Igls is the ideal destination for those who want to combine a lakes holiday with culture and sightseeing, being just three miles from the Tyrolean capital of Innsbruck. We at the Co-operative Travel have Igls lakes holidays at the best possible rates.
Overlooked by the majestic Nordkette Mountains and surrounded by lush pastures and forests, Igls is ideal for holidaymakers wanting a healthy outdoors experience not too far from the city. With easy airport transfers and regular trams and buses, the resort offers endless opportunities for sightseeing at Innsbruck, with the Golden Roof, Hofburg Palace, museums and other attractions. The resort is also just one kilometre from the mediaeval village of Lans and its pretty swimming lake of Lanser See, prized for its green environment and crystal clear fen waters.
Igls offers numerous opportunities for excursions further afield. Enjoy a cruise at Achensee, home of the Tyrol’s largest lake; see how crystal glass is produced at Rattenburg; visit the fairy-tale Bavarian castle of Neuschwanstein, or enjoy a rousing sing-along at Munich. Other options include the Passion Play village of Oberammergau, the botanical gardens of Patscherkofel and Trauttmannsdorf, and the pretty spa town of Merano, in the Italian Tyrol. There’s also plenty to do in Igls itself, with quaint shops, bars and restaurants clustered round a picturesque village centre, as well as concerts and traditional Tyrolean evenings.
Igls is also the starting point for countless walks, from easy strolls along the Inn and Wipptal valley, to more challenging climbs up the Glungezer and Patscherkofel – the latter having a cable-car for an easy ride to the summit. There’s no need for a map and compass, as the Igls Tourist Office has a weekly guided walks programme.
There are many other activities on offer at the resort, including summer bobsleighing, horse-riding, and cycling, golf, Nordic Walking and tennis – or you can take a refreshing dip in the lake. Igls holidays are full of opportunities, so call us at the Co-operative Travel to make your booking now.
