Have you ever fancied the national 24 hour three peak challenge? We haven’t!
Climbing the UK’s highest peaks under the cover of darkness and through blurry eyes whilst racking up a massive carbon footprint just for the 24 hour challenge? We’ve been thinking, surely there’s a better way… well we’ve got it – the Three Peak Week!
Climb the highest mountains whilst taking the time to explore the local areas of Scotland, the Lake District and Snowdonia. The UK earns its spot as being one of the most spectacularly beautiful countries so let’s give it the time it deserves and soak it in.
The best bit – we take you away from the “tourist” paths and we tailor it to your desires. Fancy waiting for the sun to set from Scafell Pike – let’s do it! Fancy seeing the sunrise from Snowdon – why the hell not! Want to throw in some scrambling to the climb – we’ve got your back, let’s go for it! This is YOUR trip
Starting in Scotland and with our first ascent up the mighty Ben Nevis, we climb to the roof of the UK and we take our time, soaking in the views of that fabulous mountain.
We then travel south, staying the night within the awe-inspiring region of Glencoe with the option of climbing another mountain peak or perhaps just a local hike in one of the regions hidden valleys where we can dip our feet into the waterfalls and spot some eagles.
Moving south again, we climb Scafell Pike and then take a day to rest with options of a leisurely walk around some of the most spectacular lakes Cumbria has to offer or some shopping in one of the Lake District’s many beautiful towns.
Finally, we continue our journey south to spend the afternoon exploring the waterfalls and / or quarries of Snowdonia the day before we climb our final summit – Snowdon.
The best part – the routes are planned according to how busy the mountain is likely to be – we will take our own routes away from the crowds and rather than speed through, we will travel at a pace which suits the entire group.
The group will be limited to 8 so be prepared to get to know the group and make some great friendships along the way
