Each season we support and guide hundreds of people and groups taking on the National 3 Peak Challenge. From individuals and groups of friends, to charity and corporate groups. Whether for charity fundraising or just for fun – it’s a fantastic challenge and adventure to remember.
Our mountain guides and drivers have completed the challenge many times over the years and know it inside out and the best ways to maximise the chances of successfully completing the 3 Peaks Challenge
All of our mountain guides are qualified Mountain Leaders or higher and are certified by the MTA (Mountain Training Association). They are confident and experienced on the mountains in any conditions. They also hold a valid first aid certificate for your peace of mind.
Transport is a critical part of the challenge, we transport you between all of the mountains and one of the main advantages we have over other companies is that we do not outsource this element to a third party, we have our own team that we work with.
For group / private bookings you can choose any date to suit you depending on availability. You’ll have your own private luxury mini bus, mountain guide and driver.
- Ben Nevis Scotland’s biggest mountain at 1344 meters
- Scafell Pike England’s biggest mountain at 978 meters
- Snowdon, the biggest mountain in Wales at 1085 meters.
To complete the 24 hour challenge you must start at the foot of Ben Nevis and finish at the foot of Snowdon having reached all three summits in under 24 hours.
Below is a suggested itinerary for a weekend challenge. We also run this challenge during the week.
