- Summer in Benecko -
Summer in Benecko is just as irresistible as winter. The countryside in the Giant Mountains National Park is perfect for walks and hikes in the environs. However, there are also things to do for those who do not like walking. There is a large number of cycle trails for cyclists which will enable you to see even more of the fascinating countryside from the seat of a bicycle. There are also activities such as geocaching, an inline skating track or the fun "Lufťák" Trail nearby. We are currently also designing a singletrack and a pump track directly in Benecko, because we want to be able to offer you even more.

Two people can ride them at the same time, which will be appreciated by mums and dads with small children.
Children can ride by themselves from 12 years of age.
The ride downhill is 200 m long and there is a tow back to the top.
