3. From Prague: Sazava River Canoe Tour for All Levels
Haven’t you ever experienced going down a river on a Canadian-style canoe? Leave the city behind and let yourself capture by a deep gorge that Sazava carved just outside the capital.

The guide will give you detailed instructions at the beginning of the trip and you will have enough time to try steering the boat on a flat water before we start.
