Join on your own or as a team on this fully organised whirlwind challenge to summit the 3 highest mountains in 3 countries & help sick children in the UK.
Take on the classic Three Peaks challenge, back to front. This fantastic challenge in aid of WellChild aims to take us up the same three mountains but in reverse order starting in Wales and finishing in Scotland.
By doing this you’ll build up to the tallest mountain in the UK – Ben Nevis! We’ll then stay overnight in a hotel in Fort William for a celebratory meal, drinks and socialise with new found friends, swapping stories of a fantastic weekend.
"I thoroughly enjoyed the Three Peaks challenge. The organisation was amazing. I have laughed a lot, eaten a lot and climbed three mountains. WellChild do a great job. I have made a lot of new friends. It was ace!"
Get picked up by the coach at various pick up points. Reaching Snowdon at around 10am; it's a relatively simple walk but has steep sections which tests your legs. After two hours you summit the mountain and enjoy spectacular views across the Welsh countryside.
Next is Scafell Pike, arriving at 9pm for a night-time summit. With a mixture of paths, boulder fields and scree, it's the smallest mountain of the three but the hardest terrain. However seeing the sunrise as you descend from the mountain is truly magical and worth all your hard work.
We arrive at Ben Nevis around 1pm and begin long steady climb which remains roughly at the same gradient throughout. The views can be spectacular and as we reach the summit there’s the opportunity for a team photo and snack.
Then it's off to our accommodation for the night; everyone meets in the bar to celebrate, share stories, show off blisters and enjoy the three course celebratory meal!
After a long nights sleep we meet for a full English Breakfast before presenting each individual their challenge certificate. After a team photo it’s back to our coach to travel home.
