The Alternative 3 Peaks

A big challenge on quiet mountains!

Welcome to something a little different....the alternative three peaks. In this adventure we will take on the second highest peaks of England, Scotland and Wales. Compared to the national three peaks challenge, which can be extremely busy, especially during the summer, the second highest peaks can almost feel deserted in comparison, giving you a feeling of beautiful solitude in the mountains.


As with out National 3 Peaks challenge, we have taken to deicision to spread this adventure out over thre days, allowing you to enjoy each of the mountains in daylight and to help minimise local environmental impacts.


Although this adventure can be done either North to South or South to North, we normally kick-off in Snowdonia, walking the brilliant Carneddau Horseshoe to our first summit, Carnedd Llewelyn, standing at 1064m high and giving stunning views across NE Snowdonia and the North Walian coast.


Our second mountain is the famous Hellvellyn in the Lake District.
