3 Peaks Challenge

National 3 Peaks Challenge

One of the most popular adventure challenge events in the UK, the National Three Peaks Challenge involves walking to the summit of the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales; Ben nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon, all within 24 hours.


Although the original 3 Peaks Challenge is to reach the three summits within 24 hours, some groups prefer to take a longer, more relaxed approach over a long weekend so we also offer the 3 Peaks, 3 Countries, 3 Days Event.


Typically our preferred route starts in Glen Nevis, ascending Ben nevis, then Scafell Pike from Seatoller, then finally Snowdon, with a celebratory breakfast in Pete's Eats. Occasionally it's logistically easier to take on the challenge the other way around, starting in Wales and celebrating in Scotland.


We run this popular challenge with small groups, each accompanied and supervised by a professional mountain leader, who guides the group as required ensuring that the route is not lost, providing navigation and safety input for those more experienced groups.


We will happily arrange local accommodation as required, or we can merely provide professional guides to manage your safety during the challenge.


Please note that any transport, whether arranged by us or by you must use drivers that do not take part in the challenge.
