Lanov - Cerna hora - Velka Upa (MTB)
Lánov Hotel Harmonie - Pec pod Sněžkou Velká Úpa, Náměstí
From Lanov by Vrchlabi this tour is the fastest way to the mountain of Cerna hora and the northward mountain range towards the highest mountain. The tour is very demanding and you should be in excellent physical condition. You will bike on tarred and gravel paths. The ascent to the mountain range from „Bönischovy boudy“ is very steep and full of stones. If you are not very well trained, we recommend to push your bike for the few hundred meters. The last ascent on the top of Cerna hora and the trail to Sosna farm are technically a bit difficult but even with only a good trekking bike you should make it without problems. You will have a stunning view of the Krkonose Mountains once you leave „Bönischovy boudy“. On this trail you will also see the highest mountain of the Czech Republic „Snezka“ and other mountain ranges. The Sosna Farm is a small milk farm that offers products from their own production. You may, for example, enjoy delicious bread with cottage cheese and yoghurt. For the return way you may want to take the cyclobus that has a bus stop in Velka Úpa in Pec pod Snezkou on the town square.
