3 PEAKS IN 3 WEEKS - Scafell Pike, Lake District - travel included - hotel stay
Time & Location
About the Event
Private bus travel included from Kings Cross - London
The UK 3 Peaks challenge is usually accomplished in 24 hours with no sleep and includes the highest mountains of Scotland (Ben Nevis 1345 metres), Wales(Snowdon, 1085 metres) and England (Scafell Pike, 978 metres).
We, however, will take our time and space-out each trip allowing extra time in the region for another easier hike and free time to explore.
A beautiful circular hike, using different trails up and down the mountain to make the most of the incredible views.
We will walk slow and allow you to catch your breath as much as you need. We will stick together to the end :-)
Other than that, the rest of the trip will be quite relaxing.
