The Czech Republic is a walker’s paradise, and we’ve created an enchanting journey where many of our hikes begin and end at fairytale castles that reign over the sylvan countryside. The medieval heritage of this vibrant nation is remarkably intact in wonderful towns like Mikulov, a quintessential Moravian town of pale yellow Renaissance houses, and tiny Telc, one of the best preserved 16th century towns in all Europe, which we first encounter as we walk right through the arched town gates at the end of a lovely hike. Three unforgettable days in beguiling Cesky Krumlov, a World Heritage Site with a dreamy pink and green castle towering above stately 15th century mansions, and an exploration of magical Prague crown our journey.

Note: We recommend that trip members arrive in Vienna the night before. We are happy to book extra nights at our recommended hotel.

What the Trip is Like: This trip is rated Level 2+, Easy to Moderate. It is an easy town and country walking tour consisting of day hikes of 2-5 hours over gently hilly terrain. You carry just a daypack. Our vehicle usually meets us at midday, bringing us either to a local restaurant, to the beginning of the next walk, or to another spot to explore. Our luggage is transported for us by van, so it is always possible to ride in the van if you want to opt out of a day's hiking. Please note that in Europe, the dinner hour is considerably later than what it is in the US. We do our best to secure early reservations for our groups, but most often the evening meal will be at 7:30 p.m.
