A team ready for their Scafell Pike ascent

Looking for a challenge? The increasingly popular National 3 Peaks Challenge awaits you! Push yourself to the limit and ascend the UK’s three highest mountains: Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, and Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon).

The traditional way of completing the challenge is to summit all three peaks in just 24 hours, but we’re also seeing an increase in groups who want to complete it over a more leisurely three days. This allows more time to enjoy the breathtaking scenery and atmosphere.

At Lakeland Ascents, we can provide guides for both options, as well as bespoke guiding for your own itinerary.

If you’re looking for something different, or even harder, then check out the Lake District 10 Peak Challenge and 24 Peak Challenge.

We offer two standard packages for the provision of a 3 Peaks Challenge guide, but we can also put together a bespoke package for your group. Just get in touch with your requirements.

Guiding of all 3 Peaks: If you’d like to leave all the navigation to the professionals, our guides can lead you up all three peaks. They will meet you at the starting point for each ascent and guide your group safely to the summit and back, allowing you to focus on the challenge ahead.

The price is just £175 per person and your group can be as big or small as you like. We have a minimum payment requirement of the value of 6 people.

We can arrange a date to suit your diary. We do not operate ‘open’ events for solo challengers to join an existing group.

Please note that Lakeland Ascents does not provide transport or accommodation. You will need to arrange these separately.

Guiding of just Scafell Pike: For the Scafell Pike leg of the challenge, we highly recommend hiring a guide. Scafell Pike is usually climbed at night during the 24-hour challenge, and it can be difficult to navigate in the dark or when the weather is bad. Our experienced guides know Scafell Pike like the back of their hands and can ensure your group’s safety.

For a guide to look after you and your group and keep you safe on Scafell Pike in the dark, we charge £400. This is for a maximum group size of 8 people. Extra people can be added at £50pp.

If you prefer to take the challenge at a more relaxed pace and spread it over three days, our charges are the same.
