Bicycle tours in East Moravia - campsites and attractions nearby – main image

Moravia is a paradise for cyclists! While visiting attractions in the south of the Czech Republic in June, we also got to know some of the best paths in the area, which are diverse and will appeal to both families with children and more experienced cyclists. When describing paths and attractions, I provide the campsite where it is best to stay, but we wrote more about the campsites themselves in this article: Interesting campsites in Moravia . In this article you will also find an interactive map of campsites.

Baťův kanál


The bicycle path along the Bata Canal is over 50 km long. Driving along the canal, you pass through 13 locks. It is also possible to take your bike with you to the boat and return to the starting point on board the boat. There are many paths leading from the Bata Canal, which will take you to, among others: to the White Carpathians, where there are several MTB paths.

The best campsite in the area is Slovácký dvůr , but if you prefer to stay closer to the canal, there is a camper parking lot right next to Petrov Marina, where you will pay CZK 200 for one day.


Along the Baťův canal you can relax in many cafes and marinas. There are many playgrounds and other attractions for children, such as a mini zoo. I also recommend straying from the main bicycle trail and looking for other attractions in the area. We chose to visit the Strážnice open-air museum, which is located next to the park and the Castle, and also visit the wine shops "Wine Beaches".



Ten kilometers from the town of Żlin - in Otrokowice - there are several MTB paths. There is a gentle path from Otrokovice to Vizovice along the Drevnice River .

Żlin is a city that will be appreciated primarily by architecture fans. The history of this city, created by the founder of Bata, is very interesting and if you want to learn more, it is worth going to the free viewing point on the top floor of the skyscraper, where the Tax Office is currently located. This building used to be Tomasz Bata's office. The paternoster still works in the building!

In the city, it is worth taking a walk in the park and going to "Filmový uzel Zlín", a film studio with an interactive museum and workshops where you can create your own film animations.

You can eat the best dinner with a view of the city of Zlin at Restaurace Bistrotéka Valachy .


A little further from the center (8 km), it is worth visiting the Zlin Zoo and the Leśna Palace . Here you can park your camper in the free parking lot no. 5.

The best camping in the area is: Eurocamping Bojkovice

Luhačovice - spa town


Luhačovice is the most popular spa town in Moravia. It has been modernized in recent years, but beautiful historic hotels remain here. The most pleasant thing in this place is certainly a walk along the entire health resort, where you can drink free healing water at the same time, but for fans of two wheels there are 3 short bicycle routes around the health resort, ranging from 14 to 20 km in length.

Lower and Upper Beczwa


This area is surrounded by great flat bike paths running along rivers, as well as several interesting routes through very diverse terrain for fans of cycling climbing.

This first variant is a trip along two rivers: Dolna and Górna Beczwa. We went along the Dolna Beczwa with our 4-year-old, who did great.

In this area, it is worth visiting the Wallachian Open-Air Museum, i.e. the Valašské museum in přírodě . This place is friendly to cyclists. Bicycles can be left in a secure, lockable bicycle room. You can spend the whole day in the open-air museum. It is a huge area with several restaurants and kiosks selling snacks and souvenirs. There is plenty of space to relax at every step.

On the way along the Upper Beczwa you can rest at the lake here called Czech Balaton . There is a grassy beach, a restaurant and a ski jump. There is also a parking lot for campers.


However, if you like sharp climbs, it is worth heading from Górna Beczwa towards Ski Center Kohutka . You can also go there by car or camper and at the top just admire the views or walk the trail along the Slovak border.

If you choose to start along the Upper Beczva Velke Karlovice, you must know that there is also a parking lot for campers with electricity! There is a ski center and an aqua park in Velké Karlovac.

The best campsite in the area: Camping Rožnov .

Path (walking) in the treetops


Finally, I suggest a hiking path near Rožnov pod Radhoštěm, which is one of the most popular attractions in the area, namely the treetop path: Stezka Valasska . It is worth booking a whole day in this place, because this place offers several mountain hiking trails. You can go to the top by chair, car or camper. At the top there are beautiful traditional buildings as well as modern restaurants. The most popular trail is the walk to the Radegast peak.

The best camping in the area: Camping Rožnov .
