About This Event

In order to experience true connection with nature and to fully relax, we have prepared the perfect tourist retreat package for you, 5-day hiking retreat in Czech Paradise National Park. Visit the most popular tourist destinations in Czechia and discover an unique combination of bizzare rock formations!

Squeeze through the crevices, climb up the narrow paths and enjoy the amazing views. You may have the feeling that stories, people’s lives and even time itself has been petrified in the rocks around you. Sandstone “towns” with their gorges, towers, vistas and paths, sites where precious stones are to be found, castles, chateaux and fairy-tales featuring brave knights, beautiful princesses and rough and ready highwaymen: these are the characteristic features of the totally unique Bohemian Paradise, whose exceptional landscape has been listed among UNESCO Global Geoparks.

Reconnect with your deepest self through transformative yoga, pranayama and daily meditation practices that will leave you feeling refreshed, vibrant, and grounded.

We will stay in recreation facilities near to Turnov or Jičín, from where we will also go daily tours.

Accommodation can be private or shared during the stay and is included in the price. Daily trips to the mountains are more demanding and therefore there is a need for a certain physical condition and strength to walk on mountain terrain and to be able to walk around 10-15 km per day.

Also we will be ensuring your safety and welfare during the hike and the entire trip. Accommodation, which can be private or shared during the stay, is included in the price.

This is a very personalized trip and it is for small groups only, thus our guests can expect a lot of individual attention with advice on clothing, weather, what to pack, as well as fitness levels prior to the trip.

It is always good to bring friends when you are thinking of spending some time abroad. If you are interested to book our retreat please send us an inquiry with your chosen dates and we can try to help you!

Nature nourishes the soul, and the more present we can be to it, the deeper we can drink from her well and, refreshed, bring positive change into the world.Nothing supports the opening of the heart and mind like the beauty, tranquillity and silence.

Venue Highlights

Czech paradise named in Czech language as Český ráj, and was created as the first nature reserve in 1955 and later enlarged in 2002. This protected landscape area lies about 90 kilometers north-east of Prague and today has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in Czechia.

Originating in the Mesozoic Era as sediments at the edges of the sea, Prachovské Rocks with its vistas and stairs carved in stone, will arouse your sense of romantic adventure, along with another attractive “rock town” called Hrubá Skála which, coupled with the Bukovina arboretum, is situated between Valdštejn castle (the oldest in Bohemian Paradise) and the picturesque chateau of Hrubá Skála. You certainly should not miss seeing the ruins of Drábské světničky fortress, with its lovely views of the lowlands around the river Jizera, while other sandstone regions worth visiting are the Klokočské and Betlémské Rocks, Besedické Rocks with a labyrinth, and Suché Rocks, sometimes also called the Bohemian Dolomites. You should also consider taking the tourist track near the timbered farmhouse named Kopicův statek, which will lead you through a valley with a number of reliefs carved in stone depicting important figures from Czech History.

It is always good to bring friends when you are thinking of spending some time abroad. If you are interested to book our retreat please send us an enquiry with your chosen dates and we can try to help you!

      Relaxing 5 day break

    I would highly recommend this trip, over 5 days you will enjoy hiking in the stunning Czech countryside together with meditation classes and a nice massage to rejuvenate the muscles to prepare for more hiking. Lenka is the perfect host and leaves no stone unturned, there are also very enjoyable Yoga classes. I came back from this trip with a cleansed mind and body, well worth it.
