ITINERARY

It's time for a challenge!

The National Three Peaks challenge just has to be the best known mountain challenge in the UK. Climb Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon – the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales – all in under 24hrs. Taking in 23 miles of total walking distance and a total ascent of 3,064m, you'll see the best of the Scottish Highlands, the Lake District and Snowdonia National Park and make memories to last a lifetime.

There’ll be two members of staff on this trip: A driver and a guide. This will allow the driver to rest whilst you're climbing the peaks, so you’ll be as safe on the drive as you will be on the mountains.

The National Three Peaks Challenge

Day 1

You’ll be picked up at Glasgow or Warrington train station in the afternoon where you'll be driven to the start point of Fort William (feel free to meet your group there too if it works better for you) where you'll stay the night ina B&B and get to know you fellow hikers and guide. There'll be a Q&A session and briefing before getting a good night’s sleep for the challenge ahead.

Day 2

The challenge begins! We'll fuel up on a carby breakfast and head for the hills with our new adventure pals. We'll be guided up to the summit of Ben Nevis, the UK's highest point, passing streams, waterfalls, lakes and possibly walking through snow before summiting one of the most beautiful plateaus in Scotland, with unrivalled views (literally) for miles. That is, on a clear day... which doesn't often happen in Scotland but we can make a silent prayer to the weather gods!

Once you've descended from your first peak, high on life and ready for anap, you'll return to the minibus to be shuttled off to Scafell Pike in the Lake District. Use this time to stock up on sandwiches or pasta - good, dense food -followed by a good nap. Top tip: don't eat all your sandwiches 5 minutes before getting off the bus, that'll lead to some serious indigestion and no one needs that.

Arriving in the evening, we'll head up to summit Scafell Pike, England's highest mountain, via the Wasdale Head route, a steep but short trail that'll rocket us up to the top by around midnight. Let's hope there's a full moon! The tiredness will start to kick in at this point so we'll keep morale high as we descend with plenty of snacks and good chat. We'll likely fall straight asleep in the bus on the way to Wales, ready for our final peak of Snowdon.

Day 3

A crack of dawn summit will have us on top of Wales' highest mountain -Snowdon - and down in time for brekkie. You'll be a bit sleep deprived at this point so watch your footing and try to enjoy it as you're so nearly there. Once you reach that trig point on top of Snowdon and take your summit selfie, give yourself a whopper pat on the back - you did it! National Three Peaks Challenge- tick. Time to get down to a huge mug of coffee or a beer - your choice.

The whole National 3 Peaks Challenge, including the driving, should be completed within 24 hours. With about 10 hours driving, you've only got 14 left to complete all three mountains - no easy feat and a worthy challenge.

After your last summit, you'll be transferred to your nearest train station to make your way back home; weary-limbed, ready for a hot bath but with a huge glow of achievement!

Had a fantastic time. The group had mixed abilities and our guide handled the dynamic very well and balanced time across each individual. His leading really added to the experience.

Matthew, National 3 Peaks

We've done the 3 peaks challenge which was very well organised. The guide and drivers were fantastic, we were well looked after and everything ran smoothly, and I felt very safe on both the mountains and during the long transfers in between. Would recommend to anyone wanting to give it a go.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How fit do I need to be for the National Three Peaks Challenge?

You'll need a good level of fitness for the National Three Peaks Challenge. You should be willing and able to walk the distances set out in the itinerary. You don't need to be a super experienced hiker, but some training in the months leading up to the challenge will go a long way. Check out our National Three Peaks Challenge training guide for some advice. This will be the biggest hike ever attempted for many on the trip. We'll be there to support you every step of the way.

What will I need to bring on the National Three Peaks Challenge?

We'll send out a full kit list on the day but well-worn in hiking boots, a decent rucksack with a rain cover, good waterproofs, basic first aid kit, lots of layers, water and snacks (energy bars, fruit etc) are a good starting point.

Can dietary needs be accommodated?

The hotel has experience of providing breakfast for a wide range of dietary needs and preferences - just let us know your needs and we'll make sure they can accommodate. Bring snacks with you for the mountains and the drive in between. You should find plenty of options at service stations too.

Can we leave things on the bus while we're hiking?

Yes - you'll be able to leave your clothes etc on the minibus while you're hiking so all you'll need to carry on the peaks is a day sack with the things you'll need for that climb.

I'm travelling alone, is this a good option for me?

Absolutely! We created the National 3 Peaks Challenge trip so that like-minded people could group together without having to sort the long-winded logistics of who would do all the driving. This is a really great opportunity to meet other mountain lovers and who knows, after the 24 hours you might have just bonded for life!

What's the best peak, Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike or Snowdon?

You tell us! When you're done, we'd love to hear what you thought of each one. Each present their own personal challenge. and with challenge comes reward! Ben Nevis is probably the most technical and gnarly of all the three mountains, whereas Scafell Pike is trickier underfoot and has spectacular views of the rest of the Lake District (unless it's dark!). Snowdon is simply iconic and a lovely walk from start to finish.

Are the numbers of people doing the National Three Peaks challenge damaging the paths?

The paths certainly get more eroded than the UK's lesser known mountains. You might be interested in knowing about the organisations that help preserve the mountain paths you'll be using. Donating to local community-led initiatives such as Fix the Fells (Lake District), Mend our Mountains (National) and the Nevis Landscape Partnership (Glen Nevis) would be a brilliant way to thank those responsible for maintaining the paths, as well as ensuring they remain intact for future generations. All challenges are also delivered within the guidelines of the 3 peaks partnership and Institute for Fundraising Guidelines.

This trip operates as a small group of no more than ten people, which leaves less of an impact and also increases your chance of completing the challenge.

Can you guarantee a drop-off time after the event?

Unfortunately we can't guarantee what time you'll be dropped off as this all depends on traffic conditions etc. We will do our best to keep to suggested times but we recommend buying an open ticket just in case.

Is there a minimum age for this trip?

Yes, all our trips are for people of 18 years of age and older.

FOOD & ACCOMMODATION

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
