Adventure Highlights

You’ve heard everyone mention it, you know a few people who’ve done it, but what is it? The famous National Three Peaks Challenge is a back-to-back arduous trek to summit the highest peaks in Scotland, England, and Wales. The hike covers 26 miles (the distance of a marathon) and above 3,000m vertical ascent. It will include covering over 400miles on the motorway, where you’ll travel through the night. It’s usually aimed to be completed within 24 hours, however, traffic on motorways, weather and physical ability of the group can all make this a challenging time to complete. For many, this is a lifelong bucket-list challenge. All logistics are taken care of, from pick-up and drop-off locations, a team of drivers, and qualified expert mountain leaders to show you the routes and ensure you are more likely to complete within the time in a safe way. This is a test that will give you that 'high-five' warm fuzzy feeling at the end, not to mention bragging rights! This event mainly runs during summer daylight hours but can be done all year round for the more serious hikers. For winter attempts you may need crampons and ice axes, which can be rented if you don’t have your own. We are flexible with dates and groups sizes, so can work with you to find the most suitable date. Prices start from £380 depending on the group size, with group discounts available.

Adventure Details

Day 1

We’ll agree to a meeting place that suits you, but usually, we meet at Ft William Train Station at 0800. We’ll transfer you to the first mountain, where the ultimate challenge begins! We’ll have a briefing, share how the day will unfold and do a kit check to ensure everyone is ready to go. At the base of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Scotland, we’ll start by taking the tourist path on the way up enabling stunning views as long as the visibility is good! We'll reach the summit in around 3.5 hours, after which we'll take some celebratory photos and head back down to the transport. We'll drive down to Wasdale Head in the Lake District, where you can sleep in the transport to gain maximum rest for Scafell Pike. We will also stop in Keswick for dinner just before setting off. Leaving Wasdale Head, we'll resume our trekking up the beautiful Scafell Pike (978m). Usually, around this time the sun draws in and gives a stunning sunset over the Lake District. After making our way down it's the time to head to our last summit - Mount Snowdon.

Day 2

You’ll have the chance to sleep overnight in the transport so be sure to bring a lightweight sleeping bag or blanket for the journey. It's an early start to the day as we begin our hike from Pen-Y-Pass Youth Hostel. We'll hitch the PYG track to the top of Snowdon (1,085m). Once we've reached the top, our efforts will be rewarded with incredible views of the Snowdonia mountain range. After celebratory photos, we'll head back down to Llanberis for a hearty breakfast! After breakfast, we'll take you to Chester Train Station (or please request another drop-off point) and you can head home for a well-deserved rest and a newfound sense of pride!
