KARKONOSZE NATIONAL PARK

GIANT MOUNTAINS – POLAND

Often called mini-Alps for its similarity, Giant Mountains don’t have to be introduced to big mountain biking fans. Set in Karkonosze National Park, mountain bike trails and hiking paths run across Poland and Czech Republic’s borders and are set to the breath taking views of valleys, rivers, lakes and medieval castles. Rolling forest trails, technical single tracks, hardcore rocky downhills, and simple cross country paths for less skilled riders. It’s simply an undiscovered mountain biking gem and is a perfect place for MTB experience for all levels and tastes.

KARPACZ

Karpacz is a small picturesque spa and ski resort town set at the foot of Giant Mountains.This is where you will sleep, eat and relax during the time off the bike saddle. Great food, Saunas, Aqua Parks, Therapeutic Salt Caves, and a tone of other attractions make it a great place not only for MTB experience or skiing holiday. Here’s also a mystery hill, where cars and bikes are rolling without any help up the hill against gravity.

WEATHER

Between months of mid April and October, you can expect temperatures of 18 to 25 C. Sometimes a good weather can start as early as in March, although you can still expect snow in higher parts. Temperatures of 30 degrees C are not rare in lower parts of Karkonosze National Park during summer time. You’ll also have a chance to ride above the clouds. It is a frequent phenomenon in Karkonosze National Park which is called thermal inversion. It means that the warmer air is higher than the colder. So, the higher you are, the higher temperature might be.
