Bike Tour Highlights & Overview

Highlights

  • Exploring the UNESCO World Heritage town of Cesky Krumlov
  • Riding alongside lazy rivers, rolling fields, and lush forests
  • Cycling the remote and densely forested roads of the Czech Sumava National Park
  • Tasting the regional cuisine, including the original Budweiser (Budvar)
  • Exploring the ‘road less traveled’ – roads few non-Czech cyclists get to ride

Overview

A great mix of culture and riding: that’s one way to describe this bike tour. We’ll share our week between two separate towns in the Southern Bohemian region of the Czech Republic. First off is Cesky Krumlov, a town celebrated for its exquisitely preserved Renaissance and Baroque architecture. It embodies the pinnacle of Czech towns from bygone eras. It has all the charm of Prague, in a more manageable size. And of course, there is wonderful cycling to be had all around. The second half of the trip focuses around the remote village of Kvilda. Situated deep within the Sumava Mountains, the village is a perfect base for remote riding, with wonderful natural scenery along almost all stretches of the routes.
