We travelled to France with 2 teenagers, 18 and 16, and an 11 year old. Although we were staying in a chalet belonging to friends of ours, we participated in activities arranged by Mountain Adventure Camps.
From the very beginning of arranging our trip till the day we left, I cannot commend Matt and his team enough for their commitment to making our holiday the best family holiday we have had. From replying to my emails no matter what day of the week, down to switching activities around to accommodate us, nothing was ever too much trouble. They even took the responsibility of looking after our youngest Mark during the activities so we could get on with enjoying the challenges that many of them brought! Everything was arranged in advance for us so we knew exactly what we were doing each day, essential with teenagers as often apathy can set in and very little ends up happening! No arguments, no stress just loads of fun.
We didn't even have to worry about directions to the various places as the team picked us up. The activities were geared to all levels and each of us had our favourite....whitewater rafting, mountain biking, via ferrata, hiking with overnight stay in a refuge (which was definitely a different experience!!) to name a few, many of which we had never done before. As usual Matt and the team were at hand for reassurance and encouragement if needed.
We laughed so much and the added advantage of being having so much fun during the day, meant that we had lots of things to talk about over dinner in the evening, which was fantastic family time.
As a family we had a fabulous time as an activity holiday caters for younger kids, as well as teenagers and even for less adventurous parents! It was a great mix of activity and relaxation. It would not have been what it was though, if it had not been for the staff of Mountain Adventure Camps, whose organisation, dedication and patience made it a holiday we will all remember and hopefully will repeat. A huge thank you to Matt and the team for everything!
