If you’re lucky enough to be traveling as a group throughout Britain, and you’re fit enough, you may want to take advantage of the challenge known as The National Three Peaks.
Covering the highest peaks in Wales, Scotland and England, this challenge allows groups to organize an expedition which sees people climb all three of the highest peaks in the shortest time possible!
Scotland’s highest peak is Ben Nevis. The tallest of them all, it stands an impressively 1345m! With one dedicated main path to walk, it’s steep in ascent, but the views from the very beginning to the end are spectacular.
In Wales, the famous peak of Snowdon is the second highest, standing 1085m tall. There are several paths dotted around this mountain, ranging from easy to difficult. However, when taking the challenge, walkers will attempt one of the two more challenging trails, namely the Pyg Track or The Miners Track.
Finally, England’s offering is Scafell Pike. Located in the breathtakingly stunning Lake District National Park, this peak stands at 978m, taking in one specific path for the challenge.
