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!

Reviews from participants

Beautiful and challenging bike tour
Tomas our guide was the best! The bike ride was every bit of 30 km and was pretty challenging for us since we don't bike much, but the castle was amazing. It took the whole day so be prepared for that.
Great tour
Definitely one of the highlights of my trip. The bikes provided were great, I forget their brand but they were definitely top notch, the guide was also really nice. The pace was leisurely but can be as fast as you want. We wanted to go a little slower and take in the scenery.
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.
Bike tour
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.
This was a really nice ride, even in the mist. Petr, our guide, was informative, fun and considerate of our 77 year old pace. We were very impressed that Fillipo was careful about the weather and wouldn't let us go on a day when it was expected to rain a lot. We'd highly recommend Biko!
