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 complete them in that order on our open events. Other bespoke options are available.
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 also be prepared to do without sleep! We aim to complete the event in 24 hours – to do this we need to complete Ben Nevis in 5 hours, Scafell Pike in 4 hours and Snowdon in 4 hours, however this will depend upon the speed of the group. The standard for measuring your official total time on the event is mountain time plus a fixed 10 hr drive time.
The course is guided by qualified mountain leaders and our driver will be with you all of the way! We have very many years experience delivering this challenge and over the years thousands of people have completed their event with us. We would be delighted if we can help you with yours. If you want to do this challenge but benefit from sleep in between we offer this event over more relaxed time scales. For further details see our 3 Day 3 Peaks and 5 Day 3 Peaks Trips.
