Oranginas provide four regional walking articles for the Czech Republic. They are as follows:


Bohemia South East
Report of a five day hiking trail, acircular walk in an area of southern Bohemia taking in the surroundings of the beautiful city of Cesky Krumlov. The walk also takes a little side step to Bavaria in Germany and a short section of the route in Austria.

Very fine views including Lake Lipno.

The route to the mountains leads you through almost virginal nature and remote villages where time seems to stand still.

Height: 600-1085-1360m.

Krkonose/Giant mountains
Report of a five day hiking trail in the Krkonose or Giant Mountains in the North West. A trail in the borderland of Poland and the Czech Republic taking in the ski resorts of Pec and Spindleruv-Mlyn (spinning wheel).

On foot a great area to discover an open landscape.

A fantastic route to the mountains through green spring colours in the valleys, rare flora in the natural reserve, flowers and brooks, sometimes a farm, silence, a little village and ruins and chapels.

Highest point: the Snezka mountain (1602 m.)

Czech Republic, North East
Report of a four day hiking trail through the fascinating nature in the borderland between the Czech Republic and Poland, between Adrspach, Broumov and Mieroszow. Highlights are perhaps the marvellous and strange mass of rocks you come through: the Rock Town Loop. The route in Poland gives an insight into a farming landscape before the European Common Market period…….. a varied area, mountainous, alternating forest and large open spaces, quiet idyllic villages. In Poland beautiful wooden farmyards.
Height: 600-800m.
