Getting There


It's time for a challenge!

The National Three Peaks is the best known UK mountain challenge. Climb Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon –the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales – all in 3 days.


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 this works better for you) where you'll stay the night in a B&B and get to know your fellow adventurers and guide. There'll be a Q&A session and briefing before getting a good night's sleep for the day ahead.


The next morning, the challenge begins. After a good carb-fuelled breakfast you’ll be guided up to the summit of Ben Nevis before returning to the minibus and being whisked off to Lake District. Arriving in the evening, you’ll have time to rest upin your hotel and have a well-earned beer!


It's more of the same, a good hearty hiker's breakfast and getting psyched to climb! But this time with different views. Soak up the panorama of the classic Lake District peaks and enjoy a summit selfie before hopping on the bus to north Wales.


It's the final push as you head up the final summit of Snowdon and feel the satisfaction of having climbed the three highest peaks in the UK! Descend in your own time, soaking up the spectacular views over the Snowdonia National Park and then it's back home to brag about your ascents and hopefully having raised some money if you're walking for charity.


What Adventurers are Saying

Our guides were excellent and knew the mountains like the back of their hand, whilst being a real support to a couple of group members who had picked up injuries. I couldn’t recommend this group highly enough when undertaking similar challenges; they were very professional, knowledgable and friendly - they even felt like part of our group by the end of it!

These guides are first class in what they do and how they provide support to the team on the trek. Their approach is shaped to your experience and it is clear this gives confidence to individual and the team.

The guides' professionalism, attitude and encouragement was outstanding. Thank you for helping me to achieve the three peaks, as a Parkinson sufferer, I found it tough but with your leadership and ability to motivate I achieved a goal I had always wanted to reach.

How fit should I be for the challenge?

A decent basic level of fitness is needed for this challenge and we strongly recommend you do 2-3 months training if you're not overly familiar with hill climbing. You don't need to be a super experienced hiker, for many participants this will be the biggest hike they've ever attempted and after all it is supposed to be a challenge! You can prepare fairly easily by doing some weekend training walks and building up the miles in the legs. Some leg strength and resistance training in the gym is also great. We'll be there to support you every step of the way.

What's the minimum number of people needed for a private booking?

10 people

Is there a discount for large groups?

Strangely enough our costs actually go up a bit with large groups given the additional complexity (logistics, need for co-ordinators, etc.) so we don't typically offer discounts for big groups. We do however offer a competitive price and focus on giving you and your group the best experience possible. We don't try to scrimp and save by cutting corners. We do more than 100 organised events like this each year so know how to ensure you get the most out of it if you book with us.

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

We'll send out a full kit list 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 I leave a bag on the bus while I walk?

Yes, you'll be able to leave abag on the bus so you'll only carry what you need for each mountain in a daysack.

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, where as Scafell Pike is trickier underfoot and has spectacular views over the rest of the Lake District. 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.

Is there a minimum age for this trip?

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


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.
