More Information

The Three Peaks Challenge is an attempt to climb the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales in 'one go'. These peaks are Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England, and Snowdon in Wales. Other bespoke options are available, including doing the challenge from south to north, to discuss alternatives or any ideas you may have feel free to call our friendly team.

We travel to Fort William on the Friday, starting with Ben Nevis on the Saturday morning, climb Scafell Pike that night and finish Snowdon on Sunday in Wales. This is a tough event and people participating should have the necessary fitness and be prepared to do without sleep! If your aim is to complete the event in 24 hours then we will need to complete Ben Nevis in 5.5 hours, Scafell Pike in 4.5 hours and Snowdon in 4 hours. The standard for measuring your official total time on the event is mountain time plus a fixed 10 hour drive time. The challenge is supported by qualified mountain leaders and a driver will be with you all of the way. We'll do everything we can to get you through the challegne as quickly as possible.

We have many years experience in delivering this challenge. Over the years thousands of people have completed the event with us - we'd be delighted to help you with yours! If you want to do this challenge but think that you might benefit from sleep in between each peak, then we do offer this event over more relaxed timescales.
