Ben Nevis trek – June 2018

Friday 29 June 2018 - Sunday 1 July 2018

Touch the clouds as you trek Britain’s highest peak 29 June-1 July 2018.

What’s on offer?

Standing vigil high above the town of Fort William in the Scottish Highlands, Ben Nevis awaits those prepared to pursue its ancient pinnacle in aid of Pilgrims. Its skyward slopes zigzag high into the clouds, revealing spectacular panoramic views towards the Scottish coastline far below. At 1,344 metres (4,409 ft) above sea level, Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the entire British Isles and the experience of reaching its summit is a must for any bucket list.

It was the most amazing feeling in the world and 21 years on I have never forgotten that feeling. The camaraderie, bonding, laughs, support and care that we all experienced on that climb was out of this world and it completely changed my view of human nature and life.
