Additional info about the hike:

What do I need to bring?

  • The single most 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 climate, 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 always to 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.

Further Information:

  • To experience a real connection with nature and to fully relax, we have prepared the perfect tourist retreat package for you! An extraordinary 5-day hiking retreat in Czech Šumava National Park. Visit the most popular tourist destinations in Czechia and climb on the green roof of Europe in Šumava!

  • Only a few places in Central Europe offer such a harmonious landscape as Šumava National Park. The deep forests on the Czech-Bavarian border are so vast; they form the largest forested area on the continent. A combination of century-old primaeval forests, crystal-clear glacial lakes, and mysterious peat bogs creates a uniquely romantic place for an active holiday at any times of the year.

  • We will stay in mountain recreation facilities near or directly in Železná Ruda, from where we will also go daily tours. Železná Ruda is a small Czech town deep in the heart of Šumava National Park, 3 hours southwest of Prague. Surrounded by hills and mountains on all sides, it serves as a major hub for tourism – for skiers in the winter and hikers and holidaymakers in the summer.

  • Reconnect with your deepest self through transformative yoga, pranayama and daily meditation practices that will leave you feeling refreshed, vibrant, and grounded. 

  • Accommodation can be private or shared during the stay and is included in the price. Daily trips to the mountains are more demanding, and therefore there is a need for a certain physical condition and strength to walk on mountain terrain and to be able to walk around 10-15 km per day. 

  • Also, we will be ensuring your safety and welfare during the hike and the entire trip. Accommodation, which can be private or shared during the stay, is included in the price. 

  • This is a very personalised trip, and it is for small groups only; thus our guests can expect a lot of individual attention with advice on clothing, weather, what to pack, as well as fitness levels before the trip.

  • Only a few places in Central Europe offer such a harmonious landscape as Šumava National Park. The deep forests on the Czech-Bavarian border are so vast; they form the largest forested area on the continent. A combination of century-old primaeval forests, crystal-clear glacial lakes, and mysterious peat bogs creates a uniquely romantic place for an active holiday at any times of the year.

  • The most precious sites of Šumava were granted strict protection by the creation of the Šumava National Park in 1991. This was outlined to include the central part of the mountain range along the border with Germany, and partly also with Austria, extending its protective shelter over most of the precious natural sites of Šumava: the vast plateaus with moors, wild river valleys of the Vydra and the Křemelná, the highest parts of the border mountain range, glacial lakes Plešné, Prášilské, and Laka, peatlands in the Vltava river valley, as well as the isolated patches of the original mixed forests at Stožec, Smrčina and Plechý. 

  • Šumava it is the largest national park in the Czech Republic, varying in altitude from 600 to almost 1,400 meters above sea level.

  • It is always good to bring friends when you are thinking of spending some time abroad. If you are interested in booking our retreat, please send us an inquiry with your chosen dates, and we can try to help you!
