30 minutes at the transmitter!

Ideal trip with the whole family

From the top station of the Skalka cable car you can take a relaxing walk to the transmitter on Ještěd. The path is marked in as "Hřebenová cesta" or in our map as route No. 4 and takes about 30 minutes at walking speed, the elevation is only 100 meters.

Our Skalka cable car meets the strictest technical parameters. On the way up, along the bike park track lining our new ski slope, it provides a spectacular view of the Ještěd transmitter from an unusual perspective. On the way down you can enjoy the view of the town of Liberec, Bedřichov and the Krkonoše Mountains. The cable car is a great access point to our activities both at the top and at the bottom, where a great relaxation zone for young and old has been created.
