Where to go cross-country skiing with children around Harrachov and in the Giant Mountains

  • Venue: Krkonoše

You don't have to worry that the local mountain terrain will be too difficult for children, you will find routes among the Krkonoše trails that every little cross-country skier can playfully manage. In addition, you will love a relaxing ride. These are places where the white footprint is regularly adjusted. This year, thanks to a good amount of snow, there is no shortage of routes in lower-lying places, such as Jilemnice or Vrchlabí. Enjoy a nice family trip in the Giant Mountains!

Around Mumlava in Harrachov

When the cable cars run again, be sure to go on a trip to the surroundings of Harrachov with older children. Let yourself be taken to Devil's Mountain. Then go down to Jan's rock and further to Studenov. The nice journey continues along the damped plain to Ručičky, where you can have a snack at the kiosk. Then turn onto Kládová cesta, which will take you to Krakonoš's breakfast. From here you will descend around Mumlava to Harrachov.

The route measures 17 km, but mostly leads downhill. The most demanding is Kládová cesta z Ručičky for Krakonoš's breakfast. Although it runs along the contour line, it will seem infinitely long (6.5 km) to children. The route can be shortened by 3 km via Zadní Plech, but it is a route for hard cross-country skiers - we definitely do not recommend it for children. It is not groomed, it is very steep and it is mostly covered with a lot of snow. If children do not want to go to Krakonoš's breakfast, shorten your trip at the U Maštale tourist shelter to the Luboch crossroads in Mumlavské dol.

The border of the Giant Mountains and the Jizera Mountains in Paseky

Paseky nad Jizerou is a mountain village in the Semily district, in the Liberec region, in the western Giant Mountains on the border of the Jizera Mountains, on the right side of the Jizera Mine. Here you will find beautiful and not too demanding cross-country trails Paseky - Štěpánka, Paseky - Kořenov and you can run from there to Jizerka.

The "Okolo Hvězdy" and "Okolo Bílé skály" routes are part of the "Krkonoše Cross-Country Ski Paradise" project: This system of modified routes consists of an outer and an inner circuit. The inner circuit measures 7 km and the inner 13 km. Both routes will also take you to the Štěpánka lookout tower.

Vejsplachy in Vrchlabí

Even in the Krkonoše Mountains, you can find routes that are not very demanding and will suit small beginner cross-country skiers. And you don't have to drive inside the national park - you will find great routes around the Kačák pond in Vejsplaš, on the southern edge of Vrchlabí. The routes are regularly groomed and lit until 8 pm daily.

The tracks follow longer circuits towards Horní Branná and Kněžice. There are very nice routes in Kněžice, suitable for families with children, with a connection to Benecko and the Žalý lookout tower.

Countess of Jilemnice

The Hraběnka area with hiking and racing trails is designed for less experienced and beginner cross-country skiers. Here you will find racing tracks almost 20 km long and also a tourist running route "Be fit". This route is truly for everyone; from young children to able-bodied athletes and seniors. The whole route is marked with a yellow and black sign with the words "Be fit" and a picture of a cross-country skier.

Being fit starts at a place called U cells. The route will take you around the chapel of St. Isidore, along the forest to the Hotel Vyhlídka. The path around the Kozinec peak follows, then you will use the Jilemnice cross-country bike path No. 4206 for a while.

Benecké kolečko and the route to Mísečky

For lovers of cross-country skiing, Benecko is a complete paradise. The tracks connected with the nearby cross-country skiing area in Mísečky form one of the most beautiful and largest sports grounds in the Giant Mountains. A system of several interconnected circuits of different lengths and difficulties.

Go with the small children to the Benecké kolečko - it has a mild profile, sensational views of Kotel and the region and is located in the very center of the village. The length of the route is about 1 km, it is regularly adjusted for skating and classics. The starting point is the central parking lot at the Hotel Skalka.

From Benecko to Horní Mísečky (or vice versa) it is 9 km through the beautiful Krkonoše nature along Buchar's road. You can relax on Rovinka, the famous crossroads, where you will find a kiosk with refreshments. Along the way you can visit horses with children on the farm Hucul under Janova hora.
