HARRACHOV 10 winter tips

Tip 1. 
If you like cross-country skiing and you like fast but short runs but are not looking at spending the entire day with this one activity, try a superb cross-country skiing area below the Čertova mountain.

Do not miss a ride on well maintained down-hill slopes located on the Čertova mountain – 300 m from the Apartments Čertovka.

 Why to visit Harrachov?

We are not about to tire you out by a detailed list of activities that you can perform in Harrachov. We would rather offer you couple our experiences and observations that can facilitate your orientation in Harrachov. We personally appreciate Harrachov in comparison with other Czech mountain resorts for its wide range of sport activities that offers both in summer and in winter. We believe that Harrachov is the most universal ski resort in the Czech Republic. We explain why. Harrachov has its unique strategic location in the Giant Mountains with the respect of the vicinity of the Jizerske mountains and the vicinity of Jakuszyce the polish cross-country paradise. If you like both downhill skiing and cross-country skiing and you want to combine both activities then Harrachov is the best address for you.  In Harrachov you can find wide range of well maintained cross-country tracks leading right from the town center. If you want to make longer cross-country ski trips, you can go to Jakuszyce located just behind the borders (from the Apartments Čertovka only 4,5 km away) or you can visit Jizerske mountains (from the Apartments Čertovka 18  km away) where is a huge number of cross-country skiing routes. The last but not least option regarding cross-country skiing is to make a trip to the ridges of the Giant mountains right from the top of the Čertova mountain.

From our point of view for instance in summer Jizerske mountains due to its friendly profile much better opportunities for mountain biking the the Giant mountains. Harrachov as the west center of the Giant mountains is also good place for setting out for hiking trips. Harrachov is simply universal mountain resort in both main seasons. In the section Sport we offer you couple tips where to go, what to visit in Harrachov

We must admit that not everything is perfect in Harrachov. We miss very much some small aqua-park there in case that weather is not good enough for the outdoor activities. Other unpleasant fact is that Harrachov misses a modern grocery shop with reasonable prices. . If you go to Harrachov, you should rather do shopping at home if you do not want to spend a fortune. The nearest good opportunity for shopping is in Tanvald (15 km away, 18 min drive), where you find currently Billa, Penny or Lidl on one spot or in polish town Jelenia Góra (34  km away, 36 min drive), where you can find Tesco hypermarket. The longer driving distance is bought out by lower prices in comparison with Czech ones. Credit card are welcomed and take in account also the fact that you cross state borders, so should have also some personal identity card with you.   with you passport and some credit cards. Fresh bakery you can get in Harrachov in bakeries u Vokřínků or in the small Vietnam market Jana just a few steps away from the Apartments Čertovka.  

In the section “Restaurants” we offer you couple tips where to go out in Harrachov and eat well. Generally we can say that restaurants in Harrachov corresponds to the Czech standard out of Prague where the standard is higher. It will be a bit problem to find in Harrachov a restaurant that bewitches you. We chose couple non smoking restaurants where you get a good meal and we have arranged discounts for you. 

In the section “Activities for the youngest” we have prepared for you couple tips where to go for a walk with buggy in Harrachov or where you can find playground. You can also find information about ski schools for children or what downhill slopes are preferred by families with young skiers.
