The resort and its surroundings offer many activities for the whole family, friends, or couples.


  • Skis & sledges

Skiing and cross-country skiing made the Jizerské Hory mountains famous – or at least contributed to their popularity. You may recall the famous Jizerská Fifty with a start in Bedřichov. The Jizerská Highway with its 200 km is one of the most popular cross-country skiing areas and offers over 20 starting points for cross-country skiers.

Jizerky Ski Arena

Here skiers will find their own. Skiing in the Jizerské Hory mountains includes the so-called Jizerky Ski Arena, which brings together the ski resorts of Tanvaldský Špičák, Severák, and Bedřichov with a unified check-in system. You can enjoy up to 17 km of ski slopes, twenty lifts and cable cars, and in good weather also beautiful views of the surroundings, either from the cable car or from the lookout tower.

Smržovka Sledding Track and Filip Ski Lift

Do you want to enjoy sledding? In the Jizerské Hory mountains you will have fun sledding in Smržovka. From Černá Studnice, there is a nearly four-kilometre-long toboggan run leading to Smržovka. If you don’t have your own sledge, you may rent one in the Filip Ski Resort in Smržovka or in the restaurant in Černá Studnica.

Jizerská Fifty

The popular Jizerská Fifty, a cross-country race with an abundant history, uses the cross-country trails of the Jizerská Highway. Take the whole route or choose one of the shorter sections, e.g. from Smědava to Bedřichov.

Harrachov Ski Resort

The Harrachov Ski Resort is divided into three separate ski areas: the Čertová Hora, Zákoutí, and Amálka. Čertova Hora offers a total of four slopes with a total length of 6.5 km. Practically the entire surface of the slopes is equipped with artificial snow. Transportation to the top of Čertova Hora is provided by two four-seat cableways and two lifts. The Zákoutí Ski Resort is more of a ski school than a full-fledged ski resort, but it still has a lot to offer. Lessons are mainly for children, but the whole family may sign up. You may ski on three slopes with a total length of 420 metres. Each slope is also equipped with its own lift and complete artificial snowmaking. The resort also offers night skiing. You may also enjoy night skiing on the 400-metre-long Amálka slope. Amálka also offers a ski school and technical snow.

Jakuszyce – cross-country skiing trails

Although this area is outside the Czech Republic, it has become a favourite for many Czech skiers. Jakuszyce is in the Polish part of the Jizerské Hory mountains, just over the border a few kilometres along the road behind Harrachov. Around the local biathlon area, there are a number of groomed race tracks, which are then followed by tracks more suitable for tourists, such as the track near the upper reaches of the Jizera River. The area is connected to the Czech part of the Jizerské Hory mountains by the border crossing between Jizerka and Orle.

Jizerka settlement and ruptured dam

Jizerka is an excellent hiking base, whether you are planning a short walk or a more demanding whole-day hike. For example, head to the basalt hill Bukovec, the dominant feature of the entire the Jizerské Hory mountains. Walk the nature trails or climb the rocks (Čertův Kámen, Houba, Pytlácké Kameny), from which you will have a view of the whole settlement and much further.
