    What to Expect
    This tour takes 10 hours. Make sure you wear comfortable hiking shoes for an oudoor activities. It also might rain sometimes. 

    We will walk along the left bank of the Kamenice river and  across the first bridge and through the stone gate. We will eventually come to places where the path  winds under natural and carved rock overhangs. After a while you'll get to the quay for ferries over weir. On the opposite bank you can clearly see the wooden salmon crossing. We can’t get any further through Edmund Gorge without a boat. After sailing for around 960 m, during  which time we’ll see a waterfall and will learn  some interesting facts from the  ferryman about the river Kamenice and  the surrounding  rocks, almost all of which have names, disembark and leave the quay following the footpath along the left-hand bank along the hillside towards Wild Gorge, go past the small waterfall and through two  tunnels carved out of the rock. Continue alongside the river, which gets more and more wild, until we come to the Mezní bridge. We will continue following the  yellow markers and we’ll eventually come to another quay, where we can see another salmon crossing. We get onto the ferry and enjoy the ride through the Wild Gorge, which is only half as long as the Edmund Gorge and with less traffic, as there are only two boats. We’ve reached  our destination, and continue  from here on foot. The bridge  then takes us across to the right bank. At the signpost we leave the yellow route and follow the blue markers up to Mezní Louka, where our car is waiting for us and where we can have lunch.

    Our next stop is Pravčice Gate, symbol of the Bohemian Switzerland. The territory of the National Park – the youngest of the Czech Republic’s four national parks–forms a part of the larger territory of the Elbe Sandstones, which has been called Czech and Saxon Switzerland for nearly two centuries. A part of the credit for this romantic name goes to Adrian Zingg and Anton Graff, two Swiss painters and teacher at the Dresden Academy in the mid - 18th century. They travelled along the Elbe to visit places between Pirna and Hřensko, and their paintings became the basis of the local veduta works and for the promotion of the beauties of nature. Starting in the second half of the 19th century, the area became very popular, which was supported by the owners of the land, the Kinský and Clary-Aldringen families, by making accessible to tourists the most interesting locations such as the Kamenice River Canyon, Pravčice Gate or the lookouts near Jetřichovice, the Kamenice Gorge.The romantic attraction of the landscape resulted in the establishment of the oldest mountaineering associations in the country – the Mountaineering Association for Bohemian Switzerland (1878) and the Mountaineering Association for Northernmost Bohemia (1885).
