You can begin hiking, cycling or mountain biking right from the accommodation. Hiking or cycling along the mountain slopes to the summits will be rewarded with sightings of deer, marten and fox. The Giant Mountains are geared for tourism but without the large crowds you see in other places. The town of Pec pod Sněžkou (26 km) has a cable car which goes to the top of the highest mountain in the Czech Republic: Sněžka, 1602 meters. From here you have a magnificent view of the Giant Mountains, the Eagle Mountains and the mountains of Poland. In the area you can enjoy many activities such as paragliding, rafting, tobogganing, pluck (abseiling) and climbing (the high rocks of the Adršpach). You can visit the Monkey Park (climbing trees with ropes) or swim in a pool in Trutnov (15 minute drive) or in a large lake (or smaller lakes) at a site where access is free. You can take a sightseeing flight from the airport in Vrchlabí (11 km). In Mladé Buky (11 km) there is an excellent 9-hole golf course. When one thinks of Dvůr Králové, one immediately thinks of the zoo / safari park which has been officially designated as one of the 150 major zoos in the world. And an access card costs just slightly more than 4 euros. Trutnov (20 km) is a shopping town where the large superstores are open until 8 pm. On the market square there is a statue of the mythical figure Krakonoš, the ruler and protector of the Krkonoše Mountains (Giant Mountains). Vrchlabí, the oldest and most northerly town on the Elbe, has a baroque monastery and a museum dedicated to the Giant Mountains, not to mention good shopping and entertainment facilities. But there are many more opportunities in this beautiful area. They are listed in the information packet located in your accommodation. A pleasant vacation in the Czech Republic awaits you! What's more, the food is delicious and inexpensive!
