    Skiing and Rock climbing holidays

    Its almost too easy at this point, if I want a great adventure holiday I just give Dane a shout and let him do all the work! Just got back from my 4th trip with Giddy Gally Adventures, another awesome week climbing in the sunny south of Spain after also going on the skiing trip to Sere Chevallier a few months ago. Both trips were exactly what I needed, good sized groups that are well organised, allowing me to have fun and meet people without worrying about all the small details. While everything is well organised the mood of the trips tends to be very informal, its definitely not a case of your tour guide clocking off once he gets you back to the hotel. The guys will go for a drink with the group, join in with the skiing, give you a lift if you get stranded somewhere, introduce you to all the locals, grab things from the shop if they are passing and dozens of other little touches that make these trips less like a business transaction and more like going for a holiday with a group of mates. Speaking of business, considering what is included the prices for these trips are crazy good value. You get collected from the airport, brought everywhere all week, stay in an amazing chalet or villa, all tickets and passes are organised, all gear is provided, all food for the entire week is home cooked and served up, any problems are dealt with personally and at the end of the week you get dropped right back to the airport again. If I was to do a low cost week, sorting all my own travel, staying in some crappy hostel and eating noodles all week I still don't think I'd do it much cheaper than what I paid for this! Doesn't make any sense not to go with them really. Huge thanks to Dane, Lloyd and Austin for another great trip, keep up the good work!

    Ski Trip Serre Chevallier in the French Alps - another awesome getaway with Go Beyond Adventure!

    Adventure holidays at their very best - it's Go Beyond to the rescue again. I don't know how they do it but its always the perfect combination of stress free travel, good food, super accommodation and a fantastic group of people and that's before we even get on to the mountain. I spent an incredible week in Serre Chevallier with Dane and the crew. Nothing is left to chance. With Dane at the helm you have nothing to worry about - one smooth operation. What to expect from the week, well... We walked off the plane and on to our transfer, feet up in the chalet within an hour and a half of leaving the airport. Ski passes, gear and lessons all sorted on the first afternoon. We left the chalet at nine each morning after a relaxed breakfast. Picked up our skis at the bottom of the Arvet lift and after a quick espresso to kick start the morning we were on the slopes for a full day of awesome runs. It was a mixed group but the resort allowed for a mix of social skiing and breaking away if you wanted to do more or something a little more challenging. There was an open invitation everyday for coffee breaks, lunch and après-ski so you always had the option of meeting up with people if you wanted a break or to relax in the sunshine on the slopes with a beer and some company. There was dinner in the chalet each night, except Wednesday when the staff had the night off. Dane organised dinner for the group this night, again there was the option to opt in or out. I have to say I took the easy option on this one and opted in. Dane booked a table at an awesome restaurant - Eau Petit Pont - and we had an incredible meal right in the centre of the village. Right so, awesome and all as all that sounds that is just the basic for awesome on this trip. Dane also organised an amazing trip to the local hot tubs - Bain Nordique - second only to the skiing - this was the absolute highlight of the trip. The group spent a very relaxing and laughter filled evening hosted by the fantastic Gonzo, in hot tubs that over looked the slopes. The perfect way to unwind and ease out the muscles. Après-ski extraordinaire! Oh and how could I forget - if you like cake and who doesn't like cake... There was cake each afternoon in the chalet - if you were quick enough to get home and grab some!

    Skiing in Serre Chevalier

    Go Beyond Adventures made this week long trip hassle free and so easy! From pick-up at the airport and transfer to the chalet, to gear rental (and lessons for those who wanted it), and daily breakfasts and dinners, it was a breeze. Most people on the trip were complete strangers at the beginning, but quickly become friends. The organisation was great and so was the food. But what really made this trip exceptional was the location: the skiing in Serre Chevalier was unbelievable. The ski resort is fabulous and even without fresh snow it was great skiing! I plan on joining Go Beyond Adventure again next year if the trip takes place again.
