    When it came to arranging our Ultimate Challenge week, we didnt hold back on the things that make your heart race. River swimming, trekking, cycling, kayaking this is a real test of will and endurance. Luckily, the Glacier National Park is also the perfect place to chill out with your new comrades, so weve included plenty of time for fly fishing and drinks under the late summer sun.

    Deposit 500: This is a non-refundable deposit to secure your spot. The remainder of 2,100 is due by 7 July 2019 once an invoice is sent.

    • Did the Hike/Bike, MTB, Kayak, Swim in 2017

      A completely unforgettable experience in the stunning surroundings of Glacier National Park, made even better by the fact that I did the race with my 16 year old son! Great organisation meant you could really focus on the physical challenges and the camps were like a holiday at the end of every day. As a first time open water swimmer I was made to feel confident in advance of the stage and with plenty of support on the water I could really concentrate on just getting the swim done without worrying about anything (except my awful swimming). Great experience that I will certainly repeat.
