More Information

The 3 Day 3 Peaks Challenge is an attempt to climb the highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales over 3 days, one each day, whilst taking in the magni cent scenery these peaks have to offer. The three peaks are: Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England, and Snowdon in Wales, and we complete them in that order.

We travel to Fort William on the Thursday, starting with Ben Nevis on the Friday morning, climb Scafell Pike Saturday and nish Snowdon on Sunday in Wales! Even though this is a more relaxed timescale than the 3 Peaks Challenge, this is a tiring event and people participating should have the necessary tness. We aim to complete each of the mountains within 6-8 hours; however this will depend upon the speed of the group. The course is guided by experienced mountain leaders and there is a transport vehicle with separate driver with you throughout the challenge.
