Ride a camel or take a walk
through the treetops

In summer, the Jizera Mountains are suitable for hiking and cycling. But even if you are not fond of either, neither you nor your children will be bored here in the UKO. Here are a few activities you can find in the surroundings. The Jizera Mountains are great for sportsmen, but even if you want to avoid cycling and long hikes on foot on your holiday, you won’t be bored here. Take advantage of your holiday to try scootering or horse riding.

#summer at UKO

Horses and camel

Yes, you hear right. Horses in the mountains surprise no one, but one of the inhabitants of the Jizera hills is the two-humped camel BAK. If you want to meet one in person, just take a trip to Hrabětice. You will surely meet him on the local meadows. The best are the meadows near the parking lot in front of the Arnika guesthouse. There he roams in the company of horses on which you can book a ride. They will also saddle you with a BAK upon agreement.

Forest camp at UKO

Looking for a suburban camp for children? How about trying a children’s forest camp in the heart of the Jizera Mountains in Bedřichov in the UKO yoga centre? Treat your children to days full of experiences, joy and new friendships. We will make sure that your children enjoy their days to the full and learn and try out lots of interesting activities.

More information

On scooters

In the Jizera Mountains you will find many marked trails for scooters. You can choose according to your abilities. The routes are colour-coded according to difficulty. Popular are for example the descents from Královka. If you don’t have your own scooter in the area, there are plenty of rental shops where you can rent scooters and electric scooters. Just choose. You might find one at Rope park in Bedřichov.

In the Bikepark

Sure, we said in the intro that you can do without a bike, but how about trying some nice trail riding? There are several in the Jizera Mountains. You can find such a mini-trail right in Bedřichov. You will find a kilometer-long circuit full of switchbacks, bumps, climbs and descents near the cross-country skiing stadium. It was created thanks to the energy of the Jizera Fifty runners. Bikeparks for the more demanding ones can be found at Tanvaldský Špičák, Nové Město pod Smrkem, Ještěd or Rokytnice nad Jizerou.

Stretch your body

Near the rope park in Bedřichov you will find a natural gym where you can stretch your body on various natural exercise benches. Everything is hidden in the pleasant shade of the forest. You can work off your adrenaline in the rope park or directly on the artificial climbing wall. If it is full, you will find another rope park at the Artur guesthouse.

Behind the llamas on Černá Studnice

This is a more distant trip. On the opposite side of Jablonec nad Nisou from Bedřichov you will find the Černá Studnice lookout tower. Not only can you enjoy the view of Bedřichov, Královka or Slovanka from its gallery, but at its foot you will also find a nice playground and an enclosure with alpaca llamas. Be careful not to get spit on!

Children’s indoor playrooms

You know the drill. Sometimes the weather is not conducive to outdoor activities. In Jablonec nad Nisou and Liberec you can find several children’s play areas. In the Rýnovka shopping centre it’s Monty’s play area. Other playrooms are at the DaFi café and in the Centrál department store on the first floor there is the Človíčkov playroom. You can have a cup of coffee in peace and possibly take care of business calls, and the children can play properly. In Liberec, there is the Babylon Funpark in the entertainment complex and another giant game room next to Dinopark in the Plaza shopping centre. It’s called Tasmania.

Christmas in summer

If you like Christmas decorations, make sure you make a trip to Jablonec nad Nisou and visit the new permanent exhibition of the WoW Museum of Glass and Jewellery. It is entirely dedicated to them and you can enjoy the Christmas mood even in summer.
