Attempt to ascend the highest summit in Scotland (Ben Nevis), England (Scafell Pike) and Wales (Snowdon) within 24 hours.
Join us for the National Three Peaks Challenge. We sort out all the logistics – all you have to do is follow our guides up and down the mountains, relax in the vehicle on the journeys between the three ascents – and get as fit as you can before the attempt!
There are various versions of the challenge. The one we attempt is to ascend and descend all three mountains, finishing the challenge upon returning to the car after climbing the last peak. This is the usual and perfectly valid form of the National Challenge.
The meeting point for the start of the event is the station at Fort William, and the drop off point at the end is Bangor station. A transfer from/to Ambleside at the start and end of the course can usually be arranged for an extra fee.
Please do not book any non-refundable travel arrangements or accommodation until you know that the Course is guaranteed to run.
