Here you can see short specifications of interesting trips on this river:
Vyšší Brod – Rožmberk nad Vltavou
Length: 10 km/2 hours
Let's enjoy one of the nicest voyages in Europe. You can have a rest in the snack “U tří veverek“ distant cca 3 km from the start. You find the first weir after cca 800m on the left side. It's navigable when you have a raft but you should take the canoe over. Under the weir are small ripples which slowly merge into fluent flow. The next weir comes after 2,5 km in Herbertov. We recommend to pass it thru the chute on the right side. The last weir is in Rožmberk nad Vltavou, the chute is on the right side. After a short voyage you can see a beautiful panorama with the towering castle Rožmberk nad Vltavou. This trace is so various, that it's suitable not only for advanced but for absolute beginners too. And if you have more time you can end the trip with the visiting of the castle.

Český Krumlov – Zlatá Koruna
Length:17 km/5 hours
This is the next one interesting trace. After the start in Nové Spolí you will pass four weirs thru Český Krumlov. The first is harder to pass so we recommend to take the boat over. The second one you can drive thru without any problem. There is a chute on the right side for canoes and on the left side is built-up a chute for rafts. By the third weir is again one long chute on the left. The last weir in Český Krumlov is situated right in the centre under the castle. It's a wondeful spectacle. Big fun to pass it in the raft and an adrenaline adventure on the boat. It's possible that you will want to pass it several times. Than you can expect a long journey thru romantic forests. Two kilometres before the end of your voyage is a posibility to refresh with something to drink. In Zlatá Koruna is the last weir of your ride.
Zlatá Koruna – Boršov nad Vltavou
Length: 20 km/5 hours
If you look for calm, romantic voyage with a possibility of the visiting the ruin Dívčí Kamen, than is this trace right for you. The beginning is in the monasterial town Zlatá Koruna. You will enjoy 9 calm kilometres of woods and meadows up to the ruin Dívčí Kámen. The reward for 15 minutes of walk will be beautiful view on the landscape along the river. Afterwards you can refresh yourself in the buffet (let's taste our beer). Cca 2,5 km before your destination are both weirs, the first is small and so it's passable but there is near the second one, two metres high and impassable..
Lenora – Soumarský most
Length: 6 km/1,5 hours
