About & Details

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.

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 5½ hours, Scafell Pike in 4½ 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 challenge as quickly as possible.

Environmental Responsibility

Over the years concerns have been raised about the impact the 3 Peaks Challenge has on the environment and the local residents surrounding these peaks.  The main concerns raised is an increase in traffic and noise in rural areas at unsociable hours, litter, erosion of the peaks through people taking short cuts and in particular the lack of water and toilet facilities at Wasdale Head.

At Maximum Adventure our ethos is to always respect the areas we work in.  The company was set up by people who enjoy the mountains and respect the impact people climbing them have on the environment and local residents.  When running our 3 Peak Challenges we adhere to the fundraising guidelines which were produced by the Institute of Fundraisers in line with the various authorities for the 3 Peaks. We mainly run small groups of between 10-12 people with experienced drivers and mountain leaders with them ensuring best behaviour on the mountain and not impacting on rescue services.  In fact, on several occasions, our mountain leaders have acted as ‘rescuers’ by leading lost groups we found on the hill off the mountain!  We always stick to the official paths on the mountains so not to cause any environmental damage to the mountains, and we contribute to the maintenance of these paths.  We make donations to the Highland council for the upkeep of the paths throughout the year.  In the cases where we operate larger groups we seek prior approval from the various mountain authorities.  We have worked closely with these authorities over the years and have a very good working relationship with them.  We also manage groups access to the peaks to reduce the amount of people coming into and out of an area at any one time.

We aim to climb Scafell Pike before the midnight cut off time, thereby reducing the impact our arrival and departure has on local residents.  We always have our own water supplies so we do not use local supplies and do all that we can to ensure our clients have access to appropriate toilet facilities outside of the area. Our drivers remain with the minibuses and ensure there is no excessive noise or illegal parking.  We take the safety of our participants very seriously, and stick to driving regulations with separate non-walking drivers, making sure sufficient breaks are taken.  We believe we are one of the most responsible operators on the hill and continually endeavour to improve our services whilst protecting the beautiful environment we operate in and ask that all of our clients respect our working code when travelling with us.

After you book

After placing your booking with us, you will in the first instance receive an automated email from our system confirming receipt of your reservation. If you don’t receive it, it is worth checking your spam/clutter folder.

In the process of placing your booking, you will generally set up an access password to our online gateway where you can review the details of the booking.

Your personal event planner will then be in touch with you to start to confirm the details. This contact will usually be taken up in the working day after receipt of your booking, but may, in busy times, take a little longer. The event planner will then liaise with you regarding the details of the course. If you have any specific requirements, please do mention it at this stage.

We completed the three Peaks Challenge with Maximum Adventure and they were helpful and well organised. Our guide was great and made it a really fantastic experience.

An experience of a life time with Maximum Adventures. Perfectly organised from start to finish meant we had no worries while completing the Three Peaks. All the guides were friendly and knowledgeable and Mountain Mike did the most fabulous job looking after us all. Would totally reccommend.
