Trek the national three peaks for aortic dissection

Take on the ultimate UK trekking adventure and conquer the highest peaks of Scotland, England, and Wales in the National Three Peaks Challenge. Test your limits and discover your true potential as you scale Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, and Snowdon!

Your journey begins in Fort William, where you’ll ascend the towering Ben Nevis, the highest peak in the UK. Next, you’ll head to the Lake District and tackle Scafell Pike under the cover of night. Finally, we’ll venture to Snowdonia National Park to climb the formidable Snowdon.

Aiming to complete the trek in 15 hours or less, you’ll cover approximately 22 miles and climb around 9,500 feet. The National Three Peaks Challenge is undoubtedly the most esteemed trekking challenge in the UK, pushing you to your boundaries.

With your leader’s professional support, expert guidance, and unwavering encouragement, you can rise to this iconic challenge. They will drive the team through the night, lead each climber up the mountains, and provide hugs and high-fives when needed. Join this guided tour and experience this classic UK challenge for yourself!

Please note that the itinerary for this challenge is complex and subject to change. To complete all three peaks within the challenge’s scope, limitations, and staff working hours, strict cut-off times are in place.


Day 1
Day 2
Day 3
Meet In Glasgow - You’ll meet at Glasgow Central Station/ Glasgow International Airport for your pick up, then head north on your transfer to Fort William which is located in the stunning highlands of Scotland. You'll have an evening meal together as a group and a briefing about the exciting challenge ahead.
Ben Nevis & Scafell Pike - After a hearty breakfast the challenge begins, first up the mighty Ben Nevis standing tall at 1,345m. You begin your trek taking the tourist path, which uses a zig zag technique to enable a steady climb up the mountain! As you trek to the summit we will stop for short breaks enabling you to take in the picturesque views of the breath-taking Scottish highlands. Once you reach the summit and take your celebration photos you'll begin the descent. After you descend Ben Nevis you jump straight into the awaiting vehicles and head South to the Lake District to take on our second peak –Scafell Pike (978m). You'll stop for dinner en route then continue on to Wasdale Head; an untouched and tranquil part of the Lake District also renowned for being the birthplace of British climbing. You'll continue your trek in what remains of the daylight and head towards the summit. Glowing from your success you'll jump straight into the buses and head to the third and final peak – Snowdon.
Snowdon - It’s an early start today as you begin your final summit trek. You’ll take the Pyg track to ascend Snowdon – the highest mountain in Wales at 1,085m. Once you summit Snowdon your efforts will be hopefully rewarded with glorious views stretching as far as the eye can see. You will descend following the Llanberis route, before enjoying a celebratory lunch! You'll then take the transfer back to Chester train station for drop offs after a long, but very rewarding two days. Trekking distance – approx. 22 miles

I lost my cousin at 55 through this and I believe something could have been done to prevent her death.


My brother died of this, the hospital he was in THE DAY BEFORE HE DIED did not diagnose this or check for this.
