Sumava Mountains

Sumava Mountains

Fragrant woods and meadows, valleys lost at the end of the world, bottomless bogs, a glacial lake and vistas full of hills and mountains – that’s Šumava, the largest forest complex in Central Europe. Endless forests hide a stony sea, primeval forest, moorlands, fierce river currents and other natural wonders. The sublimity of the mountains here are guarded by beautiful castles (Rožmberk, Velhartice), and chateaus (Hluboká nad Vltavou). Unique built gems certainly include the Vyšší Brod and Zlatá Koruna cloisters, and of the folk architecture sights, one cannot leave out the remnants of original historical estates in the small town of Volary (14 carved houses in the Alpine style) when wandering. Exceptional technical sights also include two nautical canals, thanks to which the Šumava woodcutters were able to transport tree trunks from the mountains to the mainland. An attractively marked route passing one of the settlements through a 400m long water tunnel leads there these days.  
We can get to know the spirit of the Šumava wilderness, the hospitality of the locals, and explore its inimitable natural beauty on foot, by bicycle, boat and on horseback.  
Welcome to the land of memorial towns, majestic mountains and deep forests.

Getting to know Šumava up close is a MUST. An almost 190 km long mountain range and the largest NP in the country, a whole half of which we will explore over 8 days. We can look forward to secret peat bogs, majestic peaks, a glacial lake and well-preserved technical memorials. The close in beautiful Český Krumlov will be a fitting cherry on the cake after travelling through the magical and beautiful countryside of the Šumava wilderness.
