Description of Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland family tour

Take the family on a good old-fashioned adventure next summer and you’ll soon be singing the praises of Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic all the way from Prague to Krakow.

This tri-country tour features overnight sleeper trains, astronomical clocks and medieval castles with a healthy balance of outdoor activities and cultural encounters to ensure you all get to experience Eastern Europe from a whole host of uniquely different angles.

Cable cars, fresh coffee and homemade apple cake always make Slovakia a big family favourite with alpine hiking trails leading to waterfalls and mountain huts providing the perfect place for a picnic before riding the rails into the valley below.

White water rafting, mountain biking and the freedom to relax and breath in the fresh air are what family tours are all about with time spent exploring in the Tatra Mountains and on the Dunajec River certain to stay in the memory banks for many more years to come.

Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland family tour

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

All of our activities have a common goal – to minimise the negative impact of tourism on the environment and provide a professional service, with the highest level of respect for the client, and also for nature, monuments and communities.

Nature is a tremendous asset to us all, so we strive to maintain the diversity of local ecosystems and the beauty of nature for future generations. We take care to ensure that our itineraries do not interfere negatively with the environment in protected areas, national parks and buildings of historical significance. During our stays we take care to avoid damaging nature, such as by harming plants and animals, or littering. We also take care to maintain the natural tranquillity of the areas we visit.

On this holiday we will be based in Pieniny National Park and the High Tatras. In Pieniny, we have opted for rafts rather than motorboats on the Dunajec river. While cycling along the banks of the Dunajec river we behave considerately towards other tourists and take care not to litter. National parks hide vast flora and fauna, which is why during hikes in High Tatras you walk only on official tourist paths, and don’t pick plants, litter or disturb wildlife.

You travel from Prague to the Tatra mountains by train, a more environmentally friendly form of transport than bus or plane. The overnight sleeper train is also an exciting and integral part of this family adventure holiday.

Community

We organise tours for small groups who can experience a real adventure first-hand, which in mass tourism and large groups is simply not possible.
We incorporate visits on our tours to places away from the traditional tourist trail and aim to foster a purposeful connection with the local communities that you will visit. We are therefore able to provide more pleasant experiences to understand the local customs, way of life and culture.

On this holiday we will make your stay more pleasant by using family run hotels that are much more friendly than big hotel chains. You’ll also use the services of local guides in Prague and in the Tatra mountains. You’ll spend a day with a local farmer, and experience a horse and carriage ride, traditional Slovak bonfire grilling, milking and cheese making. On this day, you will be helping to the farmer to support his family and community, and to preserve traditions. By visiting the unique Demanovska ice caves and Spissky castle, you directly support the maintenance of these UNESCO world gems.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Rafting down the river between Slovakia and Poland. Tranquil rather than rough due to low rainfall but beautiful scenery.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


We booked caving on our spare day in Slovakia. Great fun and enjoyed toasting marshmallows afterwards

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Staffed locally throughout

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Excellent. Made particularly memorable by our Slovakian travel guide Linda. Her relaxed but efficient style really made the difference. She was enthusiastic with the kids and even organised morning runs and yoga for the adults.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Rafting through the Dunejas gorge, then riverside cycle through a thunderstorm with fantastic views. Also the overnight train - the children loved that.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


The days were very active and we spent a lot of time on our feet. Our children aged 7 and 8 are quite fit and sporty but sometimes found the tours too much. I think a younger or less sporty child might not enjoy the holiday so much.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes - we stayed in hotels run by locals and had guides who lived in the area and were knowledgeable and passionate about their homes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


A fantastic week. We saw and did so much and everything was very well organised. The group leader, Linda, was superb. The hotels were excellently located and spotlessly clean with great breakfasts.
