    Come and join me for a full day of thrilling ice climbing at Bud’ Fit, in the Giant Mountains here in the Czech Republic.

    Located in the Elbe Valley region, we will take a short 4 Km hike from the famous Spindleruv Mlyn Ski Resort. After that comfortable, scenic hike, where you will leave behind the bustle of the resort, we will reach Bud’ Fit, and a beautiful Ice Fall in the quiet wilderness of the valley. Upon reaching the Ice Fall, I will provide instructions and lessons how to safely climb it. And for those people with experience, I will provide specific tips and advice whenever requested.

    The Giant Mountains are beautiful in the summer, but absolutely stunning in the winter. Furthermore, they definitely live up to their name. They are enormous in actual size, as well as the wonder they inspire in anybody lucky enough to see them.

    There are several beautiful spots in the Giant Mountains that would be perfect for ice climbing. However, Bud’ Fit is the only one where you are authorised to do so. Thus, making this excursion truly special, as you will be doing something truly exhilarating in the only place you can. And once you reach the top of the ice fall, the view will absolutely blow your mind.

    So join me, let me guide you up an incredible Ice Fall in the amazing Giant Mountains, in the only spot in the Czech Republic where it’s legal to do so. 

    I’ll be awaiting your message.

    And if you want to join me for a Ski Touring Expedition in the Giant Mountains. You can also join me here.

    More info

    While the guide ratio is 4 clients for 1 guide, I much prefer only 2 people, so I can provide you with sufficient attention in order to make your day as amazing possible.

    I provide harness, ice axe, helmet and crampons; however, I ask that you bring your mountaineering shoes, but if you don't have any I can at least provide you with ski touring boots.


    About the Guide


    I've been skiing and climbing since my early childhood. I graduated in 2005 from the Univerzity of Hradec Kralove with a Master degree at the Faculty of Education. Since then I worked as a history and PE teacher. I was also running an Outdoor sport's club at that time, spending plenty of time climbing, skiing etc. with my students.

    In 2009, I became a full time skiing and climbing instructor.

    2009 – APUL C ski instructor
    2010 – APUL B ski instructor
    2011 – APUL telemark and snowboard
    2012 – ISIA Mark (International ski instructors association)
    – MSMT climbing instructor and Mountain leader
    2013 – entered the UIAGM mountain guide education
    2014 – passed the UIAGM Aspirant exam.
    2015 - Succeeded the UIAGM / IFMGA final exam

    Spending your holiday with you would be my pleasure. Whether in winter on a ski tour (in Czech Republic or Austria) or in summer among the spectacular sandstone towers.

    It will be, with no doubt, a very pleasant experience for all of us. I'm an easygoing, friendly and reliable person with a good sense for responsibility.

    Don't hesitate to get in touch with me !

    Awesome day of climbing provided by Jan. Extremely knowledgeable about the area and a fantastic climber and guide. This trip to Hruboskelsko was amazing in every way and climbing the towers an unbelievable experience. Would highly recommend this trip to all climbers, whether new or experienced.

    Jan was amazing, professional, funny, and inspirational. The way he dealt with us and individuals whilst having a joint venture. The climb was amazing, the route selected was perfect for ability. I proposed to my girlfriend at the summit after that amazing ridge. She said yes, Jan was in on it and accommodated this without sacrificing safety. We look forward to using Jan\'s services again. He was by far the best IMG I have used. Words cannot thank enough for the experience.

    We climbed locally in Turnov, which worked out perfectly. Jan was flexible and professional setting up a meeting spot and drove us to the climbing. He struck a perfect balance of grades and led routes I did not want to lead, and gave \"laser guided beta\" for gear on routes I did lead. We spoke of climbing, history, love, life, and politics while enjoying beautiful scenery. His local knowledge was obvious and enhanced the whole trip. While Czech sandstone is not for the faint of heart, Jan made this side of climbing very accessible and pleasurable far beyond my expectations. 10/10. If this trip is of interest to you, book with complete confidence.
