About & Details

There are 4 fells (according to Wainwright!) which exceed the 3000ft mark. These can be climbed in a 3 day trip, meaning you have then climbed the 4 highest peaks in England. The mountains in question, in order of height, are: Scafell Pike, 3210ft Scafell, 3164ft Helvellyn, 3118ft Skiddaw, 3054ft. The English peaks offer some of the finest mountain scenery in the UK and this is a great way to enjoy them

  • Qualified mountain leaders
  • Transport to and from the accommodation on each walking day
  • Evening briefing, route planning and equipment check to ensure you have everything you need and you have an input into the routes taken

Departures

The course is lead by a qualified leader and the precise itinerary will be decided locally with the group depending upon weather, conditions and group fitness. We usually meet on a Thursday evening and then complete the peaks from Friday to Sunday, however, if you would like to do this at any other time then please contact us.

Each day will consist of between 6-8hrs on the hills.

The Route

Charity Information

How to take part for Charity
To do this challenge for a charity there is a non-refundable registration fee, payable to Maximum Adventure at the time of booking.  You can then choose between the two different options below.

Self-Funding
Pay a registration fee at the time of booking then the balance due 10 weeks before departure.  With the self-funding option, you personally cover the full cost of the challenge.  This option means that there is no minimum sponsorship target due, but we encourage you to raise as much money as you can for the charity.

Minimum Sponsorship Pledge
Pay a registration fee at the time of booking and confirm with your charity their minimum fundraising requirements for the balance.  This will typically be double the cost of the adventure, less the registration fee.  With the minimum sponsorship pledge option, you must submit 80% of your fundraising target to the charity 10 weeks before the departure date.

For more details of how fundraising works please read our step by step guide here or contact us for help.

Maximum Adventure work with lots of charities to offer our events as fundraising opportunities.  You can find our Charity Events from the ‘Menu’ in the corner of your screen or from our homepage.  If your chosen charity is not listed, please contact us and we will be happy to approach them on your behalf.
