Day 3: Cesky Krumlov – Trebon (31-38 miles/53-61 km)
After breakfast you can take an optional tour of the castle and garden. Your cycling route today leads you through the beautiful hilly landscape surrounding Cesky Krumlov. However, the closer you get to Trebon area, the flatter the landscape becomes.
A scenic ride through a picturesque landscape ends in Trebon, also well-known as a major spa resort. In Trebon, you will check in to your hotel and you can visit the Schwarzenberg Tomb. In case you would like to relax in a spa, we can arrange a massage, whirlpool or other services at Trebon's wellness centre. We also recommend an evening walk around the Renaissance town.

Day 4: Trebon – Telc (47 miles/78 km)
Optional tour of Trebon chateau in the morning. Today's trail winds along many ponds and man-made lakes, so typical of this region, to Perslak, the most northern point of Austria. You will follow the border with Austria on the Greenways trail passing through Nova Bystrice, where you will have lunch.
From Nova Bystrice the trail will take you through the forests of the National Park called Czech Canada. The day ends in Telc, a Renaissance town registered on the UNESCO Cultural Heritage List. Houses on the main square in Telc, with facades decorated with typical renaissance graffiti, form the best-preserved Renaissance square in the Czech Republic. It is extremely interesting to compare the differences between the towns of Trebon, Cesky Krumlov and Telc.
