Three Peaks Challenge

The Challenge

Join Weldmar on the Three Peaks Challenge in 2017. The National Three Peaks Challenge is a tough endurance event in which participants attempt to summit the highest peak of three countries in the UK: Scotland (Ben Nevis), England (Scafell Pike) and Wales (Snowdon), usually within 24 hours. The total distance covered is approximately 26 miles, with an ascent of approximately 3,000m.
Did you know? The National Three Peaks Challenge involves climbs of the highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales, but the 56 highest peaks in Britain are all found in Scotland.


Friday 25th August
Make your own arrangements to travel to Glasgow. Upon arrival in Glasgow you will meet your guides and transfer to your overnight accommodation in Fort William. Once you are settled in there will be a briefing on the challenge over dinner, before an early night to prepare yourselves for the challenge ahead.

Saturday 26th August
After an early wake-up call we set off to conquer our first peak, Ben Nevis! This should take around 5 hours, depending on local conditions such as the weather etc. After our descent we transfer to the Lake District where our second peak, Scafell Pike awaits. It is expected to take approximately 4 hours in total to ascend and descend England's highest mountain after which it's time to drive through the night into Wales.

Sunday 27th August
We'll arrive at the base of Snowdon in the early hours of the morning for your final ascent. This should take around 4 hours, with the aim being to finish the descent less than 24 hours after you started off at Ben Nevis yesterday. Once your challenge is complete and you've enjoyed a well-earned snack you'll be transported to Chester Railway Station, where the trip ends.

N.B. This itinerary may change due to weather and the ability of the group and so on. We will do our best to keep to the set itinerary however we cannot be held responsible for changes that might occur outside of our control. In all such circumstances your guide and tour leader will have the final say in the interest of the health and safety of the group.
