Are you attracted to hiking in winter? Today we will introduce you to 5 places that are definitely worth a visit. Both skiers and tourists will enjoy themselves here. Let yourself be carried away by the frosty atmosphere and magical views.
The Krkonoše Mountains
Prvním naším zimním tipem budou samozřejmě Krkonoše v severních Čechách. Kromě klasického lyžování ve středisku Špindlerův Mlýn nabízejí tyto hory i ideální podmínky na skialpy a běžkování. Vyzkoušejte například zimní výstup na Vrbatovu boudu. Čeká vás několik přírodních zajímavostí a neskutečné pohledy na sněhem pokrytou krajinu.
The Ore Mountains
Another great place is the Ore Mountains, which turn into a cross-country skiing paradise during the winter. As a starting point, we recommend the town of Boží Dar, from where there are so many great routes that it would be a shame not to visit here in winter. The popular Krušnohorská magistrála connecting ski resorts awaits you here.
The Brdy, which offers many groomed forest paths, certainly does not lag behind the above-mentioned mountains, and if you are lucky, you will also come across trampled tracks. For example, you can go to the dominant of the Příbram region Třemošná or a little deeper into the Brdy forests to Skelná Huť. You can read more about these trips here.
What would be winter tips without recommending Šumava! Snowy forest nature, frosty air, footprints, falling flakes and silence all around, just a Šumava idyll. Popular places for tourists and photographers include Povydří, valleys of rock formations, snow-covered spruces and meandering Otters. The extensive area of the Šumava National Park includes many reservations and protected landscape areas, the most famous of which is the Boubín Forest.
Snow Covered Ještěd
Finally, we recommend a visit to Liberec and nearby Ještěd. You can reach the transmitter on foot or by cable car. In the vicinity of this architectural gem, there are several slopes to choose from for both beginner and experienced skiers. If you are lucky enough to have nice weather, you will get a magnificent view of the whole of Liberec and the surrounding area.
For the second time we will stop in the highest Czech mountains – Krkonoše – to climb up the highest mountain. You will learn where to start, how to prepare and what to expect from a long climb and a ridge trek during which you will pass some of the highest Czech peaks.
Today we set out to one of the most visited tourist areas in the Czech Republic, the majestic and highest mountains of the country - the Giant Mountains. Our goal will be the largest and oldest mountain cabin of Luční bouda (1410 m above sea level).
The Brdy is a place to visit not only in summer. They are magical as well when covered in snow. Both Houpak and the former Jordan impact area were only recently opened to the public. Houpak is an ideal place with perfect panoramatic vista. People who like long trips will love it here.
If you like cross-country skiing, Sumava is the best place for you. The landscape is beautiful and its relief of mild uphill and long downhill terrain makes it great for cross-country skiing. When you are not into fast paced skiing on Sumava's trails, you can enjoy beautiful nature and local specialties. I present several tips to make interesting trips around Prasily, Srni, Modrava and Kvilda.
The unmistakable and easy-to-spot dominant of the North Bohemian landscape is one of the most visited places in the region. And this holds true in every season. The summit is easily accessible by cable car, a network of hiking trails and abundant curves of the asphalt road. Upstairs you will be amazed at the view of the entire northern half of Bohemia, as well as the unique multifunctional rotary hyperboloid building. It's Jested.
Are you not sure where to go in the Sumava? In case car is not a option for you, Mount Spicak and its surroundings are great option. The nature is amazing, vistas great and there are two glacial lakes.
If you are heading for a trip to our highest mountains, Spindleruv Mlyn is one of the best bases at any time of a year. It lies at the very end of the road, which leads from Vrchlabi through the valley upstream of the Elbe river to the foot of the Krkonose Mountains (Giant Mountains).
Liberec lies in the north of Bohemia and is a statutory town with approximately 104,000 inhabitants. The town is abundantly frequented during the winter season. For the rest of the year, people are mainly driving to the aquapark or to the IQLANDIA Liberec planetarium.
There is an incredible number of trails around Boží Dar. Especially for families with children, this is the ideal vacation spot that one can do all year round. The Krušné Mountains are not too high, so they can take a longer trip with their children. In winter there is a wealth of ski slopes and cross-country trails.
This year's unpredictable weather and more difficult travel conditions are increasingly encouraging us to explore our homeland. Fortunately, there are more than enough opportunities for great use of free time in our country in the Czech Republic. This time we are going to the Ore Mountains for the weekend, we plan to spend the night under the aisle near the village of Měděnec, a sports day in the Klínovec Trail Park and relaxation by the pond.
Vrch Nad Maráskem is located near the village of Míšov in the southern part of Brdo and is not one of the most famous. Which is a shame, because it offers great views and a walk through the surrounding forests, but at this time it is rather a welcome fact. You will avoid crowds of excursionists. A hike to this hill can easily be combined with a visit to nearby Třemšín.
