Join Royal Bank of Canada in the 3 Peaks Challenge, which takes on the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales all within 24 hours. The trek covers 40kms and involves 2,984m of ascent and descent.

Your 24 hour challenge begins in one of Scotland’s most scenic areas; Glen Nevis Valley. From here you will climb Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK, standing at 1,344m. Your first peak affords spectacular views as you trek into the sunset, then offering an immediate challenge as you trek into the night by the light of the moon and head torches. On descending Ben Nevis you will be driven through the night towards the beautiful Lake District.

Once you arrive in the Lakes you will begin the second of your 3 Peaks – Scafell Pike; the highest mountain in England standing at 978m. As you ascend through sunrise you can enjoy fantastic scenery looking down over the hills and lakes of the region. Your final challenge takes on the highest mountain in Wales; Snowdon, standing at 1,085m. Snowdon, or Yr Wyddfa in Welsh, is a national treasure and is a stunning end to the last of your 3 Peaks. Upon completion of your challenge you transfer to a hotel in Snowdonia for an evening of rest and celebration.
