Rafting & Canoeing

There is no better way to enjoy a hot summer day than floating on a cool river. Český Krumlov is a boater's heaven. So why not make the most of your vacation by spending one of your days on the water? Ride a canoe or a raft to explore a different side of the city, your children will enjoy putting their feet in the water. Being in the middle of nature, listening to the birds sing, sunbathing, or simply sipping beer with your friends makes you feel wholesome.

Ride a comfortable raft or adventurous canoe

Raft is inflatable, more stable but much more tiring because it goes slower. Canoeing, on the other hand, is faster so you don't have to paddle as much but there is a risk of tipping over. Families with children typically favor rafts.

You’ll rent all the equipment in rental shops that are usually located by the river at the start of the journey. Rental shops usually offer a car ride to both the start of the trip and take care of picking you up at the finish. It's better to make a reservation during the high season.

Popular day routes:

  • (30-50 minutes) - Taste of Český Krumlov - You'll take a trip around the city's historic core and get a new perspective of the castle.

  • (1-2 hours) from Větřní to Český Krumlov - Very popular trip from Větřní to Český Krumlov. On the way you’ll see several dams and then you’ll go through Český Krumlov from the beginning to the end. You’ll end up in the boathouse at the Krumlov Brewery, still in the center of the town.

  • (4-6 hours) a route from Český Krumlov to Zlatá Koruna - The first half of the ride takes you through the town's historical district. Then you'll get a rush riding down about 3 weirs before sailing for almost 3 hours through the green valley to the finish.

Our tip: Download the app called 'Vodacka navigace'. It's a guide and navigation on "wild" Czech rivers for your mobile phone. It doesn’t need an internet connection, you have all the data directly with you. Thanks to GPS, you’ll know your location on the river, so you’ll quickly find out what is in front of you.
