Sporting Life

Sporting Life

We know that Sporting Life can be more than just a hobby or interest - it's a way of life. The world is literally your playground - with so many activities on offer in so many destinations - whatever your interest we can use this to not only inspire your travel but also make it the sole focus.

From catching wild rainbow trout in Chile, playing tennis against a professional on Necker Island, horse-riding in Botswana, or golf at St. Andrews - we can tailor your holiday accordingly. We also encourage our Members to share their interests and experiences with one another by way of recommending their personal hidden gems and seeking out the best and most exclusive parts of Sporting Life.

Sporting Life also runs through our Calendar of Events programme, with a horse-riding trip in Botswana planned for 2020 - call us to find out more or book your place.

Ski the White Ring Circuit full day

Lech & Zürs

Spend the day skiing the 22 kms White Ring, which is a spectacular panoramic trip amidst impressive Austrian Alpine peaks. Created according to the vision of the Vorarlberg pioneer Sepp Bildstein about 60 years ago, the ski circuit is now one of the most beautiful and impressive ski runs in the Alps. From the top of Rüfikopf peak at an altitude of 2,131m, the White Ring runs between jagged boulders before the seemingly infinite majestic mountains appear before you in the distance.

Stop for a light lunch at Balmalp, which is a modern chalet building located conveniently at the top of the Zug ski lift and serves good food, such as charcuterie boards, local cheeses and freshly made pizzas.

After a hard day’s skiing head to the Aurelio, which is an iconic hotel in the centre of Lech and offers gourmet dining in simple yet very elegant interiors with a relaxed atmosphere. The cuisine here really is out of this world, not only in taste but also in its stunning presentation.

Champagne ski boots and horse drawn sleigh for dinner

Lech & Zürs

Strolz is world renowned for its handmade ski boots - they are custom made by craftsmen and it is said that once you have a pair of Strolz boots, you are a customer for life as they are made with orthopaedic expertise and precision to suit your individual feet. Now in the 3rd generation, it is still a family business and in addition to ski boots and handmade skis, there are 6 floors of ski equipment, ski wear and fashion to tempt you. Sip a glass of champagne at their bar in-store whilst your boots are being made, or alternatively they will deliver them to your hotel. The service is impeccable!

Early evening take a ride on a horse-drawn sleigh where you can see the charming village of Lech and stunning countryside, ride along snow covered country pathways to the romantic church in Zug and onto Kristiania Lech. Sip an elegant craft cocktail in the Rote Bar before dinner at the Kristian Restaurant which is a relaxed and easy-going, friendly restaurant and serves traditional Austrian dishes fused with contemporary lounge music. We recommend their surprise tasting menu, where the chefs put all their skill and craftsmanship into creating a truly gourmet experience with inspired cuisine.
