AliKats’ Bucket List Challenge: Blogger Competition – NOW CLOSED

January 20th, 2020 Competitions

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.
