This is the longest and most demanding of all the proposed routes, but it is international. You must book the whole day for it. There are a lot of hills and fast descents along the route, but you will also have the opportunity to compare the charms of the Polish and Czech sides of the Karkonosze mountains. From Jelenia Góra you will go through Kowary. It is worth stopping here to check out the monuments to the most famous people in Polish cycling, which is on the main pedestrian street, near the fountain. Next you will climb to the Przełęcz Okraj (Okraj Pass). After crossing the border you will be in Horni Mala Upa, with a beautiful view of Śnieżka mountain from the other side. There will be a long downhill ride as a kind of reward for the recent difficult climb. Ride through Horni Marsov and you will reach Janske Lazne, at the foot of Cerna Hora (Black Mountain). This is a famous ski resort, and is the only spa resort on the Czech side of the Karkonosze mountains. In Vrchlabi, known as the „Gate of the Karkonosze Mountains” you should see the palace located in the city park. Next, you will go to the Spindleruv Mlyn, sometimes called the “Val d’Isere of Central and Eastern Europe”, because of the well-developed skiing infrastructure. Before entering the town, you should see the picturesque reservoir with the dam on the Labe river. You will then go back up the mountains to reach the asphalt road and Przełęcz Karkonoska (Karkonosze Pass). You will then be in Poland again, and there will be a long ride down to Przesieka or Borowice.
