The Ben Nevis challenge takes you into the heart of the breath taking Western Highlands in order to conquer the highest peak in Britain set at 1,343m (4,409ft) above sea level.
Your trail to the summit is not technically difficult, but trekking will be strenuous – stamina and determination are a must. The stunning views of the highlands will be with you all the way and provide a fantastic backdrop to this epic weekend adventure.
Day 1 – Meet at Glasgow Central Train Station / Glasgow International Airport at approximately 3pm for your 3 hour transfer to Fort William – the base of all Ben Nevis ascents located on the shores of Loch Linnhe. Upon arrival at your accommodation you will have an evening meal as a group and a briefing about the weekend challenge ahead.
Day 2 – Ben Nevis (1,343m). After a hearty breakfast, you set off on your challenge! The trek to the summit zig zags its way through tough terrain and the landscape becomes ever more remote as you trek higher and higher, leaving the lowlands behind you. Your ascent should take approximately 4 hours, and upon reaching the summit, you will be able to enjoy your packed lunch and take in the stunning views. After a group photo, you begin your descent which should take approximately 3 hours. This evening, you’ll mark our accomplishment with a celebratory dinner and drinks. Distance trekked – approx. 10 miles
Day 3 – Following breakfast, transfer from Fort William to Glasgow Central Train Station where the challenge ends. Arrive in Glasgow for about 2pm in order for trekkers to continue with their onward journeys.
