The Czech Republic has nearly 24,000 miles of color-coded hiking trails, stretching from Karlovy Vary in the northwest to Ostrava in the east  I have tried to put some of the best hiking trails I think you should explore while you are in the Czech Republic. I will discuss mainly the Northern Bohemian hiking trails and leave the rest for your research otherwise it would be a never-ending article. The Pravcicka Gate Hike in the Czech Republic Bohemian Switzerland National Park is a unique national park in the Czech Republic full of sandstone formations. It was created millions of years ago and offers some breathtaking experiences. These days, the area is fully forested with only a few small cute villages. It takes about 2 hours from Prague to reach into the center of the national park by car and there are many beautiful highlights to explore. Once you reach the center of the national park, Hřensko village is the starting point for all main hikes. You can take the most popular 3.5 km hike to The Pravcicka Gate from the main parking spot. Pravčická Gate or Pravčická brána is the biggest sandstone arches in Europe and the second biggest in the world. It even appeared in the Chronicles of Narnia movie! Right next to it there’s a beautiful old wooden hotel from 1881 called Falcon’s Nest, which used to accommodate noble families and now is still open for visitors as a restaurant. The Gorges of the Kamenice River This is one of the most scenic hiking trails in Bohemian National Park. You will walk beneath rock ledges, through several tunnels, and across narrow bridges. You will be so deep in the heart of Bohemian Switzerland that some parts are only accessible on a small riverboat.  The cruise between the narrow sandstone walls is one of the most serene experiences and favorite spots in the national park. People operating boats keep telling made-up stories about the rock shapes – what they might resemble. You will only be given a maximum of 4 true pieces of information – the name of the river, the duration of the boat ride, the length of the canal and the beginning of the operation, yet you will not mind in this special 20 min ride. All the rest is left to your imagination. There is a lot of fun on the boat and the serenity down there is priceless. Take a guided tour with Bohemia Adventures to explore this beautiful fairyland with a professional English speaking tour leader, who will show you stunning spots off the beaten path only known between locals. This is really easy walking by the river Kamenice takes approx 1 hr including the boat ride.

These rocky formations create gates, peaks, towers and alleys of the Rock Town hiking route. This rock town is truly a hidden gem on the Czech and German borders. The rock formations are trippy and seem to be out of this world. The hike will take you to the top and the views from the top the rock formations are priceless. We highly recommend you to take this hike when you visiting the Czech Republic. It is only 1,5 hrs drive from Prague, accessible for everyone. The Tisa wall is especially dreaming spot and Czech mecca for rock climbing.
