Tourist trails in Karkonosze and the Jizera Mountains
Hiking in the mountains has a rich, centuries-old history in our mountains.
The region of Western Sudetes has a very well-developed tourist infrastructure. The network of hiking trails, leading from the one attraction to another, from hostel to hostel, creates a very friendly atmosphere for mountain hiking and not just for expert hikers.
The major trail in the Sudetes goes through the Jizera and Karkonosze; this is the GSS trail of Mieczysław Orłowicz, marked in red, which starts in Świeradów Zdrój and after passing the whole of Sudety mountains (about 350 km) ends in Paczków. Other trails marked in green, yellow, blue, and black are connecting, circulating, or other versions of GSS.
Moreover, Szklarska Poreba is also the place of thematic tourist trails. During the hiking tour via the chosen path, you can read about the history, culture, tradition and ancient beliefs and customs of the inhabitants of the Jizera Mts.
Enjoy wandering around Szklarska Poreba and explore some of our biggest attractions. Visit the kingdom of Karkonosz, o the Magical Trail of the Mountain Spirit, find the most valuable treasures at the Walloon Trail and spend a nice time wandering with trifles via the Big Sztaudynger Tourist Trail.
However, all nature lovers would enjoy the natural walking paths of the Karkonosz National Park. more ...
