Adventure Highlights

It’s an experience like no other, climbing a mountain in the dark with a supportive group and an experienced leader to wait on the summit for the first hints of light, and then to watch the sun come up and reveal the landscape. We’re going to be doing just that, and on the UK’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis (1345m). On the west coast of Scotland, right in the heart of the Highlands, the views from Ben Nevis are spectacular, from the hundreds of other summits visible from the top, right over to the Atlantic and the western isles. After greeting the sun (we recommend bringing a hot drink!) we’ll head back down, where you can gaze out at all the scenery hidden at night. Arriving back in Glen Nevis you can celebrate not only climbing Ben Nevis but doing it in a way few other people do.

This adventure is perfect for individuals and small groups, and can be tailored for:

  • Corporates
  • Families
  • Hen / Stag parties
