In summer there are two chair lifts open in Špindlerův Mlýn that will take you to both the main peaks in this area - Pláně and Medvědín. Both run all year round, with brief breaks in the spring and autumn for maintenance. In summer they run every half an hour from 8:00 to 18:00.
The four-seater to Medvědín takes you to 1,235 m above sea level, from where you can set off on any number of beautiful ridge tours or take one of the many attractive cycling routes. Medvědín is also the ideal starting point for paragliding.
Another good starting point for trips is the top of the chair lift in Svatý Petr – to Pláně (1.196 m a.s.l.). In the summer this four-seater is also used for the nearby Špindl Bike Park, which downhill bikers are sure to enjoy.
