South Bohemian Region by Bike

Three days of cycling in the South Bohemian region of the Czech Republic merely whet my appetite for what's available in the country. Lots has been written about the Prague to Vienna bike ride, especially with so many outdoor-adventure companies offering the tour. But the lesser known parts of the Czech Republic like the South Bohemian region are not nearly so well represented online.  Our group of cyclists, made up of five young males and…

Prachatice: Home to a Culinary Cycling Tour

My Czech lunch of fried cheese and potato finished, I’m ready to head out and burn off some of the 1,000 calories I’ve just ingested. The plan is to spend the rest of the day on a 37 km culinary cycling tour. Make that an ebike tour beginning in Prachatice, Czech Republic. On this beautiful fall day I am biking with six guys – between the ages of 26 and 34. I don’t usually feel…

South Bohemia – 10 Essential Stops to Make

South Bohemia is a beautiful area south of Prague that largely flies under the radar of foreign tourists - save for the storybook-like town of Český Krumlov. South Bohemia is definitely not a mainstream destination. And yet it's got an embarrassment of riches including a plethora of fairy-tale like castles, charming villages, pretty man-made lakes, massive forests (the largest in Central Europe), excellent restaurants and plenty of scenic places to drink a pilsner beer.

19 Czech Republic Photos to Inspire a Hike

The Czech Republic is a beautiful country to explore on foot. On my walking holiday with Country Walkers we started in Vienna and hop scotched to Prague via Telc, Tabor and Cesky Krumlov. Most of the hiking was in pastoral landscapes and somewhat off the beaten paths judging by the fact we rarely met any other walkers. The itinerary was designed by our two Czech guides to provide a cross-section of landscapes and a glimpse into many of the Czech…

Exploring The Woods Just Outside Of Tabor Czech Republic

Tabor Czech Republic in 48 Hours

On my one week walking tour with Country Walkers I spent 48 hours in the Tabor Czech Republic. Located just 90 minutes south of Prague, the town was founded in the 15th century as a peasant commune. It is very much worth a visit. With its old town surrounded by huge city walls, a gorgeous town square and a warren of cobblestone streets, it's a city that begs to be explored on foot. You could…

Telc Czech Republic

Telc Czech Republic – Why You Should Visit

The pretty town of Telc in the South Bohemian region of the Czech Republic was the first stop on a walking tour with Country Walkers. It was a treat to stop in Telc Czech Republic for a few days as it sees a fraction of the tourists that you'll find in more popular cities like Prague and Ceský Krumlov. And the town square in Telc is one of the most beautiful I have ever seem.…
