1 Day Nature tour itinerary for Prague, Beroun & Křivoklát Castle: Hike In Dense Forest And Walk Along Berounka River
Prague, Beroun, Křivoklát Castle
Plan to spend a beautiful day in the romantic forestry area near Praha and enjoy beautiful views of the river. Just 45 minutes by train and you will land in a city taking in the natural environment of the Křivoklátsko Protected Landscape Area.
Hike in the Protected Landscape Area and UNESCO Biosphere Reserve with your Czech tour guide. It is situated in the center of Bohemia, and almost two-thirds of the area is covered by deciduous and mixed forests. Dense forests, massive rocks, mysterious castles and ruins as well as the wide and calm Berounka River flowing through the entire Křivoklát and Rakovník region – this is how you could describe one of the most beautiful regions lying on the border of Central, West and North Bohemia. Get to know this emerald gem of Europe – the Křivoklátsko Protected Landscape Area – and discover the history of the Gothic Křivoklát Castle built in the 14th century. This region is intersected by a great number of bike paths and hiking routes; you will explore some of them.
Visit the village of Zbečno. The local landmark there is the timbered house Hamousův statek. Its history dates back to the 16th century and is thus one of the oldest farms in the former lands of the Czech Crown.
Stop for some good lunch and enjoy the local main course and a beer at a traditional restaurant.
Meet in the morning at the Prague departure point and return to Prague, filled with experiences, in the evening, just in time for dinner.

Additional info about the hike
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.
No need to travel far from Praha for this 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.
This is a very personalized trip based on the guide's own experiences which they want to share. The guests can expect a lot of individual attention with advice on clothing, weather, what to pack, as well as fitness levels prior to the trip. Also, the guide will be ensuring your safety and welfare during the hike and the entire trip, as well as helping you with any translations needed when ordering lunch or buying gifts. Most importantly, however, the guide will be escorting you through this remarkable countryside and offering you the most unique experience.
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.
