Type of Trip
Come discover the unique vertical world of the Czech Republic! We will go climbing on the Czech sandstone of the Bohemian Paradise and other areas. The Bohemian Paradise is a very picturesque area, 100km northeast from Prague. The landscape is extraordinarily diverse, there is also very special flora and fauna.
Joining me, you will get to know the special characteristics of sandstone climbing. For example, we can go to the Prachov Rocks or the Adrspach Rocks.
We will go to the Mazes of the rock towns. I will lead you up to the top of beautiful rocky spots. During the journey, we will encounter chimneys, cracks, edges and walls. There is a special technique that I will teach you called “building” where we stand on top of each other’s shoulders. We will scramble across cracks or balance in the smearings of Teplice Rocks, Adršpach, Bišík or Cross Hill.
During the climbing trip we might meet extreme climbers. Indeed, they are living legends of sandstone climbing. We can share some time with them in one of the typical Czech climbers’ pubs.
There are two rules for climbing in the Bohemian Paradise. Firstly, it’s forbidden to climb when it’s raining or it has rained in the last 24 hours. Secondly, chalk can not be used.
The 3 main reasons why I like to guide my clients here are:
– Unique history of climbing and great sandstone material;
– Limited protection with rings and knots only;
– Beautiful landscape and genius loci.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
- If you choose a 1-day trip, we usually start climbing at 8:30AM and finish in the late afternoon.
- Multi-day trips are also possible, and in that case I can arrange accommodation. There are different options from camp to hotel.
If you don't have all the necessary equipment contact me, I can help you with that. I can provide rope, helmet, harness and carabiners, as well as climbing shoes but the latter are limited. All FREE of charge.
About the Guide
My name is Vojtěch but everybody calls me Watt. I started climbing when I was 16. In 2009 I got certified as a mountain guide.
My favourite activities include climbing, MTB, skiing and trail running.
These are some of my favourite crags: Prachovské skály, Bišík and Zbiroh (sandstone in The Bohemian Paradise) and Moravian Karst (limestone).
One of my best climbing achievements was in Val Qualido (Italy), also the north face of Malý Kežmarský štít, in the High Tatras (Slovakia), and many more!
