About This Event

In order to experience a true connection with nature and to fully relax, we have prepared the perfect tourist retreat package for you! An extraordinary 5-day hiking retreat in Czech Šumava National Park. Visit the most popular tourist destinations in Czechia and climb on the green roof of Europe in Šumava!

Only a few places in Central Europe offer such a harmonious landscape as Šumava National Park. The deep forests on the Czech-Bavarian border are so vast, they form the largest forested area on the continent. A combination of century-old primeval forests, crystal-clear glacial lakes, and mysterious peat bogs creates a uniquely poetic place for an active holiday at any times of the year.

We will stay in mountain recreation facilities near or directly in Železná Ruda, from where we will also go daily tours. Železná Ruda is a small Czech town deep in the heart of Šumava National Park, 3 hours southwest of Prague. Surrounded by hills and mountains on all sides, it serves as a major hub for tourism – for skiers in the winter and hikers and holiday makers in the summer.

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

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

Only a few places in Central Europe offer such a harmonious landscape as Šumava National Park. The deep forests on the Czech-Bavarian border are so vast, they form the largest forested area on the continent. A combination of century-old primaeval forests, crystal-clear glacial lakes, and mysterious peat bogs creates a uniquely poetic place for an active holiday at any times of the year.

The most precious sites of Šumava were granted strict protection by the creation of the Šumava National Park in 1991. This was outlined to include the central part of the mountain range along the border with Germany, and partly also with Austria, extending its protective shelter over most of the precious natural sites of Šumava: the vast plateaus with moors, wild river valleys of the Vydra and the Křemelná, the highest parts of the border mountain range, glacial lakes Plešné, Prášilské and Laka, peatlands in the Vltava river valley, as well as the isolated patches of the original mixed forests at Stožec, Smrčina and Plechý. Šumava it is the largest national park in the Czech Republic, varying in altitude from 600 to almost 1,400 metres above sea level.
