LOGISTICS

 

We will meet at 8:00 am on Saturday June 6 at the Prague Main Railway Station. See the picture below.

 

 

The train journey to Tábor, takes about an hour and half. We will start the day by a cca 3 km/2 miles long walk across the city to the boat collection point. It will be a nice opportunity to see this lovely historical town. However, don’t expect more than a flying visit.

 

Saturday lunch
We will stop at one of the river side restaurants. These are typical Czech establishment so apart from fried cheese the selection of vegetarian food is limited. Feel free to bring your own packed lunch.

 

Saturday dinner
We will complete the Saturday part of the route around 6:00 pm and the dinner will be served around 7:00 pm. The dinner is included and you will be able to choose from 2-3 options (one will be vegetarian).

 

On Sunday, the end point of our canoeing journey will be Bechyně. It is a very pretty, historical town, built on top of a rock above the river, with Castle, cute main square and town houses etc. You’ll love it!

 

Expected return to Prague is on Sunday at 20:30.

 

DIFFICULTY

Easy (about 28 km of canoeing in two days – manageable by a healthy city-dweller/office worker who is used to moderate level of physical activity).

Both beginners and experienced canoers will enjoy the trip!

 

We’re going to use 2-seat canoes.

 

 

WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU

Pack light, because you’ll need to squeeze all your belongings in a water-proof barrel. There will be one barrel per boat (2 people). All your stuff should fit into a 20-25 l size backpack. If you find it difficult to pack into such a small allowance, contact me. I’ll advise you.

 

You’ll need to wear shoes for walking in water (ideally sandals you can wear for walking too), sunglasses, sunscreen, insect repellent and bathing suit/swimming trunks.
