TRIP DESCRIPTION

During nearly 50 years of communist rule, this area was closed to travelers. The villages were charming but neglected. Now cafés are popping up and you can visit places like the Bohemian crystal glass factories, where old crafts are being revived. This trip follows a corridor of countryside laced with castles and beautiful biking trails that pass through several UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including Telc, and medieval Cesky Krumlov.

Freewheeling Adventures has organized a partnership with Czech planners, so you will have the benefit of vast local knowledge and years of experience, as well as the service and attention you’ve come to expect from your Freewheeling guides. The people-to-people part is what makes the experience especially memorable, and a percentage of the trip fee goes toward restoration projects along the way. The rides are shorter, making this trip accessible to most and allowing plenty of time to explore the many sights along the way. This adventure also works well as a family trip.
