I went to Prague with my aunt. I am 48 and she is 70. As she wasn't used to ride more 'sporty' bikes, she was at the beginning a bit afraid. Eva was our guide and she managed very well to get her at ease. She was very helpful and friendly. It was a wonderful ride along the river. The places for the coffee break (with cake :-)) and the lunch were very nice, the food was good. We got back with the train and took a little ferry. We ended the day with a drink on a boat, a very nice place and not so touristic. The pictures will tell you a lot.

Description

Karlštejn is one of the most beautiful castles in the Czech Republic and we recommend seeing it!

There’s nothing better than leaving Prague for a day to ride alongside rivers (which we can jump into when the weather’s especially hot), cross little villages, drink quality Czech beer, ride on bike paths full of flowers and cross many bridges, each one different from the next, before seeing Karlštejn Castle appear in front of you in all its magnificence. This family-friendly tour also includes a stop at a local bakery where you’ll get the chance to try several different Czech sweets.

Join us for a day of fun to complete your Prague experience!

Wonderful leisurely cycle down the river to Karstejn Castle.
Lucy our guide, was very attentive and informative. We enjoyed the trip to the Castle with her.
Great tour
Wonderful tour, friendly and helpful guide. Biko was very professional.

Biking with my kids was specisl because the guide cared about us and our holiday. From the moment we left the Biko office he had us laughing and smiling. Well worth the time.

Biko Adventures was one of the highlights of our Prague trip. I (in my late 20s) traveled to Prague with my parents (in their early 60s) and convinced them to do a 35 kilometer bike tour from Prague to Karlstejn Castle. Neither had been on a bike outdoors in over 15 years. I researched the different tour options available through Biko and found many options I'd be interested in, but the Karlstejn trip turned out to be the best tour for my parents as beginner riders (though a few narrow passages to navigate over bridges). Petar was our guide, and we rode along with two other couples, which was a nice-sized group. It was really great to bike through the countryside, outside of Prague, along the river and end at a beautiful and historic castle which we had to to explore. We finished off with a Czech beer and traditional meal in the town of Karlstejn. I truly recommend Biko in general, as the staff and guides were very friendly and they have a quaint little shop in Prague (which we bought graphic t-shirts from Filippo, the owner), and I especially recommend the Karlstejn tour for travelers looking for a bit of adventure, but on the more leisure side. I would definitely come back to ride with Biko!

We had an amazing time doing the trip from Prague to Karlsejn by bike. We saw the suburbs in Prague, we traveled through flower fields, bridges and narrow paths through little forests. Everything was great, it was a highlight in our trip to Prague. I definitely recommend doing this if you travel in Prague and the weather is nice and warm.

I like to run trails. I don't want to risk my safety cause that can put others out. Biko was my answer. They took me to some fantastic off road trails. Not only that, they shared information that enabled me to head out safely on my own when I couldn't link in with them. (They were available, it was my time issue). Friendly and vibrant people that really slot into your personality type.

My sister and I had a great time running with Marek from Biko! We opted for the 10k run, which seemed a little daunting after being on vacation for a while but Marek was great and let us run at our own pace and even walk when we had to climb the big hills. Doing a running tour was a great way to combine exercise with sightseeing. We saw a lot of areas of Prague that we likely would not have seen and so many beautiful views, we are absolutely recommending this to all of our friends going to Prague. Thank you Marek and Biko Adventures for such a great run!

Both the hikes were simply breath taking. The long, tired but wonderful hike to karlstejn castle makes the surrounding views from the top of the castle most appreciative. Our guide Adam made us felt like we were old friends. The other trip to Czech paradise was another really wonderful hike. The walk and climb through the rocks formations were most exhilarating. Our guide Marek really knows his way around and showed us the most beautiful and breath taking sights. Thank you Biko!!!!!
