Additional info about the hike
What do I need to bring?
The most single important thing is to wear comfortable hiking boots or sport shoes suitable for a forest walk. The ground can be uneven and high heels are absolutely a no-go for the trip. While you need no special hiking clothing or equipment, it is recommended you do bring sunscreen and a hat for the sunny weather, or a rain jacket for wet weather, and additionally, pack an extra layer if it is chilly.
Am I fit enough for a hike?
Even if you’re not a regular hiker but are keen to get a taste of the Czech countryside, you do need to be reasonably fit for a hike with Czech Adventure, as hill climbs come with the territory. Your guide will make sure you are comfortable with the pace and stop as often as you need. The philosophy is to slow down and appreciate the beauty of nature.
Can you provide a vegetarian or vegan lunch?
At the moment, the choice of vegetarian/vegan food in the Czech countryside is not large, however, there is a limited option for vegetarian meals like grilled cheese, grilled vegetable, fried potatoes, risotto, etc. The tour operators find it is appropriate to always advise guests that if they are concerned about this, to bring some suitable snack/food with them in case of non-availability of their dietary needs.
