Extreme Three Peaks

from £1,050.00

An extreme version of the classic mountain challenge, the National Three Peaks. Climbing the highest mountains in Scotland (Ben Nevis, 1,345m), England (Scafell Pike, 978m) and Wales (Snowdon, 1,085m) and cycling between them. This fully guided & supported adventure challenge will see you ride over 450 miles and climb over 3000 meters in some of the most spectacular scenery in the country. And unlike the traditional Three Peaks Challenge, you will be able to experience it all.

Whether you have completed the Three Peaks Challenge before, or are just looking for a real challenge, this is a trip that you will remember for years to come!

The Extreme Three Peaks is also a great way to raise funds for your favourite charity, and with no minimum sponsorship every penny you raise goes to your charity! Get your friends & family involved or use the event as a corporate fundraiser with your company

All about the Extreme Three Peaks.

Your adventure beings at the foot of Ben Nevis, the highest point in Britain. From here you will set off on foot to climb the Ben with, weather permitting, some fine views up Glen Nevis and out over the Lochaber hills. After a successful summit, its back down to the glen and on to the bikes. You will ride in to Fort William where the team will stay for the night.

The next stage will see you cycle down through Scotland, crossing the border at the world famous Gretna Green and on to the Lake District.

The next stage of your challenge sees you out of the saddle and back in to your walking boots as you climb Scafell Pike, and hopefully being treated to the fine views of Wasdale and Great Gable.

After a restful night in Keswick, its time to get back in the saddle and on the way to Wales for the final stage of your event.

Once you have reached the summit of Snowdon, and maybe had a quick coffee in the cafe, its back down to the bikes for the short ride to your nights accommodation and time to celebrate your success on one of the toughest challenges in the UK.

After a good nights rest, Wildlands will be on hand for the transfer to Chester where there is good connecting services to the rest of the country.
