Lech Holidays

Stylish, picturesque village, with FREE use of all lifts and walkers' buses

Known for its sophisticated skiing and royal connections in the winter, Lech in the summer is a chocolate box village with a river running through and wonderful opportunities for walks and wildlife spotting. There are exclusive boutiques to browse plus cafes and an excellent outdoor swimming pool surrounded by pine forests and lawns. The unspoiled beauty of the area, with pretty lakes dotted around rugged terrain, is unique to the region and is ideal for rambling as well as more adventurous hiking. The Lech Summer Active Card, FREE (Summer 2020 from 23 June) to all Inghams guests, includes free use of the lifts and walkers' buses, as well as entrance to many attractions including a lovely open-air pool in the forest, themed hiking trails, the kids active club and regular day or evening entertainment.

The Kids Active Club for children from the age of four is open from Monday to Friday. Without parents, but under the supervision of professional staff, the young guests go on an adventure: fishing in Zug fish pond, splashing in the Lech forest swimming pool, pottering and exploring in the forest camp with its tree house or in the Indian tepee with a large barbecue area next to a small stream - there is plenty of variety, fun and excitement. The Kids Active Club is open on weekdays from approx 4 July to 9 September from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm.

In Lech you'll have one of our reps in resort who will know the local area and can assist you with any queries.
