Yorkshire 3 Peaks
This is an amazing challenge in which you can conquer this difficult yet rewarding challenge in a way which best suits you. We have 3 different in options in which the participant can do the challenge in one day, one day and night or over two nights. This is a great feature to the challenge as it offers your supporters flexibility if you have other commitments and are unable to make a weekend of the challenge or it can spread it out and turn the challenge into a weekend event.
You will be able to witness the beautiful scenery Yorkshire has to offer by summiting Ingleborough (723m/2,372 ft), Pen-y-Ghent (694m/2,276 ft) and Whernside (736m/2,415 ft) all in one circular route starting and ending in Chapel-le-Dale. We have an amazing team on the challenge which offer support every step of the way on this tough but rewarding trek which includes over 1,700m of ascent.
In this brilliant challenge you will trek to the top of wales summiting Mount Snowdon at an elevation of 3,560ft. This great challenge will take the Pyg Track, which starts at the top of Pen y Pass and rises steadily with the imposing Crib Goch directly above. As the path gradually rises we are privy to amazing views down to Glaslyn far below. This challenge will offer wonderful support as you conquer this challenge and are rewarded with stunning views which can reach as far as Anglesey (on a clear day!). You will have the opportunity to camp over and enjoy a celebratory meal to toast their achievements and to continue enjoying the amazing atmosphere throughout the team. This is a great challenge for anybody new to trekking and is looking to start up their charity challenge adventures.
Snowdon at Night
This unique challenge features all of the amazing aspects mentioned above in our Snowdon challenge but in a unique spin on this challenge your participants will be summiting this incredible mountain at night. You will be able to experience trekking as the sunrises across Snowdonia National Park. This will provide stunning views and an experience which will not be forgotten any time soon. Finally, you will all toast their achievements with a celebratory breakfast. Our team provide exceptional support, this challenge was just completed for the first time last weekend and it was a huge success with raving reviews of the challenge.
This incredible trek combines both an amazing challenge filled with beautiful backdrops and views and a great aspect of history throughout. This trek will take your supporters from Lanercost Priory to Brocolitia, encompassing some of the most visited and fascinating ruins our country has to offer. This is an amazing experience with both a challenge and a very interesting educational experience. This amazing challenge has everything from our tented village, to exceptional guides which offer high levels of support, to gorgeous food all with a stunning backdrop.
