GIANT MOUNTAINS

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.

WEATHER

Between months of mid April and October temperatures tend to range between 18 – 25 C. Sometimes good weather can start as early as in March, although higher parts of the mountains will still be covered in snow at this time of the year. Temperatures of 30 degrees C are not rare in lower parts of Karkonosze National Park during summer time. You might also have a chance to ride above the clouds. It’s a frequent phenomenon in Karkonosze National Park which is a result of thermal inversion during which temperature increases with altitude.

KARPACZ

Karpacz is a small picturesque spa and ski resort town set at the foot of Giant Mountains in Southern Poland. This is where we are based and we recommend this small town for your 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 for MTB holidays base. If you happen to stay somewhere else in the area, that’s not a problem. For more info about accommodation click here.

TRAVEL

The closest airport is 1.5 hour away in Wroclaw with daily flights from all major airports in UK and Europe. Ryan Air and Wizz Air offer ticket prices starting from as low as £40. If you wish we’ll be happy to pick you up and drop back at the airport. Depending where you come from, driving over here can be a little bit longer (14 hours from UK). But it can be cheaper than flying if you are car-sharing. Here’s a quick link to your road planner if you decide to drive.
