FUNDRAISING CHALLENGES

IN THE ALPS

CHX CHALLENGE

UNFORGETTABLE, ACCESSIBLE, INSPIRING MOUNTAIN CHALLENGES

CHX Challenge organises bespoke mountain challenges and charity fundraising events in the Alps and other mountain destinations. We design and deliver unique hiking events of 3 to 7 nights, of varying levels of difficulty, depending upon what is right for you and your team. Basecamp is usually a luxury chalet in Chamonix, but hiking takes place in France, Italy and Switzerland.

The aim is for everyone to challenge themselves and experience the wilderness of the mountains, in an eye-catching and unique event, that maximises fundraising and can be adapted for all abilities.  Focused purely on hiking mountain trails, no technical experience is necessary. All you need is a love of the outdoors, a degree of fitness, a sense of adventure as well as the energy and enthusiasm to raise money for charity.

Our aim is to escape the crowds in an environment where personal challenge, teamwork and charitable cause all combine for an unforgettable experience.

Our events are aimed at maximising fundraising while taking the burden off fundraising teams. In 2019, the groups on our events raised over £500,000 for charity and despite periods of restricted travel, in 2020 we were able to facilitate individual fundraising over £100,000.

Accommodation

Our ‘basecamp’ is a luxury chalet, usually in the Chamonix valley.  Whether you are returning to the chalet every evening or simply there for the first and last night of a trip, this allows you a comfortable and relaxing experience.  In the chalet you will be fed by our fabulous chef who provides 3 meals a day.

For a ‘hut to hut’ trekking adventure, we stay in mountain refuges with dormitory style accommodation (but usually with a hot shower, 3 course meal and bar available!)

Food

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included in the price of the trip. When in Chamonix it is cooked by our chef, who works closely with our resident nutritionist – Alison – to make sure all dietary needs are covered. In the mountain huts we buy lunches along the route, and breakfast and evening meals are all cooked for us in the refuge itself. Again we try to cater for dietary requirements by communicating with the refuge in advance so that they are aware of any special needs.

Please bring your own snacks and energy foods.

Travel

Travel to Chamonix from the UK via Geneva airport and a transfer to the chalet door.  We will provide details of our transfer partner, CVT, on request.

For Italian based events or events aware from Chamonix we will discuss transport options with you directly.
