Romantic Boat Ride and Bastei Bridge Tour

The most romantic part of our trip will take place in the Gorges of the Kamenice River. Walk 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 riverboat. The cruise between the narrow sandstone walls takes 30min and is one of the most serene experiences.

After that, you will visit Bastei Bridge in the Saxon part of the National Park (Germany). The Bastei rock formation has plenty of stunning viewpoints over the Elbe canyon on the right bank of the river Elbe. Walk across the famous sandstone bridge and explore the ruins of the old Neurathen rock castle from the 13th century.

We will drive you back to your hotel in Prague around 6 pm. Your camera will be full of beautiful photos, great memories, and one more Bohemia Adventure story to tell.

Do you feel like this is too much in One Day for you or someone in your group?

No worries! If you or someone from your group would like to join this tour but doesn’t want to hike all 10km, let them choose our Easy Walking Tour. You can still travel together and on the way, after consultation with our guide, decide which one of our attractions to skip (either Pravcicka Gate or Boat Ride). Instead, you can spend more time in the middle of the Bohemian Switzerland National Park – in picturesque village Hrensko. It is a perfect place for easy walks along the river and great for souvenir shopping. Lunch and Bastei Bridge in Germany are always common.
