Combine a stay in UNESCO World Heritage Site, Cesky Krumlov, with exploring the wilds of the Sumava. The Sumava is a landscape of lakes, forests and mountains on the border with Germany and Austria. For many years the Iron Curtain meant the Sumava was out-of-bounds, which has allowed nature to flourish here, unspoilt by humans. This three-day tour gives a unique insight into the area's history and natural treasures.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: In the afternoon enjoy a guided tour of this ancient town and a visit to the Egon Schiele Centrum to see an exhibition of photographs of life in the Sumava before the Iron Curtain, followed by dinner (included in price). Your guide will give you some insider's tips on planning your stay.

Day 2: your guide will meet you at your hotel before taking you on a day-long trip to the Sumava National Park. The trip can be flexible according to your interests. The standard trip includes:
- a short walk along a boardwalk into the centre of a bog to see rare peat loving plants,
- a walk in the old forest looking for mushrooms (depending on the season) or ancient rocks,
- reminders of the tragic history of the area between 1938 and 1989,
picturesque wooden cottages,
- the young River Vltava. Lunch included.
