SPLENDID DAY

WALKING TOUR FROM HRUBÁ SKÁLA CHATEAU TO VALDŠTEJN CHATEAU, LOCAL RESTAURANT BOUČEK ́S FARMSTEAD, RAFT/SCOOTER TRIP FROM MALÁ SKÁLA TO DOLÁNKY, DLASK ́S FARM

This trip begins at the Hrubá Skála chateau, which stands atop two sandstone towers. A pleasant forest track runs via the Adam’s Balcony lookout in the direction of the Valdštejn castle. Panoramic views of Hrubá Skála come at the Mariánská Lookout, where you can also see the ruins of Trosky, Kozákov Hill – the guardian of the Bohemian Paradise, and, if the visibility is good, you can see the weird and wonderful Ještěd tower in the Jizera Mountains. Valdštejn itself is the oldest castle in the Bohemian Paradise region, and was built by the ancestors of the Lords of Wallenstein (Valdštejn). The walking distance from the Hrubá Skála chateau to the Valdštejn castle is approx. 4 km.

From the Valdštejn car park you will be driven to MALÁ SKÁLA – a picturesque village on the banks of the Jizera under the slopes of the Vranov Ridge and Sokol Hill. It is a tourism centre as well as a starting point for treks, scooter and bicycle rides, or boat and raft adventures. The village boasts a number of homesteads of the Jizera region type, the best-known of which is Bouček ́s Farmstead, where you will have the opportunity to taste delicious Czech cuisine. Greenway Jizera is an attractive and safe path running along the river, ideal for a walk or bike ride, roller skating or scooter riding. It follows the same route as the boat/raft trip.

RAFT - MALÁ SKÁLA – DOLÁNKY (ABOUT 8 KILOMETRES)

The Malá Skála weir under Žlutá plovárna is always navigable and although the current in the sluice gate is strong, a passage by boat is completely safe even for inexperienced crews. Bouček ́s Farm is located next to the bridge on the left bank. Two kilometres further down, in the village of Křížky, there is an interesting place for a stop and, potentially, for an overnight stay.

The section from Malá Skála to Dolánky (Turnov) is the most frequented part of the lower Jizera but even there the river is much quieter and less crowded than the Vltava, Sázava, and Lužnice in the summer. In the beautiful valley, clear water teems with trout and grayling. During drier periods, it is easy to wade through the shallow sections of the river. Zrcadlová koza, a traditional boater pub on the left river bank, invites for a stop before reaching Dolánky.

CHILL OUT SCOOTER TRIP (ABOUT 7 KILOMETERS)

A scooter ride on the Greenway Jizera path is easy and undemanding. You will ride along the river from Malá Skála to Dolánky. During your trip you will see wide meadows with grazing sheep and cows. In Dolánky, you can visit DLASK ́S FARM, which is a former farmstead and a village magistrate’s office built in 1716 – a typical example of a building from the Jizera region. The building houses permanent exhibitions of the Museum of the Bohemian Paradise dedicated to rural dwellings and agricultural tools.
