About & Details

Standing on top of Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in Britain, gives you a fantastic sense of achievement. Climbing this magnificent mountain is an unmissable experience.  Weather conditions permit us to run this course anytime from May to October. Although at 978m above sea level, it is possible that during the colder months, snow and ice will appear on the trail. This hike does have the possibility to be quite challenging due to the steep mountain trail and the unpredictable weather, although it will equally make an unforgettable memory. 

This adventure is also available as a package with accommodation.  Please see optional extras for additional charges.
