Karlstejn Castle, with its enchanting, monumental architecture, is one of the Czech Republic's most-visited castles.

The journey on classic bikes takes approximately 3.5 hours and along the way, you will pass through several villages along the way where you may stop to take photos and enjoy some refreshments.

Your guide will introduce you to the history of the castle as well as the life of Charles IV and show you around the exterior.

Electric bike riders will stop at the Velká Amerika Canyon, known as the Czech Grand Canyon and view this partially flooded limestone quarry from an observation platform.
