Czech Out Our BOHEMIAN TOUR: NORTH

The BOHEMIAN TOUR: NORTH is situated in the Northern and Eastern Bohemia with good accessibility from the magnificent city of Prague (1-2 hours drive). This location includes a couple of trail centres as well as astonishing sandstone labyrinths and remarkable natural trails. Within the tour we’ll show you around:

Singltrek pod Smrkem

Well-known singletrail destination on the Czech-Polish border is one of the Czech MTB cornerstones. Awarded by the IMBA (International Mountain Bicycling Association) with a prestigious quality certificate "IMBA Ride Center". It is vast, gorgeous and entertaining. In combination with "MTB compatible" natural hiking trails and demanding enduro lines of the Jizera Mountains it creates a sensational mix of mouth-watering flow!

Giant Mountains – Polish foothills (optional)

Purpose built trails in amazing landscape of deep forest filled with giant granite boulders offer dozens of technical spots, but also some extremely flowy and fun sections. In addition to the amazing mountain biking possibilities you will enjoy a historic atmosphere of beautiful Chojnik Castle, which is also a starting point of a nice natural enduro trail.

Chvaleč Ridge (optional)

A pearl among the Czech natural trails in delicate nature next to the largest and most rugged rock city in Central Europe will definitely remain in your memory. With optional challenging enduro downhills this trip will fulfil a rich palette of riding diversity. It is not a coincidence that these trails are also ridden within one of the toughest marathon/enduro races in Europe called MTB Trilogy.

Trutnov Trails

The guys at Trutnov Trails build technical trails you’ll sure to love! Stones, rocks, berms, slabs and loads of fun. Not to be missed while in the Czech Republic! Squamish-style moutain bike trails of the finest quality!

NOTE
Each tour is a living thing and may be influenced by several factors (weather, size and interests of the group, current closures on trails or so on). Your guides are experts who continually evaluate these factors to deliver an outstanding experience for every single member of the group. Therefore the itinerary may be amended when necessary.

ACCOMMODATION
During the week we will typically use hospitality of 2 different guest houses. Our aim is to bring some business to local people so we’re always picking smaller guest houses owned by locals and we never take our guest to large uniform hotel complexes.
All of our accommodation is *** standard with a restaurant and cosy bar to spend the evening in.

Accommodation We Use is Always Equipped with These Facilities

Being single or odd?
Our holidays are priced per person based on two people sharing a room. We don’t charge a single person supplement, however we will aim to put two single people, of the same gender, into the same room. If you really don’t want this then we need to add an extra surcharge, please get in touch to ask about this. If you are traveling as an odd numbered group we will try to offer you the option of 3 to a room rather than sharing with a stranger. If we do that we will make sure there is a room large enough to make this comfortable!

Support of Our Van
We are always trying to use the van as little as possible. Our philosophy is to spend the most of each day out riding in nature and not to hassle with driving. Of course there are places or situations when using the van makes the daily program smoother and easier for everybody, but this will usually happen no more than 1-2 times a week.

  • Arriving by car is definitely an option if you’re coming from closer destinations. Please get in touch to arrange details such as the meeting point and exact time with us.
  • From all over Europe you can get to Prague Main Station without a problem.
  • For the BOHEMIAN TOUR: NORTH we encourage our guests to plan the trip with arrival to Prague no later than at noon on Sundays (or arrive one or two days early and spend some time in Prague which has a lot to offer). This way we can handle the transfer to our first riding destination, setting up the bikes, accommodation and an initial warm-up ride on the day 1.

LOGISTICS

Our tours will take you around several riding destinations (typically 3) with a few decent transfers (1-2 hours at most) during the week. Usually we pick our clients up from the airport and drive them around the whole week in our comfortable van to drop them off in the airport when the show ends. But other means of arrival (car or train) are definitely doable and welcome.

BIKE RENTAL

Enjoy your MTB holidays to the fullest with one of our premium rental bikes! We offer a fleet of 25 premium bikes of these brands:

E-BIKES?

  • We design our tours for standard mountain bikes, but exceptions are possible. Does the e-bike help you to keep up with younger riders all week long? Or erase some medical limitation? Let us know your specific reasons for using the e-bike and we'll be happy to decide whether it is acceptable in our concept or not. We can also provide an e-bike rental.
