Prof. Vasek Hlavac with CMP PhD students Alexander Shekhovtsov and Tomas Jenicek would like to invite you to the traditional CMP canoe trip. This time we are going to the river Otava from Friday May 26 to Sunday May 28 2017.



All the photos from the trip are in a gallery and you can download them as a zip file.


CMP canoeing trips have been organized since 1994. A single bus full of CMP members, ex-members, friends and their families/friends go together for a weekend to have fun and enjoy some nice Czech river.

This year our destination is the river Otava. This river is mostly calm, suitable even for beginners, and surrounded by a beautiful natural scenery. This year, there is a possibility to start higher on the river and to ride also the more adventurous upper part of the river.

To make the trip as comfortable as possible, we will order a bus that will go along the river with us and take our luggage. So you only need to carry a few things in your boat.

Why should you go with us? It's almost sure you'll get to know some new CMP members. It's almost sure it's gonna be fun :) You can say you do some sports ;) And we hope it will be a great experience.

You are also welcome to bring your partners and children!


The date is set on Fri 26 - Sun 28 May 2017.
