Route description
Route description

The Three Peaks challenge has been steadily growing in popularity in recent times and its primary aim is to climb Scotland, England, and Wales' highest mountains within the tight 24hr time-frame.

There are a number of ways in which this challenge can be tackled. However, RAW adventures have a proven track record of delivering a safe, smooth, and ultimately epic experience. Between them, they have completed the challenge on over 50 occasions and work closely with a host of experienced Mountain Leaders who have an in-depth knowledge of the routes and the extensive challenge which these peaks pose.

Raw adventures challenge runs from 12 Sept - 14 Sept and bookings must be a minimum of 8 people.

With a final distance of 37KM walked and a total ascension of 3064 metres, this is certainly a test of endurance. However, with the right training and advice it is one that can be completed be hikers of all abilities.

RAW adventures contribute to all three of the peaks conservation organisations - Friends of Nevis, Fix The Fells, and Snowdonia Society.
