Easy Canoe Safari on the Sázava River from Prague
After 15 years of hiking, biking, climbing and canoeing in the greater Prague area, we discovered that this is the best adventure around. Leave the city behind and lose yourself in a deep gorge full of incredibly dense forest, dramatic rocks and little cabins built by locals during communist times.
- Try a typical Czech family vacation activity
- Spend a relaxing day paddling down the Sázava river
- Spot some local wildlife in the lush green gorge
- Enjoy a scenic train ride
- See picturesque communist-era cabins
Your guide will give you detailed instructions at the beginning of the trip, and you’ll have time to try steering the canoe on flat water before getting started.
Your guide will be there for you any time you need assistance, though it’s unlikely you’ll need help after your first few strokes of your paddle.
The journey takes about 4–5 hours, including a few little breaks to breathe in the fresh, humid air. A small lunch en route is also included.
An added bonus of this trip is the train journey to the starting point. The railway cuts through rocky terrain and across some outstanding stone viaducts. If you don’t have a head for heights, you better not lean out the window!
You don’t need any special gear for this trip. In case of very low temperatures and rainy weather, we recommend wearing a wetsuit, which we provide upon request.
