About

What's involved in The Three Peaks Challenge: 

  • 3 peaks - the highest in England, Scotland & Wales
  • 24 hours - time to reach the summit of each peak
  • 3,351 meters of ascent
  • 23 miles of hiking
  • 7 adventurers

This challenge is iconic, and rightly so. It's tough and requires a good level of fitness - both physical and mental - so training beforehand is essential.

 The 3 Peaks Challenge - Itinerary 

Friday We will depart Bath around 7am and travel by minibus all the way north to Fort William and our hostel - home for the night.

We'll drop our bags at the hostel, freshen up and head out for a big feed. We'll have a briefing about the weekend, including all safety aspects. It'll be an early night ready for the excitement of the challenge ahead!

Saturday 

After a hearty breakfast and group briefing, the challenge will begin at 11am. Your first summit will be the highest of the entire trip - the mighty Ben Nevis, Scotland’s highest peak.

The ascent is long but steady, zig-zagging all the way to the highest peak in the United Kingdom. With fingers firmly crossed, you'll enjoy stunning views and a chance to take in the breathtaking surroundings before starting your descent.

You'll be welcomed back to the foot of the mountain with food and drinks and plenty of high-5's!

Peak #1: tick. Now we bundle into the bus for the journey south to the Lake District.

Your climb of Peak #2, Scafell, the highest in England begins at Wasdale Head. You'll head through tranquil countryside towards the summit, the whole round trip taking approximately 4 - 5 hours.

With the two hardest peaks under your belt, it's time to hop back into the bus and make our way over to our final peak – Mount Snowdon!

Sunday 

After catching some zzz’s in the van you will start your trek to the last summit nice and early from Pen-Y-Pass. You'll ascend Snowdon via the scenic Pyg Track, with fantastic views of the ridge of Crib Goch and Snowdon’s largest lake – Llyn Llydaw. Upon reaching the summit (again weather permitting) you will be rewarded with spectacular views across Snowdonia stretching as far as the eye can see.

The descent retraces your steps to return to our minibus by 11am.After your final descent, there will be time for drinks, food, a cooling swim and celebrations with a hearty lunch at Llanberis. Once you've settled into your post-adventure carb-coma, sit back, relax and enjoy a snooze as we head back to Bath! We'll arrive home late Sunday afternoon.
