Czech Republic offers world-class rock climbing in areas of outstanding natural beauty. We will decide which areas to visit according to the weather conditions and the overall ability of the group. Ideally, we will take you climbing to two different areas so that you can discover different aspects of Czech Republic.
Due to its unique rock features and particular climbing style, sandstone climbing is not easily accessible to regular sport climbers. The protection is very specific and requires good skills as well as a head for committed climbing. Lead climbers have to be able to do moves way above their last point of protection, which is why our highly experienced and fully qualified UIAGM local guides will lead your climbs and ensure your safety.
You do not have to worry about long falls on this trip - all you have to do is to enjoy the bold moves and incredible scenery!
We created this trip in close cooperation with local mountain guides and climbers to offer you the best climbing form the area.
The sandstone in the Czech Republic is very fragile when wet and climbing after rain is strictly forbidden. The rule is that climbing is allowed from 1 up to 3 days after rain, depending on the conditions. So please be open-minded and ready for changes to the itinerary in case of rainy weather. Our local guides will ensure that you will have a great experience on these 6 days and amazing memories of this trip no matter the weather!
This is the mecca of traditional sandstone tower climbing, with climbing history reaching as far back as 1912. The rocks have been protected as a national nature reserve since 1933, and some of the towers reach heights of more than 100m. Set in a picturesque landscape, this area offers a unique climbing holiday experience and it is a very popular tourist destination for its beauty - there are amazing hikes to do as well as rock climbing. This magic landscape caught an eye of many filmmakers - for example some scenes of the Chronicles of Narnia - The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was filmed there.
There are a few local pubs in the Adršpach village, which are popular hangouts for climbers to exchange stories, climbing info, and enjoy the world-famous Czech beer and local dishes.
Labske Piskovce & Elbsandstein
This is a wide gorge with sandstone walls bordering each bank of the Labe river. Set in the Labe Sandstones Natural Reserve and near the Czech Switzerland national park, this area offers beautiful natural landscapes.
The rock here is harder and more solid with different features than in other areas. The Labe gorge offers technical face climbs as well as cracks and corners. The routes are long (20m-50m) and incredibly interesting. While the slings are still the main climbing protection, a lot of routes are now equipped with bolts, making the Labak more of a sport climbing area.
There are also tower climbing areas nearby either on the Czech or the German side of the border, giving us plenty of climbing styles to choose from!
The renowned sandstone rocks of Prachov are located in one of the most amazing regions in Czech Republic, called Bohemian Paradise (a registered National Protected Landscape Area), surrounded by pine forests, fields, lakes, and castles. The curious shapes and unusual beauty of the area has lead to many films being made here. The rock and climbing style of Prachov is very similar to that found at the Adrspach-Teplice Rocks.
