AliKats’ Bucket List Challenge: Now Completed
Earlier this year, we ran the Bucket List Challenge, when we invited bloggers to share their ultimate bucket list of adventures to win a self-catered chalet holiday. We were over the moon to see so many bloggers eager to take part, and were excited to read about their wild and imaginative aspirations for courageous activities both close to home and around-the-world.
Some of our favourite bucket list activities shared by bloggers:
- Dip my toe in all seven of the planet’s oceans from Hannah at Pages, Places and Plates
- See a live lava flow in Hawaii from Shell over at Camping with Style
- Riding Powder in Hokkaido by Zoe at Juggling on Rollerskates
- Visiting the Riviera in Albania from Sophie at Sophie’s Suitcase
- Cycle the West Atlantic Way in Ireland from Hannah at Hannah Outside
We’d like to say a huge thank you to all the bloggers who participated. Below we are sharing all the bucket lists submitted by bloggers, so go check them out now and get inspired for your next adventure!

Finally, a big congratulations to Hannah from Hannah Outside, who won the top prize of a chalet holiday with AliKats Mountain Holidays in Morzine.
Win a week-long summer holiday in your own 7-bedroom luxury chalet or one of ten copies of the adventure-seekers best-friend in book form, The Girl Outdoors
It can can feel like a chore and be hard to find the motivation to write a list of New Year’s resolutions, creating a bucket list of adventures on-the-other-hand, is a fun and exciting way to think about the year ahead!
Revive your love of life by seeking out those activities that you’ve long wanted to do but never quite managed it because life’s simply got in the way. Ride a horse on the beach, hike the Pennine Way, go wild swimming or take your kids on a camping adventure. It’s about stepping out of the daily trudge, getting out of your comfort zone and creating a bunch of experiences that you’ll remember for the rest of your days.
Summer in the mountains is prime bucket list territory. As many people only come to the Alps for skiing, just visiting the blissful mountains is summer, is in itself, a life-affirming experience. From June to the last days of September, the mountains open up to a wealth of fun activities – canyoning, mountain biking, paddle boarding, trail running, hiking, climbing and rafting to name but a few– and the frozen lakes become gorgeous fresh water beaches, where we sunbathe, swim and picnic on long summer days.
Win a summer holiday in the mountains
We’re not the only ones who are mad about summer in the mountains, from cycling down Mount Dalsnibba in the Norwegian Fjords to paragliding in the Austrian Alps, blogger and travel journalist Siân Anna Lewis can’t get enough of the fresh air and adventure fixes made possible by the planet’s natural playgrounds of high peaks and deep valleys.
To celebrate summer in the mountains, we’ve teamed up with Siân, to launch the AliKats’ Bucket List Challenge. We’re giving away a summer chalet holiday in the beautiful mountain resort of Morzine along with ten copies of Siân’s awesome book, The Girl Outdoors, to the first ten bloggers to enter. The Girl Outdoors is an adventure bible for those looking for information and inspiration to get out in the great outdoors for wild adventures. Siân covers loads of activities and adventures, from wild camping and cycle touring to climbing, surfing and kayaking.
The top prize is a self catered chalet holiday in our stunning Chalet de L’Ange. Come alone or bring up to 14 guests! This newly renovated chalet has 7 bedrooms, a sunny BBQ terrace, an outdoor hot tub, and is located close to hiking and biking trails, and the gorgeous natural swimming spot of Lac Montriond.
