To give us all an excuse to indulge in the magical mountains (from wherever you happen to be in the world right now), this autumn we invited bloggers to share the (mountain) love by joining the Dream of Mountains Challenge. Bloggers connected by their passion for peaks and valleys created inspiring posts about the mountains and what it is they love about them.
From finding true love to life changing adventures, it turns out there were some amazing stories to be told. Bloggers shared inspiring stories from past travels, gave valuable tips and advice, and dreamt of new adventures in far away hills.
If you too are dreaming of mountains, grab a cuppa and have a read of the following posts from the Dream of mountains challenge.

Win a chalet holiday in the French Alps
For some of us, the call of the mountains is real. The mountains bring a sense of adventure that is unparalleled to anything else, they make us feel alive and free, and a million miles away from everyday stress and worry.
Lockdown and travel restrictions have meant mountain lovers everywhere have missed out on mountain time this year. Postponed plans, cancelled trips and scaled-down adventures are enough to make any mountain fan feel a bit blue. To spread the mountain love and provide an opportunity to indulge in the beautiful mountains (from wherever you happen to be right now), we’ve created the ‘Dream of mountains’ blogger challenge.
We really can’t wait to welcome guests back to the incredible Portes du Soleil mountain range, and are giving away a chalet holiday as the top prize. The winner, along with up to 12 of their travel pals or family members, will stay in our brand new and seriously stylish Chalet Harmonie, located in the French alpine town and adventure mecca of Morzine.
What’s more, the first ten bloggers to enter will receive a copy of the remarkable new book Tough Women Adventure Stories: Stories of Grit, Courage and Determination. From endurance obstacle races to arctic expeditions, from mountain climbing to wingsuit flying, from horse trekking to swimming the English Channel, there is much to learn from the true stories of these badass adventurers. Edited by mountain lover Jenny Tough, the book explores the physical, as well as psychological challenges, of expeditions, races and world records, and will leave you feeling inspired and more ready than ever to start planning your mountain adventure. It’s the perfect tonic for anyone suffering from the after-effects of cabin fever.
Read on for how to take part and T&Cs.
