Day 1: Arrival in Prague
Individual arrival in Prague and boarding from 4:00 p.m.
After dinner, treat yourself to a walk on Charles Bridge, particularly impressive in the evening, and enjoy the wonderful view of the illuminated Prague Castle.

Day 2: Prague – Kralupy – Prague (27 km)
You will have the morning free to explore Prague. After receiving your bikes, you will start your first stage cycling along the Vltava river and passing by Troja Castle, one of the most beautiful baroque monuments in the country and home to the Prague City Gallery. Continue to the village of Klecánky and then on the banks of the Vltava through Drasty, continuing to Vodochody along the riverbank up to today's destination, Kralupy. Boat arrival is around 5:00 p.m.

Day 3: Kralupy – Mělník – Kralupy (28 km) | Mělník – Litoměřice by boat
After breakfast, cycle mainly along the Vltava River to Nelahozeves. We recommend visiting the birthplace of Antonin Dvořák, housed in one of Bohemia's most famous Renaissance castles, also known as the little Louvre of the Czech Republic. Today's tour will then take you to Veltrusý Park, a vast park with numerous sculptures and gazebos. The final destination of the bike stage is the royal city of Mělník, where you will get back on the boat to enjoy a trip on the Elbe River to Litoměřice.

Day 4: Rest day in Litoměřice or circular tour to Ustí and return (53 km)
A day to spend at your leisure. Discover one of the most beautiful Czech cities, the royal city of Litoměřice: the colorful Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque buildings in the city center, mostly surrounded by well-preserved Gothic fortifications, will enchant you. A visit to the Baroque cathedral of Saint Stephen, atop the domed hill, the historical underground with a vast tunnel system, and the bishop's residence is also worthwhile. You may also be interested in an individual visit to the Terezín Concentration Camp Memorial (Theresienstadt), located just 5 km away. For more experienced cyclists, we recommend cycling to Ustí, located idyllically in the narrow Elbe River valley, up to the Gateway of Bohemia and the ancient ruined castle, Schreckenstein.

Day 5: Litoměřice – Roudnice by boat | Roudnice – Mělník – Mlčechvosty by bike (40 km)
In the early morning, the boat will take you to Roudnice, where your bike tour will start around 9:00 a.m. Cycling mainly alongside the Elbe river and passing through Dobřín, Račice, and Vliněves, you will return by bike to the lovely village of Mělník. Enjoy the spectacular panoramic view of the point where the Vlatwa and Elbe rivers meet, from the top of the castle hill. You will then continue cycling to Mlčechvosty, the final destination of the day. The boat's arrival is expected around 4:30 p.m.

Day 6: Mlčechvosty – Prague (40 km)
Today you can start your bike tour that will take you through Nelahozeves, Kralupy, Vodochody, Drasty, and Klecánky, and will bring you to Prague, or relax in the sun on your boat's deck. You'll arrive in Prague around 3:30 p.m. The rest of the day is dedicated to visiting the city.

Day 7: Prague – Zbraslav – Prague (30 km)
Today, you'll get to explore by bike: the right bank of the Vltava River, the most beautiful spots in the Old Town, New Town, and Jewish quarter. Or you can simply meander through the streets enjoying city life, seated in one of the cafes on Old Town Square. Prague offers countless possibilities! If you feel like cycling, treat yourself to a nice tour up the Vltava River to Zbraslav and back. It's also worth visiting Vyṧehrad Castle, likely built in the 10th century on a hill overlooking the Vltava River. Local legend holds that Vyṧehrad was the site of the first settlement that later became the city of Prague.

Day 8: Prague
Disembark at 9:30 a.m., after breakfast. Individual departure or extension of your stay in Prague.
