We offer a range of team building and charity fundraising events including the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, National 3 Peaks,  Lake District 24 Peaks, Lake District 3000 Footers, Welsh 3000 Footers, Lake District 10 Peaks and Lake District 6 Peaks Challenges.

We are geared to providing a personal service working with small size groups with average group size around 8 to 15 participants on our charity challenge events.

Although we can cater for larger groups - up to 80 usually divided into 8 man teams, group sizes are restricted on sensitive events such as the Three Peaks Challenge.

On this challenge you don't follow the usual tourist paths, we take you straight up the mountains via their edges!

A good head for heights is rewarded with sensational exposure and spectacular views - so why not give it a try!

  • Wales - Tryfan via the North Ridge

  • England - Helvellyn via Striding + Swirral Edge

  • Scotland - Ben Nevis via Carn Mor Dearg Arete

We operate all year round providing Winter Mountaineering Instructors to ensure the best possible safety standards, so for some fun in the snow why not have a go in winter!

  Winter snow on the 3 Peaks Challenge in May 2008


  • The Lakeland Triathlon - a tough 12 hour event biking, walking and canoe rafts
  • The Lakes and Mountain Challenge - 16 hours over 2 days walking and canoeing
  • The Race the Sun Challenge - 12 hours biking, walking and canoeing
  • The Hadrian's C2C - a tough 24 hour event covering 100 miles on bike and by foot
  • The Wasdale Challenge - a tough 15 hour event around the Wasdale Fells
  • Lakeland 8 - 5 peaks + 3 passes on foot + bike

Although the National 3 Peaks Challenge is increasingly popular; unfortunately, the Lake District does not derive any tangible financial benefit from this event. There is also an increasing body of opinion that the 3 Peaks has a detrimental effect in Wasdale Valley especially during the peak summer months. So why not come to the Lake District National Park and enjoy a great weekend putting something back into the local community - guest houses, pubs, restaurants and food suppliers all benefit and your business is most welcome...!
