About the Event


Private airport transfer included


Let's hike up Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK! 

Ben Nevis is located in the Scotland Highlands, surrounded by incredible views you cannot find elsewhere in the UK.

If you have to choose one of the three big mountains, this is the one you want to do, which is a lot more beautiful than Snowdon. June is by far one of the best times to hike this famous mountain.

Anyone used to hike steep hills and with a good pair of knees should be able to hike this mountain.

The biggest challenges are the big steps and the time it takes to hike it, which could be up to 5 hours! Going down is a lot faster, but it will be quite hard on your knees.

Why not stay the whole week and join us on our West Highland Way trip? 

Just click here to reserve your place.

Contact us for a £30 off discount if booking both trips.

Hiking poles are a must, and knee braces would also help to avoid any injuries.
