Ben Nevis Trek

This challenge takes you into the heart of the breath-taking Western Highlands in order to conquer the highest peak in Britain set at 1,345m above sea level.

The trail to the summit is technically easy, but trekking Ben Nevis is a challenge – stamina and determination are a must! The stunning views of the highlands will be with us all the way and provide a fantastic backdrop to one of the most sought-after charity challenges in the UK!
