HIKING TOUR for families and seniors
Page under construction
The Czech Paradise, Cesky Raj in Czech, is famous for its sandstone pillars and castles. In this hike we will enjoy both of them. We will start our journey in one of the most beautiful castles of the area called Hruba Skala and then we will walk an easy path full of great lookout on the sandstone pillars that characterize the area. After 3,5 km circa teh trail will take us to another very nice castle situated on rock formation, Valdstejn Castle, which we can visit.
We can after come back through the same way or if you feel for some up and down we can take a more difficult trail back to the first castle.

The tour in details
We will leave Prague and reach the Czech Paradise in about 80 minutes. Once there we will start our hike that will bring us around the national park. We will enjoy the playful features of the trail going under, over and around the many many sandstone pillars. We will reach several lookouts from where we will fully enjoy the view of the unique landscape. Half way we can eat some traditional Czech food in a typical restaurant based in one of the info centers (from April to October). You don’t need any particular skill to do the hiking, just to be a bit fit as there are several up and downs.
We are sure you will never forget this incredible place so close to Prague!
And if you didn’t have enough…
according to the season we can go after the tour in one of the 3 following destinations:
More info about the city here.
Trosky ruins is a majestic dominant of Český ráj. Rich history of Trosky is full of empty spaces, unbelievable stories and legends. For a short while people were afraid of Trosky very much, because famous robbers Kryštov and Švejkar used the castle as their base.
Admission fee of 60 CZK not included in the price of the tour.
Opening hours: April and October only Saturday and Sunday. From May to September open everyday.
A great summer time idea is to jump in the clean water of a nice lake few minutes from the national park and wash away the sweat of the hiking. After this you will go back to Prague refreshed, tired and happy!
