Detailed route description

The ride begins at the lower station of the Medvědín cable car. It's up to you whether you take the cable car or the Krkonoše highway to Horní Mísečky. Accept the fact that a 7.2 km route awaits you from the lower station of Medvědín to Vrbatova bouda, a height difference of 640 m. This part of the route takes 3:15 minutes. We will choose the cable car to Medvědín.

After exiting the cable car, descend about 950 m along Vodovodní cesta, where you connect the hill to the Krkonoše highway in the direction of Vrbatova bouda. Now you have a more challenging ascent with a difference in altitude of 240 m, a length of approx. 3 km and a duration of approx. 1:15 h to Vrbatova bouda. Please note in advance that this trip from this part - from Vrbatova bouda to Labská bouda and beyond - is by no means suitable for hiking. It is only suitable for cross-country skiers or ski mountaineers.

A few tens of meters from Vrbatova bouda is the Mohyla of Master Hanč and Vrbata as a silent reminder of the tragic event of two friends who died in these places from exhaustion in a snow storm. From Mohyla Hanče and Vrbata you descend along the bar markings, pass the Hanč monument and continue via Pančavská louka to Labská bouda.

Be extremely careful in these locations when there is fog and poor visibility. As has been the case several times, there is a high risk of falling into the Elbe mine. Be extra careful and always follow the markings on the bars. You walk along the edge of the Elbe mine, where snow slopes form in winter, which can easily break off when you leave the marked route.


Winter trip to Pančavský waterfall

Yes, you are just passing the Pančavský waterfall. Unfortunately, it hides under a crust of ice and snow for most of the winter. If you would like to take a winter trip to Pančavský waterfall just because you see Pančavský waterfall, this is not the best idea in the winter season. You can see in our Photo Gallery.

You are at Labská bouda and you enjoy a well-deserved rest and refreshment. The current weather at Labská bouda on online webcams is available HERE and HERE.


Winter trip to the source of the Labe

If you have time, you can take a short winter trip to the source of the Labe. The popular Labe source is only 1 km away from the Labe Bouda - one way. But in advance we want to discourage you from a winter trip to the Labe source. There is 1.5 - 2 m of snow at the Labe Source in winter and in most of the winter only a part of the Labe source signpost is visible. The Labe spring itself is hidden under lots of snow in winter.

You set off in rest and under Labská bouda you follow the green route in the direction of Martinova bouda. You follow the Vysoká kola slope. Again, be careful and respect any warnings and cautions from the Mountain Service. You go down to Martinova Bouda. Did you know that Martina Navrátilová spent her childhood here? It got its first name just after Martinova Bouda. A 1.5 km descent awaits you to Medvědí bouda and again you go down the hill 2 km to Medvědí kneena. Welcome to civilization!
If you are very tired, there is a bus stop at Špindlerův bouda in Medvědí koleno, or you can call GoTAXI here - contact HERE.

However, we continue in the direction of Dívčí lávky along the blue - here is another bus stop to Špindlerův Mlýn. On Dívčí lávky, turn green on the right in the direction of the Myslivna restaurant. You are in a nice place where the confluence of the Labe and the Bílé Labe. Spindleruv Mlyn is only 2 km away.

You have a beautiful day trip on cross-country skis or ski alps along the ridges of the Giant Mountains. You had the opportunity to see the Mohyla Hanče and Vrbata , visit the controversial building - the hotel - Labská bouda and get to know Martinova bouda - the birthplace of Martina Navrátilová. Above all, you got to know a beautiful part of the Giant Mountains. We believe that you are looking forward to your return here and you will repeat this tour in the summer!
