This flying terrain you can find on the northern border of Bohemian Paradise (Český Ráj), between towns Turnov and Semily. Starting place in above sea level of 744 meters is oriented on two directions: southern 190° and western 260°. Less used is also southern starting place on the left side of the ski-tow. View tower Kozákov and its view platform at the level of 24 m is very well seeable by coming from every direction.
:: To starting place by car ::  
The best way to get to Kozákov is by the way from Turnov to Semily, take turning up the hill in Lestkov village course Kozákov. Next turning to the left is at „U Coufalů“ restaurant, where you will find roadsign to “Riegrova chata” (Riegr´s challet and restaurant) and “Kozákov”. After appr. 200 m you will reach Komárov village and here in second house on the right hand you can find Paragliding Center Kozákov with the largest offer of paragliding equipment shop and also possibility of permanent permit for starting place Kozákov and information offer about this terrain. The journey continues up to the big parking place in front of “Riegrova chata” and view tower on the top of the Kozákov hill. 50 m far from this parking place is situated starting place Kozákov.

:: Start ::  
Starting place is situated in above sea level of 744 meters and it is a big maintained grassy area for at minimum 20 spreaded paraglides. Ideal conditions for flying on Kozákov create southern to western flow on wind speed of 2-5 m/s, when also very good termic conditions are here. Start at west 260° is easy, only at soutwest flow turbulences can occure behind trees (only for more experienced pilots). When you can´t fly over beeches on the right side of the forest path is a runaway space, where one beech is missing. Southern start 190° is for slight slope of starting area slight difficult. On southeast flow only for experienced pilots, possibility of turbulences again. Also here is at the right side of the forest path runaway space with missing tree. Furthermore here is a starting place on the southern side of the hill left from the ski-tow. Here is the possibility of starting at mild south or southeast wind up to speed of 3 m/s, but personally I don´t recommend this start because of adult trees at the way in the down part of the ski-tow where is also very small space for ocasional forced landing.
:: Landing ::  
On your way to the top of the Kozákov hill you will pass two mostly used landing spaces in above sea level of 484 meters on your left side, right behind the way, marked by wind sock. Areas are divide by the field way with plum trees on its side. I recomend landing at the down area No.1 , at the upper area No. 2 land only in the down part of this area with respect to the land owner. Watch the electric cables along the way and also the trees along the field way. Landing is easy or slight difficult due to mild slope of the area. Flying restrictions are none here, I would only like to call your attention on taking care on coming from sloping into termic flying.
