Snowdon - Friday 15 May 2020

Ben Nevis - Friday 17 July 2020
Scotland’s iconic mountain is also the UK’s highest peak and summits at 1,344 metres above sea level. The trek takes 8 to 10 hours and includes some very low level scrambling on the ascent, with larger uneven rocks and steps for the majority of the climb.
Slieve Donard – Friday 16 October 2020
Overlooking the Irish Sea, Slieve Donard is Northern Ireland’s tallest mountain and summits at 850 metres above sea level. The hike is a 6-mile round trip but because it starts at sea level, it is a climb the whole way and will take between 7.5 and 8.5 hours to complete.
