Recently, I had the pleasure of taking a great 4-day trip from Jelenia Góra in Poland to Zgorzelec (Görlitz), through the Bohemian Switzerland National Park. We rode with my friend 330 km and walked 23 km, enjoying beautiful views of interesting rock formations, pleasant bicycle trails and several great descents :)

Spoiler: No :) But keep reading because it is not just my opinion, but statistical data from which you can learn other factors that are important in preventing this injury.
Chile may be a relatively obscure country, but you couldn’t ask for a more varied natural landscape or a more colourful vibrant culture. Deserts, mountains and lush river valleys sit alongside each other making the perfect setting to observe the upcoming eclipse. Chile also boasts many vineyards producing quality wines and in the capital city Santiago, you can sample both traditional cuisine and exciting new variations.
The Tatras are undoubtedly amazing mountains. Although they occupy a small area, they delight with towering peaks and ridges. Their alpine nature, however, makes them dangerous and some trails are definitely not for everyone. Which trails are suitable for beginner, intermediate and advanced hikers?
For a long time I could not convince myself to go to Breithorn (4164 m). I haven’t been on any four-thousander before – except for Toubkal, where I didn’t reach the summit ;) so it would be a pleasure to reach some, but hiking the ski runs didn’t seem interesting to me. I don’t regret, however. I gained new experiences, and the views, despite these ski runs, were pleasing to the eye.
Pieniny is a small mountain range in the south of Poland and the north of Slovakia. The most famous peaks – Trzy Korony and Sokolica are less than 1000 m high but they offer great views on the Dunajec river and Tatra Mountains. There are also other attractions available like castles and raft trips down the Dunajec on traditional wooden rafts.
Wide, nice valleys, beautiful views from the top of the mountains and the best – 20 km downhill! It was my first biking trip in mountains and I have to repeat it :)
I was never so cold like in Africa! And so afraid for my life like during blizzard in High Atlas. These mountains are gorgeous and I would love to come there again but next time not in winter…
Roháče is a long and demanding trail in Western Tatras. It goes along a ridge at about 2000 m a.s.l. and offers gorgeous views, exposure and steep rocks which force to concentration on every step. I was fascinated!
Reportedly Priečne sedlo (2352 m) is one of the most difficult trails in Tatra National Park. Exposure, chains, steepness etc… That’s why I couldn’t wait to climb there. And that’s why I was disappointed when I got there.
