Why not take a walk and surround yourself with the same nature as squirrels by following a path leading through the crowns of majestic trees? This in now possible in the Czech Republic – but only at the Lipno Treetop Trail.

 
The wooden Trail (Map) construction was opened at the beginning of summer in 2012. Located in mixed forest, it is 372 metres long and reaches a height of 24 metres. The entire trail is barrier-free and convenient for baby carriages as well as wheelchairs. 

At its end is a 40-metre viewing tower, which offers a view of alpine peaks and nearly the whole of Lipno Lake, as well as the beautiful landscape of the Šumava and Novohradské Mountains. The trail includes 18 adrenaline stops and the longest dry toboggan run in the Czech Republic with a total length of 52 metres, which curls down from the viewing tower.

More information about the trail and further contact details are available here.
