The National 3 Peaks challenge – Climb the highest mountains in the UK from each of the three countries. England – Scafell Pike. Scotland – Ben Nevis. Wales – Snowdon. The challenge is to try and climb all of the mountains in under 24 hours. However, enjoying and completing the challenge is the important thing, as the challenge involves lots of driving and traffic can slow your time.

It can be accomplished in a day in under 24 hours or over 3 days – climbing one mountain per day. The national 3 peaks challenge is a classic challenge event that works well going from North to South or from South to North.  This adventure event can be done with a group of friends, a business team building event or by a charity looking to raise money.


Snowdon – 1085m

Snowdon (Welsh –  Yr Wyddfa) is the highest mountain in Wales, at 1,085 metres (3,560 ft) and the highest point in the British Isles outside of Scotland. Snowdon offers some of the best views in Britain and has lots of options for different routes to the summit – there are even exciting scrambles. Snowdon is the easiest mountain of the national 3 peaks challenge.

Scafell Pike – 978 m

Scafell Pike is the highest mountain in England at 978 metres (3,209 ft) above sea level. It is located in the Lake district national park and there are many ways of getting to the summit from all directions, giving lots of options on the national 3 peaks challenge. Scafell Pike is always the middle mountain on the national 3 peaks challenge regardless of starting from the south or the north.

Ben Nevis – 1344 m

Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the UK and of the entire British Isles. It’s the hardest mountain of the national 3 peaks challenge standing at 1,344 metres (4,409 ft) above sea level.  It is located in the Scottish Highlands and it’s very close to the town of Fort William


What an epic day. Dave gave us an amazing day on Wintours leap. We covered more than I could have hoped. Dave understood exactly what our objectives of the day were, excellent value for money. Dave was the most professional, and clearly knew his stuff.

Mr W Portal

Dave and his team hosted Noah’s Ark Charity Dangle event Sunday 16th October 2016 from Newport Transporter Bridge and we couldn’t have picked a better team of instructors to help us..

Noahs Ark Charity

All of the guides were extremely supportive and had the groups best interest at the forefront of everything we did, they were also very knowledgeable about the mountains and what lay ahead of us. This is the first time we have used Dave but definitely not the last!

Dave and Robyn guided a group of us to four 4000+m peaks in the Atlas Mountains. They were always full of energy and continually kept the team motivated. You were never in doubt that they were fully prepared for all eventualities. On top of this, they were always teaching us important mountain skills, with demonstrations and giving everyone the chance to practice these skills in a safe and fun but relevant environment. I also thought they were excellent at tailoring the experience to different peoples wants and needs. Without a doubt my favourite adventure holiday of the year.

The best rock climbing instruction I’ve ever had. Extremely clear and engaging.
Mr P Thompson

I just wanted to add that the quality of instruction was actually more than excellent! I learned loads of things that were very empowering and challenging, while always feeling very safe and in a friendly atmosphere. I had a lot of fun and really enjoyed my day. Many thanks to Dave!

I will happily tell all my friends that it is one of the best things I have ever had the good fortune to do.

Just wanted to pass on my thanks for a fantastic abseiling service from you guys yesterday. The feedback from all was what a professional and warmhearted company you are and even the very fearful felt safe and cared for and thanked you for your patience and reassurance.
