The Best of 2 Countries in 1 Day - Top Highlights of Bohemian and Saxon Switzerland National Park

Excited about exploring the most photogenic natural creations of the Bohemian and Saxon Switzerland National Park? Come and hike with us to the TOP Narnia movie spots such as Pravcicka Gate, take a romantic boat ride between sandstone formations and visit Bastei bridge with ruins of old Neurathen rock castle from 12th century in Germany.

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. That all only 2hrs drive from Prague.

Our professional English speaking local guide will take you 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.

Next stop will be delicious lunch included in your tour 🙂 

Exactly halfway through the day! Are you vegetarians, vegans, allergies 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 most romantic part of our trip will take place in the gorges of the Kamenice river. You will 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 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 from 12th century.

We will deliver you back to your hotel in Prague around 6pm with your camera full of beautiful photos, great memories with new friends and one more Bohemia Adventure story to tell 🙂.
