Itinerary

DAY 1, FRI 15 JUN 2018

FRIDAY AFTERNOON

The day begins at 6am as the group  meets at Zoë’s Place , Coventry. Following a warm welcome, we head off on our executive 33 seater mini coach by road to Fort William in Scotland. We will arrive at our hostel in Fort William. After our evening meal we will turn in for the night ahead of tomorrow’s early start for our big adventure.

DAY 2, SAT 16 JUN 2018

BEN NEVIS AND SCAFELL PIKE

Ben Nevis

It’s a super early start (5am) as we get up and eat an continental breakfast, before we head off to tackle the first of the three peaks.

Standing at the western end of the Grampian Mountains, Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the British Isles and is formed from the collapsed dome of an ancient volcano. The trail up to the summit begins on the eastern side of Glen Nevis, from where we follow a steep path up to the saddle of Lochan Meall an t-Suidhe (570m). From here we then begin a zigzag ascent up the western flank of Ben Nevis to the summit. There are only ten miles to cover, but they will be challenging and will take some six hours to do.

Be sure to stay mindful and aware at all times as the path is uneven and slippery in parts.

The pay-off at the top is immense. On a clear day, the views can stretch for 120 miles across the Torridon Hills, Ben Lomond and out towards County Antrim in Northern Ireland. The group will transfer by coach southwards towards Wasdale in the Lake District. Dinner will be served at a local hotel in Gosforth before we transfer via mini bus to Wasdale Head for our ascent of Scafell Pike (978m). Scafell Pike is the highest mountain in England and consists of a steep ascent involving some easy scrambling in places. We will descend in darkness before trying to catch some sleep on the drive to Snowdonia.

 DAY 3, SUN 17 JUN 2018

SNOWDON

Snowdon

Hopefully you will have had time to recharge for another early start. Time is at a premium, however, as the final peak still awaits us. Driving on to Pen y Pass at the high end of the Lanberis Pass, we follow a rocky trail along the Pyg Track to the top of Snowdonia National Park in Wales.

Teamwork and determination are all important as we forge our way onwards and upwards to conquer this final challenge. Snowdon and its surrounding peaks have been described as true examples of alpine typography and from our elevated viewpoint you can take in the surrounding lakes and cwms and, weather permitting, some of the most extensive views in the British Isles. On a clear day you can see four kingdoms, 24 counties, 29 lakes and 17 islands!

Resting at the top for some group photos and impromptu celebrations, we head back to our coach for the drive back to Coventry.

 IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Please Note: We do not guarantee completing this challenge in 30 hours. Sky Blue Adventures believe that running the event in this manner is more responsible to the environments and local communities we pass through.

The itinerary is there as a guide and may change due to unusual weather patterns, the strength of the group, or other unforeseen circumstances. We will do our very best to keep to the set itinerary, however we cannot be held responsible for any last minute changes that may occur. In all such circumstances though, your challenge leader will have the final say.
