Take shade from the summer heat under an umbrella of woodland and the enchanted landscapes of the Bohemian Paradise, on the northern edge of the Czech Republic.

This route from Turnov to Jicín is rich in history; take a step back to rural Middle Europe and walk through pine forests, colourful meadows and unexpected sandstone rock formations – with a touch of magic in the form of fairytale castles along the way. The six-night trip costs from £535 pp (two sharing), including B&B, luggage transfers, full Walker’s Pack and local telephone support. Flights extra.
