Useful information about your day trip
Q: WHICH TOUR WOULD YOU RECOMMEND ME ?
We would recommend the TOP 3 Highlights tour to anybody who is used to hike and loves outdoors and nature. In case you have children with you, or you prefer an easy going day with astonishing views, book the Easy tour with Bastei.
Q: WHAT IS THE WEATHER IN THE NATIONAL PARK LIKE ?
The Bohemian Switzerland national park lies in a low altitude. Its landscape will remind you of mountains but we will walk in altitudes around 300-400 metres above the sea level. Therefore the climate is not wild and is similar to climate in Prague. However you can expect it to be some 2-3 degrees Celsius cooler. This helps in summer when the heats in Prague are balanced by plaesant climate in the national park and in winter when if there is no snow in Prague, chances are there will be some snow in the national park. Just enough of it to add that special sensation into a winter hike.
Q: HOW SHOULD I DRESS FOR THE TOUR ?
The only single important thing is to wear comfortable hiking boots or sport shoes suitable for forest walk. The ground is uneven and high heels or such are a no go for the trip. City sneakers are suitable in summer months, in winter you will need closed shoes or boots. Beside this, you may want to pack sunglasses and a sun cream, along with shorts for hot summer days - while in winter, pack an extra layer, gloves and a cap for your hike as it can be chilly. You need no special gear or such.
Q: CAN I PAY BY CREDIT CARD ?
Yes, once you finish your booking and our Tour Coordinator will process it, we will email you a payment link. You can pay by any major credit card.
Q: WHAT IS THE CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY ?
Very flexible. If you would need to cancel the tour you can do this for free up to 24 hours before the tour starts and we will fully refund you. The payment is non-refundable if you cancel anytime later.
Q: WHAT KIND OF INFORMATION DO YOU NEED FROM US SO WE CAN BOOK THE TOUR ?
Just your name, your travel date, address or name of your hotel and a mobile phone so we can call in case of emergency situation. That is all you need to book the tour.
Q: HOW LARGE WILL BE THE GROUP FOR MY TOUR ?
This depends day by day and you can always email us to check on current situation. Summer is the season's peak and usually we travel with 6 and more guests for the tour. Our maximum is 8 people per the van so you can still enjoy the comfort of a small group and meet some new friends at the same time. In winter months it is likely you may end up having a private tour for two or we can take you out even if you are single traveler only as the nationap park is less crowded in winter.
Q: DO YOU DO MULTI-DAY TOURS AS WELL ?
Yes, we can help you arrange this. We have a good partner hotel and plenty of tips where to go in Bohemian Switzerland and surroundings. Famillies often inquire us for 2- or 3- day tours. We will plan customized itinerary fitting your needs using our deep knowledge of the area. Just contact us for your own tailored offer !
Q: CAN YOU PROVIDE ME WITH VEGETARIAN OR VEGAN LUNCH?
The choice of vegetarian/ vegan food in the national park is not large, but our tour guide will bring you to a cozy Czech restaurant that offers at least 2 - 3 suitable options (for example: Grilled goat cheese with tossed salad, homemade apple jam, walnut bread, Grilled goat cheese with roasted potatoes and spinach, or Chickpeas pure with grilled vegetables - vegan meal). They cook very tasty fixed menu, while being able to accommodate your food preferences/ allergies (we will pass them all such information from you in advance).
Q: CAN I GO ON THE DINGHY RIDE IN WINTER?
The dinghy boat rides through the Gorges of the River Kamenice are available only from March/April (Easter in Czech Republic) until end of October. We have a beautiful scenic destination prepared for you through the course of winter months.
Q: HOW LONG DOES THE TRANSFER FROM PRAGUE TAKE?
