Advance Bookings

Advanced bookings are now being taken for the National 3 Peaks Challenge. However, although most groups prefer to undertake this event during the spring and summer months we also offer a Winter 3 Peaks from November to March when you can expect snow conditions on any of the peaks and most especially on the summit of Ben Nevis.For groups who have perhaps completed this event in the summer, a winter challenge presents a more difficult proposition requiring previous mountain walking experience and a higher fitness level. However, to complete the 3 Peaks in winter is a rewarding experience and in good weather the panoramic views are truly spectacular. The 3 Peaks is by far the most popular challenge event in the UK and therefore we recommend that you book early especially if you wish to do it on specific dates.



We attain exceptionally high success rates; however, we DO NOT run 'open' events due to invariable fitness issues with a mixed group. We work only with privately formed teams and our minimum group size is 8 persons. Unfortunately, we cannot organise events for less than our minimum group size. For individuals wishing to do the 3 Peaks we recommend that the best way to maximise your chance of success is to come to us with your own pre-formed group - ideally recruiting team members of a similar fitness level.


3 Peaks Challenge - Bookings and availability

We have already received a high volume of enquiries for next season and anticipate that popular summer dates especially in June and July will be over-subscribed. In the circumstances advance booking is essential and we recommend that you contact us early if you want specific dates.
