THE BEST of 2 Countries in 1 Day: Top Highlights of Bohemian and Saxon Switzerland. Enjoy the most photogenic natural creations of the National Park, hike to the Narnia movie spots, take a boat ride between sandstone formations.

Admire the most spectacular wonders that mother nature created all in one place. You are about to experience full day trip, that should be on a bucket list of every nature lover. We´ll take you in a small group of people to the place that has been certified as a ‘European Destination of Excellence’ by the European Commission because of its exceptional beauty. You will be guided to the very best spots, experience the local cuisine, enjoy walks and moderate hikes in the most preserved part of the National park and take dozens of pictures while exploring our natural heritage.

We will take a walk to the most popular natural attraction in Bohemian Switzerland National Park – Pravcicka Gate, Europe’s largest sandstone arch. Filmmakers used it to create the magical world of Narnia in their movie. Mysterious, hidden deep in the woods, the impressive symbol of the National park stands 21 meters tall, leaving all the spectators in admiration. 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.

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 walk across the famous sandstone bridge that connects Bastei and explore ruins of old Neurathen rock castle.

I searched for tours in Southern Bohemia… some offered the gate and the bridge, or the gorge boat trip and the gate or bridge, but I couldnt decide what to choose because I wanted to see them all! I thought all my christmases has come at one when I found Bohemia Adventures, where you could see all three sites in one day, for a very similar cost to the other tours with two activities.
My luck got even better, my driver Thomas and guide Moris were not only really knowledgeable, they were super fun, accommodating and excellent photographers for your insta pics . My luck kept on improving when the four other people cancelled, highly likely due to having too good a time at the Prague breweries leaving me on a private tour. Moris was incredibly accommodating tailoring the tour to my tastes and we had a ball. The tour is a finely run machine, pick ups and drop offs were seamless allowing you to really maximize your day without feeling rushed or that you were missing anything. And the traditional lunch was delicious too. I cant recommend this tour highly enough and am so glad I didnt have to choose to only do two of the options because each experience was as magical as each other. Do yourself a favour and book this tour, your insta will thank you for it!

We took a tour with Vladka (Morris) and Jaroslav at beginning of July. It was amazing!!! Highly recommend 1) this tour, 2) this company. The tour allows you to experience the best of Bohemian and Saxon Switzerland: you can see it all – Pravcicka Gate, Bastei Bridge, and cruise along the Kamenice Goerge. Everything is very well thought out (e.g. you go down a hill to get to the cruse while we saw lots of people being exhausted climbing the very steep hill up. or the starting time of the trip – you get to Pravcicka Gate before the crowds arrive -a huge advantage of being in a small group (and you do not get same experience when there are too many people around). Both Vladka and Jaroslav are so friendly, energetic, happy, knowledgeable guides that your spirit is elevated just by being with them!!! You get an opportunity to ask whatever questions you want (history, nature, life of Czechs, food, etc.). Their passion for these parks is amazing! If we had not taken this trip we would have left Czech Rep only seeing cities and not knowing that it has such beautiful nature!

At short notice, we contacted Mooris about a day trip out of Prague to Bohemian and Saxon Switzerland. We were picked up the following day at the agreed time of 7.30am by our guides Suzanna and Straun and set off on the “Best of 2 countries” tour. We had a wonderful adventure , were well looked after and enjoyed the company and knowledge of Suzanna and Straun. Their local knowledge also ensured that our time was efficiently spent and avoiding long queues. Highly recommended! Tim and Sandra, Canberra Australia

We went on the best of Bohemian & Saxon Switzerland hiking tour and had a ball! The views from the biggest sandstone arch in Europe really left us in awe. I would recommend you keep your camera handy to capture all the sweet sights. Our guide Ales was a true Czech gentleman and his English was almost better than mine! Thanks Bohemian Adventures for the great day trip!

I was lucky to have this one day trip with Bohemia Adventures after reviewing and comparing the same trip from almost all other companies in Prague and Dresden as well.
This one is unique as it offers most of the highlights of Bohemian & Saxon Switzerland all together in the same day (Pravcicka Gate, Kamenice River, Bastei Bridge and Canyon) in addition to a wonderful lunch at a local traditional restaurant.
I took the trip in mid October and the weather was amazing. Our group was 8 persons and could fit conveniently within the Van.
Do not worry about the hiking distance to climb to the Pravcicka gate as you will enjoy the scenery in the way to the gate. I would mark this hike as easy to moderate in terms of physical activity.
Bohemia Adventures staff are very friendly, cooperative and professional especially our great young guide Tomas and the lady who runs the company who met with our group for a short time.
I definitely recommend this one day trip from Prague and I believe Bohemia Adventures is the best choice.
