Awesome, awesome, awesome!
Awesome holiday! We booked this based on the website and reviews and we were not disappointed. We were two adults plus 14, 17 and 18 yr olds. Julie, Paul and Justine are the dream team as far as we are concerned! They made the holiday a huge success with great attention to detail and unending flexibility. For example:
Julie drafted the week knowing what we wanted to do, she monitored the weather constantly and adapted our activities and their timing to max out our enjoyment, always keeping us up to date. She is a whirling dervish with the ultimate black book of contacts in the area!
Paul ('Tall Paul!') is an unending wealth of local info and finest chef in the valley and mountains. He was very considerate to our party re everyones needs and cooked up some fantastic meals. Especially welcome after a long hike.
Justine was renamed 'Wonder Woman' by our daughter on an esp challenging hike involving blisters! She bridged the age gaps seamlessly and guided us in a friendly way. Like the others she has been in the area for years and it shows, every random question she knew the answer to!
The chalet was perfect. Plenty of space, sauna, hot tub and everyone slept well and comfortably. Located really well with a lovely 30 min river side walk into Argentierre (nice cafes, restaurants, shops etc).
We did the Family Mountain Discovery Week with tweaks. If you get the chance the White Water Rafting is fantastic plus trip up to the Aguille du Midi is worth the ticket.
Thank you all at Mountain Action Holidays
Amazing time had by all!
White water rafting, cayoning, climbing assault course, mountain biking, hiking and picnics by the lake - best holiday ever! I recently went to beautiful Chamonix with my husband and three kids (9,10&13). Mountain action holidays did a superb job at organising activities for my husband and kids whilst suggesting nice cafes and gentle hikes for me and my 6 month baby bump.
The chalet was also amazing, with views to die for and was really clean. I was really surprised with the quality of the food too, I love cooking so usually unimpressed with the quality on these sort of holidays. However, the food was freshly made, really delicious and served with a smile!
We're looking forward to coming back next year!
An adventure packed weekend with all of the trimmings!
My husband booked this weekend as a suprise for me. It was the best trip I've ever been on that included a perfect balance of amazing adventures, delicious food, plenty of relaxation time, superb company and a luxurious chalet to stay in with the kindest and most generous hosts I've ever had the pleasure of being looked after by!
Day one's adventures included Via Ferrata and e-biking, day two was our very wet day which involved canyoning (absolutely awesome) and canoeing, and day three started with a beautiful parapont, a nice walk into Chamonix followed by an afternoon tea back at the Chalet.
In between all of these activities was plenty of time to rest, use the hot tub at the Chalet, visit some local bars/cafes and eat delicious freshly prepared food (made by Paul). Paul and Julie had organised everything so that we did not need to worry about a single thing. We shared our adventures with 4 other people who we did not know, but by the end of the weekend we had made really great friends who we're still in touch with.
I cannot wait for my next trip with Mountain Action Holidays and 100% recommend you to get in touch with them if you want a break that will give you an experience that you will never forget. Thanks Julie and Paul, it really was an amazing birthday weekend!
OMG! Perfect long weekend
I booked the trip to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday and it exceeded all expectations. I knew the location and activities would be amazing, but wasn't quite prepared for Julie and Paul. They totally made the trip for us. Julie's main aim is to make the time be as perfect as possible and she did not fail. On hand whenever needed and nothing was ever a problem for her. Then there is Paul who kept us fed watered and transported. Fed is an understatement as everything Paul produced was fresh tasty and simply amazing. Again just like Julie nothing was a problem for Paul and our enjoyment and relaxation was paramount.
A mixture of high adrenaline during the activities and chilled out bliss at the Chalet in between. The Chalet is luxurious and spacious and perfect in every way.
I am trying to find something to be negative about but there simply isn't anything.
All you need to worry about is your flight. Transfers, activities, accomodation, transport and food are all included.
It is clear that the ethos of Mountain Activity Holidays is not on profit but on customer satisfaction and enjoyment.
I cannot recommend them highly enough and we will 100% be returning.
Thank you Julie and Paul xx
Life Changing Weekend
All I can say is WOW… Everyday was full of excitement and laughter. Julie was amazing and had everything organised perfectly and in combination with Paul cooking us wonderful food throughout the weekend i don't have anything negative to say at all. Ticked off most of my bucket list in one weekend… not many people can organise that for you…. Thanks Mountain Action Holidays
