2 Czech Mountains

The ultimate
adrenaline rush
The KrkonošeMountains
are the ideal place for physical
activity. For hiking, Nordic
walking, mountain biking
and –more than anywhere
else – for a rush
of adrenaline.
Krkonoše
Mountains
The Krkonoše Mountains
are the highest Czech
mountain range. From
every perspective, whether
looking up from the foothills
or down from a bird’s eye
perspective, the panorama of
the Krkonoše Mountains is
magnificent. Their individual
peaks are unmistakeable.
Each mountain has its own
characteristic face, quickly
recognizable even by the
occasional visitor.
The border mountain range
is distinctive, with poetically
named rocks scattered here
and there (Dívčí, Mužské,
Ženské kameny – Girls’,
Men’s, Women’s rocks);
some peaks are bare, while
others are covered with
grass and meadows awash
in wildflowers. In some places
the mountain crest drops off
sharply to a valley (Sněžné
jámy, Labský důl), putting
the final touch to the drama
of the landscape.
Tips for
your trips
MTB downhill race course,
Špindlerův Mlýn
Špindlerův Mlýn provides
lots of great opportunities
for mountain biking. You can
take the cableway in Svatý
Petr (the Pláň cableway)
and then choose from three
levels of difficulty – from
the challenging black trail
to the blue beginner’s trail,
which is suitable even for
children. Another trail leads
from the upper station of the
Hromovka cableway; it is
a single trail for experienced
cyclists. You will also find
a mountain-bike hire service
here.
Vertical Park,
Harrachov-Mýto
This new park offers exciting
fun for all adrenaline
enthusiasts who don’t fear
heights. You can try the
climbing wall, the giant
swing, the bungee trampoline
and various rope courses.
Children will certainly enjoy
the children’s trampoline and
the mini zoo.
Bobsleigh Track
and Monkey Park
If the bobsleigh run in
Harrachov or Špindlerův
Mlýn isn’t enough for you,
then you can combine it
with a visit to the adjacent
Monkey Park in either
town. In a natural forest
environment, you can
overcome obstacles on ropes
suspended between trees, and
in Harrachov you can even
slide over a mountain lake.
