Actively exploring the České Budejovice region
The tourist region of České Budějovice is an ideal place for lovers of exercise and similar activities. The region is connected by the rivers Vltava, Malše and Lužnice, where you can enjoy a lot of untraditional entertainment. The big advantage is that there are often bike trails along the rivers – and you can easily reach more distant places on the flat terrain.
You can enjoy our programme and actively explore the water. One of these places is the Whitewater Area of Lída Polesná , which is one of the best of its kind in Europe (members of the Czech national team, e.g. for the Olympic Games in Brazil, trained here). The big advantage of the area is that it provides more sections of varying difficulty, where you can ride rafts, kayaks or paddleboards. You can ride freely between the gates of the Whitewater canal on a raft or kayak.
If you’re interested in paddleboarding , but not in white water, you can go downstream in a larger group on the Vltava or Malše river. Sail through the historic centre of České Budějovice and see it from water level, or set off on the Vltava via Hluboká nad Vltavou (e.g. to Purkarec). You can ride with us on classic paddleboards, pedal kayaks, pedalboards or megaboards for up to 10 people. In all of this you can be accompanied by an experienced instructor.
A great stop is Sports and relaxation resort Hluboká , where there is a pier which reaches out onto the Vltava River. The local amusement park offers rope obstacles (height of 8 meters), as well as a teambuilding couple’s circuit, where the obstacles were made especially for this park and it is necessary to overcome them through team cooperation. In addition to the rope park, you can play beach volleyball, adventure minigolf, and use a baseball pitch and simulator, or local sports equipment rental.
The goal of a paddleboard or cycling trip can be a ferrata (iron way) that runs over the water – more precisely over the Vltava River in the Karvanice area. It is a beautiful place, unique in nature, which offers a great combination of nature and sports experiences.
Lovers of adrenaline activities can use the Hněvkovice waterworks, where there is space for water sports, such as water skiing or a zone for jet skis.
