Traveler Tips

There are some more difficult parts of the easy path as you are hiking up and down a gorge and for Bastei there are several steps.
This hike is definitely not for couch potatoes, it's a mildly strenuous hike (figure 15 miles) with some incline, but not anything terribly steep (more like lots of stairs).

Outstanding hike!
lalock3, Aug 2022
Marek was a great guide. We had two hikes in different areas of the National park. The hikes involved lots of steps, the views were totally worth the effort. We will remember the beauty of this park for a long time. Lunch & snacks were provided & were excellent. Thank you, Marek!
Alex_L, Apr 2022
The most memorable were the tisa rocks and the first time seeing the bastei bridge. Pavla was awesome at controlling the group pace and also having fun with us.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Dear Alex, thank you for your positive review! The Bastei bridge and Tisa rocks are always the highlights. Our favourites too. Thank you for travelling with us and for good review of Pavla too. Best regards, Vitek - Founder & Owner of Northern Hikes
Best trip out there!
Coral_S, Apr 2022
One of the best experience of our lives. My friend and i had a private tour of the three main landscapes. The tour guide was incredibly kind and sweet with great knowledge beyond your imagination. He took care of us through out the day and made sure we would get the best experience possible. I would definitely recommend you taking a break and taking a hike with your family. The hike was not too difficult, the road is pretty comfortable (about 17 km) and the views were breathtaking.

Great trip, highly recommended!
KateSandra_L, Apr 2022
For a start. I liked how the tour operator made efforts to reach out to me on the details as soon as I booked the tour. They were also prompt and detailed in responding to queries/messages. Somehow, I was the only one on the tour and I was pleasantly surprised that they did not cancel on me (thought they might cancel if min pax was not met). During the tour, my guide Marek was knowledgeable and thorough in his explanations. He was friendly, personable and had a great sense of humour, making the whole tour very pleasant. The views were breathtaking and so scenic. The hike wasn’t as challenging as they described, probably manageable for average hikers. Total about 15km for the 3-in-1, with a longer distance hike at the arch, and several steps to climb at the Gorges. Lunch was great with several options. I started at 730am and arrived back at hotel at 530pm. I would recommend for anyone to go on this tour.

We had a great day with Northern Hikes, and our guide was very knowledgable and competent. Unfortunately our original itinerary was disrupted by forest fires so we instead visited two different locations, both of which were very enjoyable!

A great day outdoors
Saleem_R, May 2022
Marek, our guide was great. He was very communicative and told us everything in detail. The hike was great as was the boat ride. He volunteered to our photos at all the good spots. Highly recommended with Marek as the guide
Martin was AWESOME.
Shawn_C, Jul 2022
Overall, outstanding experience. Martin was incredible from start to finish. I highly recommend asking for Martin personally for your tour. We had a fantastic day, loved the couples that were in our group and will never forget this experience.
Recommend! Amazing hike with beautiful and unique views
Sofie_M, Aug 2022
We had an amazing hike with our guide, Pavla. We were supposed to go on the 19 km hike (highlights Bastei, Gorges, and Pravcicka Gate). The very friendly customer service contacted us to let us know that due to wildfires those sights were not accessible. However, they created another hike for us (Tisa Rocks, Mary's Rock, and Jetrichovice look outs) and we decided to go anyway :) It was so beautiful, a tough, but lovely hike and Pavla was really great at story telling and ensuring a pace suitable for all of us. I also want to point out how great customer service (in our case, Eva and Pavla herself) was and how fast they were at responding and creating a new, amazing itinerary due to the wildfires.
Honeymoon Trip Hike
Heather_U, May 2022
Our day with Marek was amazing. We arrived to the park early and the morning hike and views were breathtaking. The trails made for a comfortable walk and were a nice retreat after a couple of weeks of city walking on our trip in Europe. Marek's knowledge and kindness made for great conversation and companionship throughout the day. This trip was the perfect way to conclude our honeymoon in Europe!

Terrific experience, we were a very small group which is better. The van was comfy and convenient, the tour guide is absolutely amazing, a true expert, super friendly, patient, and caring. The views are great, especially for a person who didn’t have such an experience before in European region. It definitely requires lots of walking and hiking. No need to worry about restrooms you’ll have plenty of opportunities, please take advantage of each. We were given an apple, biscuits, banana and bottle of water as snacks. The launch on the other side was great Tips: 1- eat your breakfast prior, a very good one 2- it’s recommended not to spike your blood sugar in your breakfast (less carbohydrates) so you don’t lose the energy because the hardest part is in the morning 3- wear a comfy shoes, light cloths (depends on the weather), you can bring a jacket in your back bag 4- you’ll need a back bag 5- i don’t recommending bringing children but it’s up to you 6- sleep well 7- lastly, enjoy!
Best excursion ever!

Beautiful parks and a great guide!
Wan_A, Jun 2022
Wasn’t sure what to expect but this tour ended up as a perfect companion to the Prague city attractions. Beautiful parks and our guide was excellent. She’s a true nature lover and her energy and passion made this tour one of the best we’ve ever had
Karissa_S, Aug 2022
These sights were gorgeous. It was so much fun, and it was helpful that the van picks you up from where you’re staying, such as your hotel. Fun tour guide, good food for lunch, still fun even though it rained. Magical experience.
‏Martin the guide picked...
Maya_R, Aug 2022
‏Martin the guide picked me up on time from the hotel, even a little early. I got a paper bag inside were a banana, an apple, an energy bar and a bottle of water. The car was comfortable and spacious to drive. We visited two sites (the boat tour was not possible due to fires in the area). The first site was beautiful and I enjoyed walking the paths, the second site had a breathtaking view. In the restaurant where we ate, the food was delicious and Martin was generous all the time. He also made sure to tell us about the sites and gave us a glimpse of life in the Czech Republic. Thanks for an outstanding experience. I recommend to take the tour with you. Maya from Israel

Amazing view amazing guide but it was a bit tough, a lot of walking and not too many breaks so it depends if you are fit enough for this, but if you are don't miss the opportunity!!
Most memorable hike
Amy_W, Jun 2022
The hike was amazing! The trails were beautiful. Bohemian Switzerland Park (in Czech) to see Pravčická brána (Archway), a boat ride in the gorge trail continue on to The Bastei rock formation at Saxon Switzerland National Park in Germany. The Bastei Bridge is a breathtaking rock formation in Germany. A good mix from intermediate to easy hiking. The guide was friendly and funny. The lunch was a very good choice and delicious.
