The National Three Peaks (Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike & Snowdon) are the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales.  Our challenge is to summit these three peaks, one each day.

The National Three Peaks Challenge is to climb the three highest peaks in the UK over 3 consecutive days, whilst taking in the magnificent scenery these peaks have to offer.  This is the ideal event for those wanting to challenge themselves and complete the three peaks without the pressure of the 24hr clock. These peaks are Ben Nevis (Scotland), Scafell Pike (England) and Snowdon (Wales), and we complete them in that order.

We travel to Fort William on the Thursday, starting with Ben Nevis on the Friday morning, climb Scafell Pike on Saturday and finish Snowdon on Sunday!  Even though this is a more relaxed timescale than the 24hr Challenge, this is a tiring event and we advise participants regularly exercise in preparation for the event.

We aim to complete each of the mountains within 6-8 hours; however this will depend upon the speed of the group.  You will be guided and looked after by mountain leaders throughout the challenge.

Distance: 26 miles/42 km

Walk time: 6-8 hours per mountain

Total ascent: 3,000 m/9,843 ft


This event will appeal to everyone from seasoned adventurers to Sunday hikers.

The group will be fully guided, getting you safely from start to finish. The walk is aimed at moderate to high fitness levels however, you will need to be reasonably fit to ensure your own enjoyment and that of the group as the event involves 3 days walking of between 6-8 hours.

You will be fully guided by a qualified mountain leader.
