Long-distance walking in the home of the lynx - helping protect it
The stunning mountain landscape is probably the largest natural wooded area in central Europe. This is why the lynx was re-introduced here. The trail highlights the plight of this endangered animal, contributing to its protection and survival. A happy coincidence is that the trail also takes you through extremely attractive walking country.
As a hiker on the Lynx Trail you will be challenged. The stages are long with steep ascents. Your senses will also be challenged - keep your eyes and ears open. But don't worry, even if you don't see a lynx, you will feel the presence of this amazing animal.
We recommend that you contact the Lynx Trail Info & Booking Centre before you book.
