This traditional watermens´greeting can frequently be heard in Krumlov during the summer months. The Vltava River flowing through the town is the most popular river for water sports in our country and the trail from Vyšší Brod to Český Krumlov is a classic boating adventure.
Even if you come for a short stay you can experience the town from the boat. You can hire an inflatable boat starting from a campsite before Krumlov and travel across the town on the river in a few hours, including several adventurous sluices. There are plenty of small taverns catering to boatmen at or even in the river. No need to step out of the boat! Inquire at our reception for reservations.
If you wish to get to know our town from the river but rafting is a step too far we recommend a perfectly safe wooden flatboat trip. Seated on a comfortable flatboat, you will be taken on a trip around Krumlov by an experienced boatman who will also be your guide on your river trip (sometimes they sing too..). Our receptionists will be happy to assist you with arranging this trip.
If you wish to admire true professionals you can attend the traditional Krumlov Watermen Marathon with plenty of kayaking stunts.
