Tips

The Krkonose Mountains also called "The Giant Mountains" are the highest mountains in the Czech Republic. Despite quite a low altitude (about 1500 m) they have many Alps-like characteristics thanks to their location. This guide leads you along the main crest, the central-east part from Spindle. Start from Spindleruv Mlyn and return over Vrbatova. There are wonderful views along the way - you'll visit the spring of the European river Labe (Elbe) and meet interesting historical points, where the skiing sport was born in Bohemia.

The best winter season is December - April or summer June-August. May is very wet, often with a lot of snow. The guide suggests taking a bus to Spindlerovka, and you should not miss having lunch in Vrbatova hut, take some money. This is not difficult, but still a serious mountain trip. Make sure you have some spare clothing. Take cross country skies, ski wax and sun glasses. Take mobile phone and wear it close to the body.
