1. Vyssi Brod - Rozmberk - ca 2 hours - 10 km - 3 weirs
A great leg of the Vltava river! The water flow is safe and lively at the same time which gives you a very refreshing feeling. In about two hours you will see an impressive picture of the Rozmberk castle – the finishing point.
You will be facing 3 weirs while boating down this river leg. The first one comes after ca 800 m – rafts will manage well but canoes or kayaks should be transferred [by hand!]. The second one emerges in Herbertov – ca 4 km from the start [canoes can go through the chute while rafts should cross the weir]. The last weir is in Rozmberk [both canoes and rafts can use the chute]. Our station [the finish of your trip] is located ca 400 m after the last weir. That is where you hand over the boat and get the lift from.
2. Vyssi Brod - Nahorany ca 5 hours - 20 km - 3 weirs
See the trip no. 1 [above] and add ca 10 more km to it. If you like you can have a break in Rozmberk to see the castle. The rest of the journey will take about 2 – 3 hours and there will be no more weirs for you to face. Our log cabin station in Branna is located on the left river bank. As long as you have agreed on transport it leaves from there at the given time. While waiting for the transport you can have a glass of Budvar beer :-] :-]
3. Cesky Krumlov - Zlata koruna - ca 5 hours - 17 km - 5 weirs
This is a very very popular leg of the river, well known for its romantic features. It starts from our log cabin station in Nove Spoli and goes on through the one and only town of Cesky Krumlov [listed by UNESCO]. There is no way for you to regret this choice. All in all, you will face five weirs on the way – four of them in Cesky Krumlov and the fifth one right before the finish in Zlata Koruna. Do not be surprised if you become the centre-piece at the fourth weir [last one in Cesky Krumlov]. This weir is literally ideal to look at from the opposite bridge often full of tourists, always ready to take a picture of you successfully getting through the weir. If you are lucky, you might even receive a spontaneous applaud.
Once you leave Cesky Krumlov there is still a lot to look forward to and admire. The remaining part offers numerous meanders running through a gorgeously romantic forest lined by rocks here and there. Do not worry about having nowhere to stop for a drink or some of the local “boating specialities” – there will be quite a few occasions...
About 1.5 km before the finish you pass a bridge, so be a bit more vigilant not to miss the right spot to stop. There is still the last weir in Zlata Koruna ahead of you. Go through it on the very left side and keep close to this bank – the get-off point follows right after the coming bridge in the Zlata Koruna camp site. Our station is situated in the same place – just look for yellow sings showing the Ingetour logo and name. You are supposed to grab the boat yourselves and bring it up to our [fenced] station. Or at least come to ask us for assistance :-] Please never leave the boat/s unattended – that way you avoid theft.
4. Zlata Koruna - Borsov - ca 5 hours - 20 km - 2 weirs
This leg of the river runs through forests and meadows. Starting in Zlata Koruna, you pass the Divci Kamen ruins [a traditional place of interest for hikers] after 9 km. Take a break here if you like. It takes about 15 minutes walking to reach the ruin. It is definitely worth seeing – the view of the river being just a cherry on top of the cake. The first expected weir comes about 2.5 km before the finish. No need to be worried – it is just a wavelet. The second one is a different story – DO NOT go through! This one is impassable. Stop your boat well ahead of the weir and transfer it. Now you are just a stone throw from the finish – recognizable by the railway bridge. Stop on the right side just behind the bridge. Our staff will be expecting you.
Again: You can leave your car here at the beginning and we take you up the river to the starting point.
5. Lenora - Soumarsky most - ca 1,5 hour - 6 km - no weirs
This romantic trace goes through the National park Czech forest. The most popular is its riding down with canoe. This trace is practicable most of the year. It is not suitable for beginners in spring, when is snow melting.
This trace you can plan as half-day only. You can use our luggagetransport.
6. Soumarsky Most - Pekna - ca 4 hours - 16,5 km - no weirs
To enter this leg of the river you need permission from the Sumava National Park. Please submit your registration at: www.npsumava.cz.
Imagine romantic and untouched nature plus just little signs of civilization – that is what you are going to get. The only chance to grab some refreshment is in Soumarsky most. Make sure you have got at least something to drink to go on the following four hours up to the finish in Pekna – about 1 km beyond the bridge. Our transport arrives to collect you right to this place.
