Welsh 3 Peaks 

The Welsh 3 Peaks challenge takes on Snowdon in the North, Cadair Idris in Mid Wales and Pen y Fan in South Wales, all in 24 hours. Not to be underestimated, this would be three big mountain days on their own!



Our Welsh 3 Peaks challenge is another big one! If you choose to try it in 24 hours we have a 4.30am start at the Storey Arms and take on Pen y Fan (886m). We then travel onto South Snowdonia (A drive of about 2.30hrs), and take on Cadair Idris (893m). Our final journey of around an hour, takes us up to Pen y Pass and our final Peak Snowdon (1085m).

If you choose to take on the challenge over three days, we will arrange a meeting point and time each day and guide you over one of the three ranges per day.

Please note -The price does not include transport or accommodation. The price includes guiding and pre trip support. We will liaise with you to arrange appropriate accommodation sites and transport methods.
