Orlice River for water sports

The Region of the Eagle Mountains and foothills is interlaced with rivers ideal for water sports, which are still relatively little known; however, their popularity is on the rise. The rivers are the Divoká and Tichá Orlice, which merge into one river in Albrechtice nad Orlice, which then continues in the direction of Hradec Králové as the joined Orlice River.

The Tichá Orlice River is navigated from Lichkov. The upper and mid segments are navigable in spring or after rainfall and are ideal for experienced water sportsmen. The lower segment is for beginners and is navigable all year round.

The Divoká Orlice River is navigable from the borders with Poland above Orlické Záhoří. The upper and mid segments flowing through forests and valleys all the way to Potštejn are for experienced water sportsmen. The upper segment is navigable in spring until April. The mid segment is navigable from Klášterec nad Orlicí depending on how full the dam is. The lower segment is also for beginners and is navigable until summer. The Zemská Brána is considered to be the most beautiful yet most dangerous segment, which is only navigable when the water level is higher. The Litický Oblouk is also relatively dangerous. It is somewhat difficult to carry boats at the embankments of the Pastvin Dam. The river flows through the Protected Landscape Area of the Eagle Mountains in the upper part and its entire course is marked as the Orlice Nature Park, where visitors are obliged to adhere to strict rules and regulations.

The Tichá and Divoká Orlice Rivers then merge in Albrechtice nad Orlicí into the united Orlice River, which is navigable all year round and is also ideal for beginners. There are a number of nice beaches along the way and the banks are usually loamy.
