Canoe Moldau

Picturesque castles and historic palaces.

This is an ideal canoe tour for families. The Vltava is the largest tributary from the Elbe. This river is safe as rivers go. The water is waist-deep at its deepest. The Vltava’s source is located in the marshy area of the Bohemian forest. Shortly after the source it is dammed to the largest reservoir in the Czech Republic: lake Lipno. This regulates the watercourse of the Vltava that then continues flowing. Our canoe tour starts in South Bohemia in Vyšší Brod and then continues to Budweis. On your way, you and your loved ones will bump onto exciting castles, traditional monasteries and lively towns. You will paddle through diverse landscape with forests, meadows, mountains, corn fields, small islands and river bends. A wonderful experience in the nature for all the family.
