Giant Mountains on cross-country skis: from Harrachov to Labská louka and around Mumlava

  • Venue: Harrachov

The starting point for the trip is the mountain town of Harrachov, from which take the cable car to Čertova hora. A quick descent from the 1021 m high mountain will take you to the Janská skála along the blue mark and from there (for a while downhill, for a while uphill) to the crossroads at Ručičky. After enjoying your grog and the view of the plains above Rokytnice, continue upwards (following the green sign) up a slightly steeper hill to the Dvoračky cottage. The local famous muffins can be another boost to the most drastic section of the road, almost 2 km of steep climbs below the Saddle of Lysá hora, which on clear days offers the most breathtaking views of the Kozelský ridge and the side where Špindlerův Mlýn lies.

You can relax at the Růženčiny garden with a beautiful view of the Harrachov part of the mountains. This is followed by a slight ascent to Pančavská louka, from where you can easily see Labská bouda. However, it lies in a hollow, while our route continues along the ridge to the Elbe meadow. If you don't have enough yet, you can extend the trip to the Elbe Spring and the Czech Booth (and further to Vosecká - but it is usually a worse road), the others descend along the green sign to Vosecká bouda, where you can replenish lost energy and count bruises after agile descent .

From Vosecká bouda there is a sharp descent to Krakonoš's breakfast and from there a relaxing 6 km around the river Mumlava, which flows through a beautiful valley with a perfectly groomed cross-country trail. Along the way, it is possible to stop at the Mumlavský waterfall, which is located about 1 km above Harrachov at Mumlavská bouda. The whole moderately demanding route is 20 km long. We do not recommend driving in bad weather and strong winds. Please also note that the mobile phone signal does not work well on the ridges of the mountains and it is therefore very difficult to contact the mountain service.
