Czech Paradise Walks Holiday

Sunset in Czech Paradise


This is a flexible holiday which allows you to explore some of the famous rock towns, ancient castles, old villages and natural sights of Czech Paradise (Cesky Raj) at your own speed.

You will be based in Jicin, a lovely historic town. Unlike normal walking tours you are not bound to a timetable and do not have to pack up every morning. We have developed a selection of walks for all abilities, you can walk as much or as little as you wish and you don't have to decide in advance. 

On Jicin's doorstep are some of the most beautiful countryside you will find anywhere in the Czech Republic. The massive rock pillars of the Cesky Raj's rock towns are as high as four-storey buildings. In the past the rock towns have been the haunt of robbers and robber barons, now they are criss-crossed by tourist trails. The area has many castles, as well as lovely timbered wooden cottages and farms. The variety of landscapes result in a wide-range of flora and fauna. 
Some of the sights on the walks are:
  • Prachovske Rock Town - the area's most famous rock towns regularly used by as a film location
  • Kost Castle - impressive medieval castle overlooking a delightful valley walk
  • Sobotka historic reserve - delightful traditional wooden houses 
  • Hruba Skala Rock Town and Castle - forested rock town with lovely views
  • Trosky Castle -  ruined castle on two extinct volcanoes
  • Turnov - a town of gem-cutters
  • Valdstein Castle
  • Marian Garden - Baroque chapels hidden in the landscape
  • The Plakanek Valley Nature Reserve.  

See slide show below.

Because we have designed the walks around the local train lines (you get timetables as part of the walks pack) this holiday is perfect for people who don't want to hire a car but do want to get off the tourist routes. 

Also in the package are 3* bed and breakfast accommodation, transfers from and to Prague, walks pack and the loan of a Czech phone loaded with useful numbers in case of an emergency. We can also offer accommodation in Prague as part of the package. 

The cost of a seven-night package is £700 for two people sharing a room.  You can adjust the length of stay as required.
