Snowshoeing Guided Tour From Prague
Get away from the crowds in Prague and experience a true Czech adventure! Snowshoeing is the easiest way to GET OUT and experience a winter wonderland in Czech Mountains only 1 hr drive from Prague. A small group guided snowshoeing tour will be one of the best things to do this winter on Jested (1,012 m) right outside the city of Liberec.
This towering and rugged Jested Mountain, a symbol of the Northern region, offers magnificent views into Germany and Poland. The unique tower perched on top was designed in 1973. The overall aesthetics make it seem as if it belongs in a science fiction film, the innovative design has combined a TV tower, hotel, and restaurant all in the same structure.
Follow trails deep into the forest to discover snow covered old growth trees and see native birds, animals, tracks and more as your professional English speaking guide provides local knowledge and stories about the area. Along the way you can make snow angels with snowman, have some fun playing in the snow and take a little tea & snack break too.
We will lead the way over snow covered trails to reach the limits of the park and breathtaking overlooks, all within the means of human-powered winter travel. After your snowshoe tour, we’ll eat, drink and be merry with delicious lunch on the top of the mountain, and warm-up with some of Czech’s popular mulled wine! Are you vegetarians, vegans, allergics or meat lovers, and are you interested in genuine Czech cuisine?? We will treat you with the main course and a drink – of your choice :).
With a variety of tours available, choose from a family adventure on flat groomed trails or explore the steep, deep powder that can challenge the fittest of fit. From youngsters to your four-legged friends, snowshoeing is an amazing experience.
We will deliver you back to your accommodation in Prague around 6 pm with your camera full of beautiful photos, great memories with new friends and one more Bohemia Adventure story to tell.
Fear not if you have never been snowshoeing before as there are no skills required, even on a full day tour. If you can walk, you can snowshoe and your dedicated friendly guide will teach you the basic techniques so that you’ll feel like a PRO by the end of the day.

WHAT TO WEAR?
The correct clothing is very important to cross-country skiing. In our experience, most first time cross country skiers overdress and end up getting sweaty, which then leads to being cold. Try to wear breathable, stretchy layers. As this is an aerobic activity, you will get hot but you want to be protected from the outdoor elements. Bring or wear an insulating layer and have a light waterproof layer with you. Just like running in the winter. Start with a hat and gloves and take them off if not needed. Sunglasses and sun cream are also highly recommended. You will be able to get changed and leave your belongings in a locker in our ski rental shop.
