Ski Resort Sternstein
A smaller family ski resort is located a 20-minute drive away from apartments. If you prefer resorts that are not as busy, we recommend visiting Sternstein. Great facilities with Czech-speaking staff are offered to you for example in the form of a ski school or restaurant. There are three regularly groomed runs that are 1,500 – 1,800 m long; they offer a wonderful view of the Alps.
In addition to downhill skiing, cross-country skiing is also a popular sport in the Lipno area. Under good snow conditions, dozens of kilometres are groomed; trails that you can use for both classic and skate skiing. There are approx. 40 km of trails in the area of the Lipno ski resort between Lipno nad Vltavou and Frymburk. For more demanding cross-country skiers, we recommend visiting Schöneben in Austria, where there are as many as 70 km of trails and it is only a 40-minute drive away.
Lipno Ice Trail
We can boast one of the longest skating tracks in all of Europe. If you want to try the ice on Lipno, you can take advantage of one of the rental shops and head out right from Lipno nad Vltavou. The loop leads to Frymburk, where you can purchase refreshments at a snack bar right on the ice, and then take the trail back through Přední Výtoň. The trail is approx. 10 km in total. You don’t have to worry – everyday quality and ice thickness checks are carried out for your safety.
