Ben Nevis At Night Trek

The Ben Nevis at Night Trek will see you conquer the tallest mountain in the UK, but with a difference!

Trek to the highest point in the UK – guided by torches and the stunning night sky! You’ll be setting off at night-time and the trek will follow the route as it zig-zags its way to the summit in time to witness a breath-taking sunrise (weather permitting) across the Scottish Highlands on your descent. The trek will be challenging; however, you’ll be accompanied by experienced mountain leaders supporting you every step of the way and you will return with memories to last a lifetime.

St Catherine’s Hospice has teamed up with Global Adventure Challenges who will be hosting this event on our behalf.

Itinerary with Global Adventure Challenges 

We meet in Fort William for a safety briefing. Around 10pm / 11pm we then start our trek! The trek to the summit zigzags its way through tough terrain and the landscape becomes ever more remote as we trek higher and higher, leaving the lowlands behind us.

Our ascent should take approximately 4-5 hours, and upon reaching the summit, we will be able to (hopefully!) enjoy a beautiful sunrise and take in the stunning views surrounding us.

We begin our descent which should take approximately 3-4 hours and upon reaching the finish we are rewarded with a breakfast bap. We are then free to go on our onward journeys. (Please note, this is a complex itinerary and is subject to change)

What’s included
• Breakfast in Fort William
• Complimentary snacks
• Full support from our experienced crew
• Vehicle for back up and support

What’s not included
• Travel to and from Glasgow or Edinburgh
