General Information

The Vltava River is the most significant Bohemian river - rising in the south of the country, running through Prague, and eventually flowing into the Elbe (Labe) River to the north. It is immortalized in Smetana's tone poem, Ma Vlast. The Berounka River is a tributary of the Vltava. The meeting of the two rivers is just 12 km south from the centre of Prague. The river valleys are picturesque, with many forested areas, gently undulating hills and small villages. You will visit the world-renowned Karlstejn Castle, Konepruske Caves (an impressive 600m-deep complex of limestone caves), many medieval and Renaissance towns and villages, characterful pubs and restaurants and many other sights.

You will cycle directly from Prague to the pretty village of Karlstejn, 30km from Prague. You will stay here for three of the biking days and each day you will cycle to an interesting historical or natural site. Enjoy your lunches in charming village pubs and restaurants on the way and take your time enjoying the landscape and learning a lot about this beautiful region, which has not yet been discovered by mass tourism, visiting many fascinating locations you would never not get to see on a regular bus tour!

The trails are mostly paved, but you will also cycle on forest trails and some more difficult surfaces.

The tour is mostly easy except for two moderate trips from your Karlstejn hotel. The itinerary is designed as a leisure - sporting ride with a balance of cycling and sightseeing.
