“Stacja” is a perfect starting point. You can choose between the Karkonosze and Izera trails. The Kamieńczyk and Szklarka waterfalls await you, as well as the nearby peaks – Szrenica and Wysoki Kamień. You can also use a chairlift to get to the higher parts of the mountains right away, which will extend your walk and enable you to visit Czech mountain huts for pilsner and goulash dumplings. Remember to check the weather in the mountains before you set off.
The Karkonosze and Izera Mountains are known as Cycling Country, and Szklarska Poręba lies right on their border. This means that it is an excellent starting point. In addition to the normal cycle trails which the whole family will enjoy, there are several attractive singletracks in the area. In just a few minutes from leaving home, you can get to the newly opened in 2020 Szklarska singletrack, and a short car ride separates you from Olbrzymy and Świeradów Zdrój singletracks (here you can take your bike up the mountain in a gondola).
In “Stacja” you can rent electric mountain bikes.
