Where to go on a trip with a dog: Krkonoše - Luční bouda (13 km)
Thank you Míša for your contribution!


If your starting point is Špindlerův Mlýn-Svatý Petr, as was the case with us, an approximately 13 km long trip awaits you with less than 700 meters of ascent. If you go from the center, you have to count on about three kilometers more.
The route leads on different types of surface - mainly over stones and partly on an asphalt road, which is not shaded at all.
Route Kam with the dog Luční bouda
The level of difficulty is medium to higher (it involves a relatively steep ascent and descent, moreover, in more difficult terrain).


Our starting point was Svatý Petr, from where we went to Goat's Backs on a red steep climb over stones. Next, a pleasant straight line awaits you up to Luční bouda. From Luční bouda, we followed the signs to Výrovka, where we connected to the green route, which led us back to Špindlerův Mlýn (here it is mainly a steep descent over stones).
Where to go with the dog in the Giant Mountains
In Špindlerův Mlýn, there are countless options where to stay or eat (from cheaper guesthouses to expensive wellness hotels). Most accommodation charges a fee for a dog - we recommend that you find out in advance so that you are not surprised on the spot (some hotels ask for 600 - 700 CZK/dog/night). If you only come for a day, parking is also not a problem (again for a fee).


Of course, you have many options in Špindlerův Mlýn and then on the way to Luční bouda and Výrovec. We never encountered dogs being a problem anywhere.
There are also several places along the way where there are benches and where you can have your own snack.
Canis Lab Hike Krkonoše


There are stairs on the way to Kozí hřbety (those "gridded" ones), which may bother some hairy people.
Some sections have sharper stones, others on hot asphalt, if the sun is shining, more sensitive paws may appreciate boots.
You can enjoy beautiful views most of the way.
From Luční bouda, it is only a short distance to Sněžka, so if you have energy left, you can extend the trip. :)
Above all , in the second half of the trip, you walk partly around the water that flows right next to the road, so the furry one can drink and cool off.
Between Luční bouda and Výrovka is the Memorial to the Victims of the Giant Mountains.
In winter, we also took the route, but it seems much more challenging and a little less safe (to Kozí hřbety, you go along a narrow path and on the right side you have a precipice all the time, the descent to Špindle is very steep and sometimes quite slippery).
