Biking trips

We have prepared for you three biking trips altogether which will lead you to the most beautiful lookout towers of the Bohemian Paradise. The starting point of the first two trips is the town of Turnov and the third trail begins in Jičín. None of the trails exceeds 40 km. However, you have to bear in mind that the lookout towers are situated on hills and so you will be in for a solid ascent to the altitude above 600 m. The trails usually lead along secondary roads and along forest or cart roads in some shorter sections. This is to avoid cars and to enjoy the beautiful landscape of the Bohemian Paradise. That is why mountain or, possibly, trekking bikes are more suitable for biking. All trails go near the railway at some points thus it is possible to shorten the trip if you are tired or have trouble with your bike. We wish you pleasant moments spent in the bike saddle and far-reaching views from the lookout towers.

From Turnov to Dubecko and Kozákov

This trail will take you to the highest point of the Bohemian Paradise, to Kozákov. You will also visit the Dubecko lookout tower on the way there.
