Image supplied by Ave Bicycle Tours
Nature lovers will enjoy long paved and unpaved sections without traffic through forests as well special paved cycling paths along rivers. Terrain is slightly rolling broken by flat section on river banks.
This tour begins in the vicinity of Sumava National Park, located in the south of Bohemia and follows the Vltava River through beautiful, scenic landscapes to Prague, the historic capital of the Czech Republic.
Taking a trip following the most important Bohemian river is an excellent choice, because it naturally takes you to the places that used to be the centres of cultural life in the country during the Middle Ages.
The trip starts in Cesky Krumlov, a UNESCO heritage site. Not only is it a fascinating medieval centre, but the cultural life and history of this beautiful well-preserved town is truly unique. Another world-famous stop on your trip will be Ceske Budejovice, which gave its name to Budweiser beer or visit of Hluboka chateau. Other attractions to be visited are Pisek, a town with a remarkable historical centre and the oldest stone bridge in the Czech Republic. Close to Pribram, a town with a long history of silver mining and more recently of uranium mining during the twentieth century stands Saint Mountain with its pilgrimage Church of the Virgin Mary dating from the 16th century. The last but one night you will spend in Karlstejn village with its spectacularly-located fourteenth century Gothic castle. Cycling tour ends by arriving into your hotel in Prague.
The route follows small country roads with virtually no traffic and off-road biking trails with firm surfaces.
