The Jizera Mountains

is the northernmost Czech range. The most sought-after sport resorts are Bedřichov, Severák and Tanvaldský Špičák, which are among the most popular ski resorts in the Czech Republic.

Bedřichov

In the last decades, this small original glass-making village has become one of the best known winter sports ski resorts of the Jizera Mountains. It is situated in the central part of the Jizera Mountains, at an altitude of 700-800 metres above sea level. Due to the 90 km of maintained cross-country trails and the starting point of the Jizera arterial route, it is especially popular among cross-country skiers. The famous Jizerská 50 long-distance cross-country race is annually held there as well as other international cross-country races. The resort offers 9 downhill routes and 8 lifts. The slopes are of easy and medium difficulty level.
  • Cross-country route: maintained daily
