National 3 Peaks Challenge
Highpoint can supply Professional Mountain Guides for the ledgendary National 3 Peaks Challenge, 24hrs to summit all 3 of the highest peaks in the UK, Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mt Snowden.
The National 3 Peaks Challenge is a huge part of Highpoints year, and we have helped hundreds of clients tackle this awesome challenge during the last 6 years, below is a brief breakdown of how we can help your group:
Once booked, we will supply your organizers with our 3 Peaks info pack, this will give you invaluable info on:
- Estimated walking times for each mountain,
- Estimated driving times between each mountain.
- The best driving directions between each mountain.
- Start point postcodes.
- Suggested kit lists.
- Training and nutrition programmes.
- Suggested accomodation choices.
This will hopefully take the stress out of arranging your challenge, we are also on hand for any questions or advice you may need at any time.
To keep costs down, we call on our extensive list of mountain guides up and down the country, and can supply guides local to each mountain, this ensures each guide is fresh for the start of each mountain.
We supply 3 different packages which consist of the following….(Remember, if you have more than 8 people in your group, you will require 2 or more guides.)
Package 1. The supply of a qualified, experienced guide for “Scafell Pike” only (usually a night ascent) 1:8 £240 (£30 per person based on 1:8)
This package is designed for groups who are confident in their own ability to navigate Mt Snowden and Ben Nevis, but feel they would like professional help for the night time ascent of Scafell Pike, BE AWARE, Scafell can be very tricky to navigate at night, so a guide is a very good idea to keep your group safe.
Package 2. The supply of a qualified, experienced guide for Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowden. 1:8 £720 (£30 per person per mountain)
This package is designed to keep your costs down, if you are arranging your own transport and only need professional guides for the actual mountains, this is the best option.
Package 3. The supply of guides as well as transport and driver (Food is optional extra) £350 Per Person, (Min numbers required)
This package is designed to take all the pressure off you, we arrange the transport, driver and guides and make pickups between Manchester and Scotland and make drop offs between Snowden and Cumbria, we usually advise to fly to Glasgow airport where we will meet you, then fly back from Manchester. Please contact the office to arrange.
3 Peaks Challenge training day: From £30 per person
To help with your 3 peaks challenge, we now run training days in the Lake District, this will give you an idea of what to expect, what you need to carry, how to pace yourself, how to deal with difficult terrain whilst helping with your training and building up your endurance for your challenge, we discuss everything you will need to know about the 3 peaks including, timing, routes, kit requirements, nutrition, and fitness training, giving you the best chance of completing the challenge on time and without injury.
These training days are not only for the 3 peaks, but great training for any demanding hill walk you may be planning.
We now also offer Alternative Lake District based challenges which are just as demanding (some a lot more so!) but take out the cost and hassle of all the travelling associated with the National 3 Peaks challenge! Why not pit your wits against such challenges as the Lake District 3000 footers challenge or the famous Lake District 10 Peaks challenge, and even the Lake District 24 Peaks challenge if you are up for an Epic!!
