Karlštejn Castle & Český Kras - by Bike BOOK TOUR

Any time of the Year, the countryside just beyond Prague, are rich in natural beauty and meandering country roads. 

Less than an hour from Prague you can ride amidst the peaceful forests of  Bohemia Centralis. Bicycle the winding roads and winding paths up to bluffs that overlook the Berounka River. Travel on ancient paths past limestone caves, to storybook fortresses cut from stone. Here are the seats used by the ruling Přemysl dynasty to protect their most presious treasures. Uncover the mystery of their legends as we wind our way into the valley and up to Karlštejn Castle.

Depart from the center of Prague (call for time and location) by train to Beroun to begin the tour. Travel on back roads and well-marked river trails to St. John-Under-the-Rock. Continue by road or through the forest to Karlštejn, one of the most well-known castles in Bohemia. A tour of the castle is optional (depending on the group) before returning to Prague by train.

Overall, the bicycle ride from would be about 25 Km, and does require some short climbs (about 300 meters over 5 Km). Some terrain is hilly, and may be challenging for young riders, but the guides will take care to go at a casual pace.
