This day trip was by far our highlight of our stay in Prague, make sure to include this in your itinerary!

Our guide Ales was extremely kind,thoughtful and informative throughout the whole day. He provided us with water, snacks and even hot tea to drink whilst enjoying the views. During our drive he also made a short stop allowing us to eat and use the bathroom at the local station.

The hike itself was around 3 hours and not difficult. Good non-slippery shoes are ideal if going around December as we found some areas covered in ice but nothing extreme.

Before going to the second part of the tour, Ales booked a restaurant for a very nice local Czech lunch with several options including vegetarian.

The views are exceptional, both at the natural gate and at Bastei Bridge. We had enough time to enjoy the views and take plenty of photos.

Incredible experience. We got to do three different things in one day. I went with my family (wife and 8 year old kid). Initially, I was apprehensive if this will be tough for the kid but the tour was planned in such a way that initial hiking is done in the morning when we are fresh and full of energy. Hike is pretty easy as even my son was able to manage it without any issues. Giving below my feedback on our guide and the experienceOur guide and Bohemian adventuresOur guide Ales was outstanding. He was on time, kept the group together, told us interesting stories and historical facts and went out of the way to make sure we have a good time. He had brought along snacks, water bottles and fruits for us for the journey and kept telling us interesting things to do during our stay in Prague. The food and drinks that were offered as part of the trip was also Ala Carte and we chose dishes as per our liking. They were all very good. LocationAll the three locations were outstanding. Its difficult to identify what we liked best amongst the three. The day involves lot of walking / hiking but the scenery just makes it worthwhile. Make sure you carry a bottle of water and some warm clothes if you are doing this during October. I will definitely recommend this to everyone who are looking for a day trip in the outskirts of Prague

After 3 full days in beautiful but extremely busy Prague, we decided to have a day trip with Bohemia Adventure. We were a family of 4, including 2 teenage children, joined by YC, a really cool guy from Singapore and our guide Thomas. The scenary and hike to Pravcicka Brana were fantastic, wish it was longer, as we thoroughly enjoyed the hike in the woods and the final destination!!
Thomas is a very knowledgable and warm person. Very soon, he made us feel like we were in a company of close friends travelling together, very relaxed to share our enthusiasm and impressions of our trip. He took us to a great restaurant after the hike and then we travelled to Bastei, which was the best part for me, helped by the low clouds, the mystic scenery the wonderful views and beautiful myths. This trip was one of the highlights of our holidays.Highly recommended.

Thanks so much to Bohemia Adventures for this great tour to the national park. When we came to Prague I knew I wanted to check out this beautiful place I had seen pictures of. This tour includes both the Pravika Gate and Bastei Bridge – you have a good amount of time at both places and the hike to the gate is not difficult but long enough to feel like a good hike.

The guide was fantastic – giving us great insights into the park and its history and chatting to us in general about the Czech Republic. Our flight home was the evening of the tour and our guide offered to drop us at the airport if we hit traffic on the way back to Prague, which we really appreciated. Overall, a fantastic tour! It is quite expensive but the park is difficult to access by public transport and the tour includes both sides of the border and lunch, so it’s decent value, particularly compared to similar tours offered elsewhere which don’t include Bastei or lunch.

We were lucky to have a lot of snow, which made the park even more beautiful but it’s definitely worth visiting any time of year!

This is a complete must do activity in Prague for all those who love nature. Our amazing tour guides Hanza (Jan Sudek) and Jana took us to the middle of this winter wonderland after an easy hike to a world of beauty , snow and sandstones. The serenity and tranquillity of the place will take your breath away. It has most beautiful rock formations in the middle of nature . The bastei bridge is equally pretty and it’s amazing to see how ppl have built a bridge on the rocks and it’s nothing less than a fairy tale and views of the bridge are amazing. Being a mountain and nature loving person I recommend this trip and it should be a must part of the itinerary for those who are planning to go to prague. And I would say the hike is a easy one.. Our group had a wonderful time with Jan and Jana . Am taking back beautiful memories of the time spent with them.. thank you Hanza and Jana and Bohemia adventures for this amazing trip

Since we were only two people today we got picked up in our own private car and brought to the beautiful Bohemia National Park for a hike to the Arch! The walk was probably our favourite part and the views on top was beautiful. Went to a lovely traditional Czech restaurant for lunch, you don’t want to miss this building. Continued to Germany to see the Bastei bridge after lunch. Our guide Struan was excellent and accommodating! Well worth to get out of Prague for some beautiful nature when you are in Czech Republic. Thank you, this is the perfect time to go as it’s not overcrowded.
