Skating on the frozen Lipno

Skating on the frozen Lipno

Under the right conditions the lake is transformed into an unbelievable 38 km skating track, connecting the skating circuits at Horní Planá and Lipno nad Vltavou. Putting on a pair of skates is the best way to take advantage of the freezing conditions, but cross country skis and mountain bikes are also possibilities.

The Lipno Reservoir is the biggest expanse of water in the Czech Republic and generally freezes over from December through to mid-March. As soon as the ice reaches the right thickness, access points onto the ice and skating routes are created, the like of which exist nowhere else in the country.

Admission onto the ice routes is free of charge and at your own risk.
