Between the Vltava and Berounka Rivers south of Prague lies a natural region of outstanding beauty. The Bohemian countryside is dotted with quaint villages and historic sites and cycling between them is the ideal way to soak in the scenery. Pass through forests, visit an impressive 600m deep complex of caves, explore the world-renowned Karlstejn Castle and take in the canyon like landscape of a former quarry. This is an ideal trip for those short on time yet keen to explore a lesser known area of the Czech Republic with three nights in the pretty village of Karlstejn and time at the end to explore Prague and its many sites. Cycling a combination of paved rural roads, forest tracks and dedicated cycle trails along the rivers, the trip is suitable for beginners and children.
