Do you feel like having a break from the hustle and bustle of Prague and explore the Czech countryside whilst savoring gourmet cuisine and craft beer? Then this is the tour you´re looking for!

We will take you to lovely Kokořínsko, known for its unique sandstone rock formations and postcard-perfect cottages. During the tour you will hike through sandstone mazes, enjoy a picnic of homemade Czech food, discover Czech beer during a microbrewery excursion, savour a gourmet dinner and learn a lot about Czech culture and history. Pick our brains about anything that you are curious about, or that might make your visit more enjoyable!



Kokořínsko is one of our favourite spots in the Czech Republic. Not far from Prague you will find this serene, undisturbed and picturesque area ideal for hiking. Come with us to discover this region full of centuries old cottages, deep tranquil lakes and fascinating sandstone formations. Learn how people live here and soak up the beauty of the Czech countryside!



A historic monument, this once steam-powered brewery of Lobeč is a testament to the five-hundred-year old tradition of beer brewing in the Kokořín region. As one of the oldest existing breweries in the Czech Republic it has an amazing history: from centuries old methods of brewing, through periods of modernisation and communism to its current revival. Learn more about the fascinating history of beer production at this brewery, which was declared a cultural monument by the Ministry of Culture in 2009.
