Getting to the Oxfordshire pick up
DAY 1: Snowdon
On the first morning we pick walkers up on route to beautiful North Wales, where we discover mighty mount Snowdon!
That afternoon we head up from Pen y Pass car park to tackle the steep Pyg Track that rises up around the reservoir of Llyn Llydaw; crossing the causeway and climbing the northern tip of Glaslyn. The hike continues on a steep zig-zag before one last push to the 1085m summit for a view of the sun setting over a distant horizon.
After 5 to 6 hours on the mountain, the evening meal is spent celebrating the achievements of a great first day, after which everyone sleeps well at our overnight accommodation.
DAY 2: Scafell Pike
After an early start and 5 hours on the minibus, we finally discover the picturesque twisty lanes leading to Scafell Pike amidst the stunning western Lake District. The highest mountain in England has surprisingly rocky and unrelentingly steep paths. After another 5 or 6 hours of serious hill hiking with the peak at 978m, we aim to finish and head for our Lakes accommodation by sunset.
DAY 3: Ben Nevis
Heading north into Scotland and on through the magnificent highlands; a drive to take your breath away through monstrous scenery of beautiful Glencoe. We finally reach our biggest challenge; a 1345m climb from Fort William to Britain’s highest point; the summit plateau of colossal Ben Nevis. Jaw dropping, incredible views! This giant takes in excess of 6 hours to conquer, meaning our evening celebration in Fort William will be well earned, before the drive home next morning.
Note: Your details will be forwarded to Chris from Get Outdoors, and he will communicate with you directly.
