Situated in central Europe, the Czech Republic is a fairly small landlocked country that lacks some of the more dramatic geographical features boasted by many of its neighbours.
However, that does not mean the country is plain by any stretch of the imagination. From via ferratas and rock climbing to ski touring and hiking, the Czech Republic boasts plenty of incredible outdoor activities.
The eastern portion of the country, which runs along the border with Germany, is home to plenty of interesting and unique sandstone rock formations. It is here that hiking, via ferratas and, especially, rock climbing, are the dominant summertime activities. However, many rules exist for climbers in order to protect that landscape. Be sure to read all of them before heading out on your next rock climbing adventure.
Meanwhile, in the eats of the country, the Giant Mountains may be found. It is here that ski touring and snowshoeing are popular wintertime activities. Hiking in the summer is also quote common.
The Czech Republic has a temperate oceanic climate, with warm and sunny summers paired with cold, cloudy and snowy winters.
Most trips to the Czech Republic will begin with a flight into Václav Havel Airport Prague (PRG). From here, the country is very well connected by both rail and bus.
