8th November 2014: I had a fantastic time with HOFNAR group, Daniel Janes is such a fun & wonderful surf leader, he is very well organized and taking care of everyone in the group especially the 1st time surfer. The instructors at King's surf were very encouraging, gave me a lot of confidence & motivation in the lesson. Hence i managed to stand up for couples of second in the 2nd lesson absolutely enjoy it! Looking forward to the next outing with the group!

29th July 2014: AMAZING WEEK! What a fantastic trip with HOFNAR, so good I didn't want to come home. Dan is a fantastic host and did a great job of keeping us entertained! Within hours of arriving (and several glasses of wine!) I felt like part of the gang. I met some awesome people and made some great friends. The atmosphere is relaxed, the food was great. The chalet is very comfortable and has some luxurious extras such as the hot tub, sauna and pool table. It is in perfect location a short walk to the super Morzine lift for Avoriaz . I had one of the best weeks of my life, so much so that I am booking to go out for NY. I cannot recommend highly enough – what a fantastic experience. Thanks Dan:-)

6th June 2014: The only way is HOFNAR! Surfing weekend was awesome despite the wave machine malfunctioning the last couple of days. Kingsurf who gave us lessons were awesome, the camp site and festival that was taking place there was awesome and my fellow surfers and of course the legendary Dan just topped off the awesome-ness! Don't miss out, book yourself on the next trip!

2nd June 2014: This is my second surfing weekend and there are three things guaranteed to happen on a typical HOFNAR surfing weekend: 1. Drinking Cheddar Bombs and dancing like idiots 2. Eating a bacon and egg bap in the morning 3. Surfing Its basically a fun weekend away with your best mates that you just haven't met yet! Bank holiday weekends are best to make the most of the surfing weekend!

2nd March 2014: As someone who has been snowboarding for over ten years and always gone away with a group of friends and had an amazing time, snow holidays mean a lot to me. Then in the last few years the group I went with had been getting smaller and smaller as friends started to get married, get mortgages, have children or move away, until I came to the realisation that the only way I would get a trip to the snow was if I went as a solo traveller. So I started looking to see what companies specialised in solo snow holidays, and I searched the web and found Hofnar, I was not expecting to have a holiday like the epic trips I used to have with my friends just needed some slope time. But to be honest how wrong could I have been not only did I have an epic holiday, but going as a solo traveller I also came home after making some great new snow friends and some great times on piste and off piste. So a couple of yeas later and back from my 7th trip in three seasons I have nothing but good things say about Hofnar. As soon as you arrive you are welcomed with a drink, to meet the rest of the guests who could be a solo travellers, groups, or couples but always seem to to be a like minded group up for a good week. Then you can settle in to the brilliant Chalet Skade with good sized clean rooms, which is well positioned about 5 minute walk from the Super Morzine lift and about 10 minutes from the centre of Morzine where it is all happening with great bars, clubs and restaurants for some awesome après action. The chalet itself is very homely with an open fire to relax in front of after a hard day on the slopes, or if relaxing in the hot tub is more or thing you can head to the outside tub and look out over the valley and over Morzine while soaking away the days skiing. Food wise the hosts will do you proud with a continental breakfast every morning and even a good old English fry up on one day as well. Dinners are always very good with three courses, and very filling to get you fueled for the next day and come with a good supply of wine or beer. But what really makes the holiday are the amazing chalet hosts Cat and Lizzie, you could not think of a better team to look after you for the week, they make sure you have the most amazing week whether you are a first timer or a seasoned pro, going on your own or as part of a group. They look after you from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave, looking after you in the chalet or taking you out to find the best apres ski Morzine has to offer and just generally keeping you entertained all week. Chalet hosting legends!!! Can not wait for my next trip!!!

27th February 2014: Three words: Best. Week. Ever. Going to the mountains is pretty awesome in itself however the only way is HOFNAR for that cherry on your cake! I was completely unaware of HOFNAR until this trip and I doubt I'll ever look back - the infamous Chalet Skade is homely, perfectly located, you have the benefits of a jacuzzi, sauna and pool room and don't get me started on the live in hosts who will make your mouth water with the food they serve and ultimately make your week! Whether they're showing you the best of the mountains or apres activities, they will ensure your holiday is everything you wanted it to be and more (just don't hold it against them if your sides hurt from laughing so much or the headaches from too much apres fun). The fun from a HOFNAR group is infectious and I experienced people asking 'how do we join your group?...The Only Way is a HOFNAR Experience!

26th February 2014: Physical and emotional roller-coaster - and that was just the first evening... Awesome concept, the HOFNARs ski with you, guide you, cook for you, get wasted with you and somehow manage to keep it together for the whole week! Chalet & Ski hosts with a big difference. With a group or on your own, thoroughly recommend it...
