ŠUMAVA NATIONAL PARK ADVENTURE
DURATION START 8:30AM
NATURE & CULTURE
MAX TOUR CAPACITY
Start the tour with pickup from your hotel and then begin the journey into the wilderness where adventure awaits. With your guide, travel into the heart of Šumava national park where the forests are quietly mysterious and bursting with enchanting nature that creates a fairy tale atmosphere. The deep forests of the area were restricted during the communist regime in the Czech Republic. That is the reason why the nature has retained its rare beauty and purity. Wander deep into the woodland, and discover its beautiful flora and fauna, crystal-clear glacial lakes, and rural mountain villages.
Learn from your expert guide about the many endangered animals and plants that call the park their home, as you explore this stunning UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. During the tour, visit two of the most beautiful glacial lakes, named Black and Devil's which are connected together with a 9 km hiking trail. Admire the scenic views as you walk along the forest to reach the Black lake, which is the largest and deepest lake in the Šumava and the Bavarian Forest. The lake’s name comes from the black-looking surface of the water which gives the lake its mysterious appearance and reflects the forest trees that surround it.
After the lakes, take a break and recharge your energy supplies with a delicious traditional Czech lunch. Once lunch is finished, visit two natural peat-bogs which are very typical for this region and have existed here since the last glacial period.

Local tour guide
I had been in Prague for a few days and decided to spend my last day escaping and seeing a different side of the Czech Republic. Marek was the perfect guide; experienced, friendly, spoke English well and had a clear love for where he lives. The hike was not too difficult and afterwards we had lunch at the perfect place with options for everyone's preferences. I highly recommend this trip and Marek as a guide.
Marek and Ivana are the perfect company you can ever wish for! With their experience from travelling around the world and growing up in czech, there's always something to talk about. Throughout the trip they kept us entertained be it with the history of Czech, fun facts, or discussing and comparing different cultures. We even asked Marek for recipes of some traditional Czech dishes.
The views in Sumava was spectacular, we saw everything they described in their website and more. We were able to complete the hike with no difficulties at all and Marek even packed extra warm wear for us as it was one of the coldest days in May. The lunch provided was amazing, at a beautiful authentic Czech restaurant with their own mini brewery.
Marek always replies to our email within a few hours. For our tour, we even requested Marek to drop us off at Cesky Krumlov instead of Prague as that was next on our itinerary. Loved that their tours are more personalized, unlike most of the other big commercialized tour companies.
To Marek and Ivana, thank you once again for the amazing experience. It was really great knowing you guys and we really admire your passion for choosing to do what you like instead of chasing after money. We can't wait for you guys to finally realise your dreams and hope to visit you in future! Good luck and all the best. Na Zdravi!
