On our recent trip to the Czech capital, we decided to take a day trip from Prague to explore Bohemian Switzerland. On our previous trip, we had comfortably explored the little heavens of Czech Republic. These heavens were towns such as Karlovy Vary, Telč, Litomyšl and Česky Krumlov. Most of these towns could be covered on a day trip from Prague!
Bohemian Switzerland was long on our bucket list ever since and we took the chance to explore it without further delay by making it a part of our trip. Having experienced the quaint vibes of Czech towns earlier, I had great expectations from Bohemian Switzerland. But it was also important to plan the trip well and explore accordingly.
Where is Bohemian Switzerland?
Bohemian Switzerland, also known as Czech Switzerland is a picturesque region in the north west of Czech Republic. It is an extension of Saxon National Park, a part of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains in Germany.
Bohemian Switzerland is 2 hours away from the Czech capital, Prague by road. It’s the perfect destination for a day trip from Prague.
Many people also take this day trip from Dresden, Germany.

Planning with Northern Hikes
We got in touch with our friends from the Northern Hikes, a leading adventure company in Prague which organizes some well-designed hikes from Prague to the Bohemian Switzerland region. They recommended we make the most of the ongoing winter season and try their Narnia Labyrinth and Bastei bridge hike. This meant, we were going to travel across 2 countries on our day trip from Prague. Also, this tour was apt for beginners and could be taken by anyone. So, we booked ourselves on the tour from Prague by coordinating with their team and were all pumped to explore this dream destination.
Tour: Narnia Labyrinth and Bastei bridge hike
Duration: 10 hours
Inclusions: Pick up & drop from hotel/hostel, transport, guide, breakfast, a lá carté lunch (inclusive of vegan options), water

We were all set for the big day, to explore a destination that was on our bucket list for a while.
Apart from sleeping early to rest well before our hike, we ensured we had the following list in place:
