Three Peaks Trek

Climb the highest mountains in the UK – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon!

Head to Fort William before trekking to the summit of your first and highest peak – Ben Nevis in Scotland. Set off for the Lake District to conquer Scafell Pike by night. Your final ascent takes place in Snowdonia National Park, where you will climb the mighty Snowdon in Wales!

The target trekking time is 15 hours or less, the equivalent available trekking time for the traditional 24 hour Three Peaks Challenge. There is a maximum available trekking time of 18 hours. You’ll climb around 9,500 feet and walk approximately 22 miles – it’s no wonder the National Three Peaks Challenge is the most highly regarded trekking challenge in the UK!

A tough challenge awaits and your boundaries will be pushed, but with expert support and exceptional care and encouragement from Global Adventure Challenges, you can conquer this classic charity challenge. Join our team and tick this classic UK challenge off your list!

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

A note from Global Adventure Challenges about this event: 

In order to fulfil the itinerary and complete all 3 mountains within the scope and limitations of the challenge itinerary including contracted staff working hours, there are strict cut off times in place. The maximum trekking times are Ben Nevis – 7 hours, Scafell Pike – 5.5 hours, Snowdon – 5.5 hours. Whilst we offer support and encouragement to all trekkers wanting to complete the challenge, with regret, anyone failing to meet the interim cut off times in place will therefore exceed the maximum trekking time available and will be required to return with a guide to the waiting support team.
