Know More about this tour

Once you are comfortably picked up at your hotel, you will leave Prague in a small group of 1-8 people. En-route, your tour guide will point out natural landmarks you are passing during this 2 hrs drive and introduce you to the Czech countryside.

Your first stop will be the "Tisa rocks" national natural monument, located at the heart of the natural reserve "Elbe Sandstones". Your guide will lead you through narrow passages and along bizarre stone pillars, reminding you of a fairy tale-land. It is no wonder that scenes from the famous fantasy movie "Chronicles of Narnia" were filmed here. You will have enough time to slowly explore the area and access the tops of the rocks to enjoy the great views.

Afterwards, get ready to enjoy a traditional Czech lunch at an excellent local restaurant where you can try typical Czech meals. Selection of dishes cooked from local ingredients and also great beer from a local mini-brewery will give you just enough energy for the second part of your tour.

Your guide will then take you on a 45-minute drive to the German side of the Elbe Sandstones and finally arrive to the "Bastei", an iconic rock-formation, fortress and a stone-bridge high above the river Elbe. An easy walk will take you to the main viewpoints overlooking the huge Elbe canyon with table mountains all around. You will also see the Königstein, a big fortress on the opposite side and with a good weather you can enjoy a beautiful sunset from this place as well.

Make your way back to Prague in the evening and arrive back in the city around 7 p.m, full of experiences from a day spent in outdoors.

  • It was a rainy day, cold and windy but we had one of the BEST experiences of our life.
    Elbe Canyon is magnificent- be prepared for a 2 hours walk and hike but it worth every single minute.
    Then Bastei Bridge- we visited all under rain but it was fantastic. Something I may say you can't miss.

  • Worth the cost of this event!

  • A wonderful tour full of amazing sites and the best of nature. A little strenuous but worth it. The guide was excellent. We are old people and it was not easy for us. But he was very considerate and cause us to enjoy the tour in spite of the hardship. A great guy.

  • Even though it rained the whole day this was still a very enjoyable experience. Vladka was a great guide and she even gave her rain poncho to one of the guests. She went above and beyond!

  • the guide was great and the view beautiful, but the restaurant was terrible. it looked like a tourist-trap, because the guide and us ordered the same dish, that said dumplings, and she got dumplings and we got simple bread.

  • This tour was amazing? Our guide Mira was punctual, knowledgeable and very well spoken. He made the tour interesting and very comfortable.
    Food was delicious and the scenery was breathtaking.
    I would highly recommend.
    Thank you Mira was such a fantastic experience :)

    Overall very good experience
    Higly recommended

  • I booked this trip from home as it was highly recommended and we weren't disappointed, although the
    weather wasn't very kind to us it rained most of the day. We really did enjoy the 2km walk beside the
    River up to where you hopped on a little boat and went further up seeing some wonderful sights
    it did look spectacular in the mist.
    We then continued to where the Elbe sandstone mountains were but the rain and mist did stop
    us from seeing afar.
    Our guide was excellent he looked after us very well, supplying us with more rain coats
    Food was excellent would highly recommend.

  • I really enjoyed this day. The guide sorry his name escapes me was wonderful and his english was good which made it easier when he explained things during the day. The day consisted of a reasonably steep walk down to the Gorge, a small walking distance along a track, a boat ride and then another 30 minutes walking. The walk was easy and enjoyable. Lunch was enjoyable with my only comment being that we waited over an hour after ordering for our meals. I think with was a restaurant mistake as they provided us with dessert 'on the house'. The next part of the day to the bridge was fantastic the scenery was amazing and well worth seeing. Well worth the effort to go on this day trip. Would thoroughly recommend.

  • Our guide Waldemar was a wonderful guide. He was very knowledgeable and I highly recommend this tour to anyone that wants to get out of the city and see the countryside. The views along the river were lovely the our boat captain pointed out many points of interest while Waldemar translated for us. The trip to the old fort was lovely, and the views were incredible. There is an outdoor amphitheater and the sound rising up from that just added to the beauty of the trip.
