 7-9 seated rafts with paddles and lifevests. We take care of snacks and plenty of water on board :).
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 :). This newly renovated restaurant will surprise you not only with an amazing dishes, but also with a beautiful 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.
The last point of interest (only 30min drive from our lunch point) Bastei bridge 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 walk across the famous sandstone bridge that connects Bastei and explore ruins of old Neurathen rock castle from 12th century.
