Hello Discovereres!

 

You are cordially invited to a hiking and sightseeing trip to Kokořínsko!

 

Kokořínsko is a picturesque natural area just 40 km/25 miles north of Prague where you will find peculiar sandstone rock formations, beautiful lakes and villages with lovingly restored folk architecture. The area is named after its main landmark, the Kokořín castle.

 

We will go on a tour of the castle, hike to the rock formation Pokličky (lids) and wander in a labyrinth of corridors between sandstone blocks in Skalní město Bludiště (literally means “rock town Maze”)

 

To make the experience even more interesting, we will travel both ways on a retro train which used to run on Czechoslovak railways from 60’s to 90’s.

 

Our group will be led by a professional guide and certified mountain leader Michal Hartl who will be helping us to make the most of the trip. Learn more about him on his website.

 

 

LOGISTICS

 

We will meet at 8:15 AM in front of the main ticket office at the Prague Main Railway Station.

 

 

We will take a special train service, featuring a retro diesel locomotive and wagons. After about an hour of travelling on the train, we will change for a private mini-bus taking us to the starting point of the hike.

 

We will stop for lunch in a nice local restaurant (not included).

 

Expected arrival time back in Prague is 19:00.

 

You will have to wear a facemask on the train and on the bus!
