We can arrange a number of mountain and outdoor challenges to suit your needs and desires. Charity abseils, SAS Selection ‘Fan Dance’ endurance march, Lakes 10 and 24 Peaks, self-powered National 3 Peaks or something completely new. We can give you advice, leadership, safety and logistics, please get in touch and we can discuss your requirements.

Lachlan was organised, responsive and generally very helpful re any queries. Our group all loved their guides who contributed positively to everyone’s enjoyment of the day. It was clear all the guides were well briefed and knew what they were doing. Our teams benefitted hugely from having the guides and some were even able to lend items such as coats, gloves and walking poles to those in need on the day.

I would not hesitate to recommend Lachlan and Mountain Addiction for future events. Everyone commented on how professional Lachlan and the guides were. So far we have been able to raise £14,089 for Alzheimer’s Research UK and hope to raise a total of £15,000. We are all so grateful for Lachlan’s help putting the event together as it has made this fundraising effort possible.

3 Peaks Challenge

the classic, but ours is different

This is the classic challenge that springs to mind whenever anyone mentions mountain challenge, literally 1000s complete it every year in the usual 24 hour time. But the motorway marathon that this entails is damaging to the environment, littering and erosion of the routes used is becoming more and more of a problem and fundamentally it is not that hard to complete.

So who wants to do that!

We offer a 3 Peaks Challenge that is different, it is kinder to the wonderful environment that we all want to continue to experience and follows the guidance issued by the British Mountaineering Council and the Three Peaks Partnership.

So how is it different?

the challenge

  • You complete Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon via tougher, more interesting and rewarding routes.

  • You complete the challenge over 3 consecutive days aiming for a total walking time of below 16 hours.

What we do for you

  • Plan your challenge. With military precision!

  • Leadership. Ensure your safety on every mountain.

  • Logistics. Arrange accommodation and provide your transport.

  • Pre-challenge guidance. Preparation, equipment requirements and carriage.

costs

Prices vary hugely depending upon group size, please enquire with your requirements.
