This is an incredible and exclusive opportunity to spend two days photographing one of the most exhilarating and spectacular of all winter sports - Bobsleigh. The world's best Bobsleigh racers will be sliding into Igls for an action packed competition on the Olympic Bobsleigh run.
The fastest Olympic winter sports happen on this ribbon of concrete, steel and ice that zigs-zags down at Innsbruck / Igls - and this competition-proven track plays host to the 2017 Bobsleigh & Skeleton World Championships. The world’s best Bobsleigh racers will battle it out on one of the world’s toughest tracks, the Olympic Bobsleigh Run at Innsbruck/Igls on February 4th & 5th, 2017.
There are both Mens and Womens 2 Man Bob races on the Saturday, followed by the blue riband event - the 4 Man Bob for Men on Sunday.You will have full photographic accreditation for both days. I have secured rooms at two of the highest rated hotels on TripAdvisor in central Innsbruck near the historic Old Town. Local transfers to and from the Bobsleigh run are extra and are a simple 10-15 minute taxi ride which can easily be shared by course attendees to keep costs down.
Innsbruck Airport is incredibly near the city centre at the foot of the Tyrollean Alps. The views at landing and take off are some of the most spectacular anywhere and the airport is only 15 mins from the city centre.
This photo course is possible with a midday/afternoon flight out of London on Friday and an evening flight back on Sunday.
The last flight from Innsbruck to London is on BA on Sunday 5th at 19:50 which allows for ample time to shoot all of Sundays action before flying home. Return price on BA from Heathrow is £135 at the moment.
An alternative is to fly to Munich and get a train to Innsbruck. Munich flights are cheaper (£82 return at the moment ) and far more frequent. The train journey from Munich to Innsbruck takes 1hr 45 mins and cost £16 each way. Flights to Munich could be a good option if you wish to extend your trip or combine it with a holiday.
The rooms are at the 5* Grand Europa Hotel For £116 per night (Double) or at the 4* Best Western Plus Goldener Adler for £103 (Single) to £125 ( Double) per night. Rooms are allocated on a first come first served basis and can be paid for at the hotel on check-out.
