Ben Nevis Days Out

 

Climb Britain's highest mountain!

ABOUT THE DAY

At 1,345m above sea level, Ben Nevis is Britain's highest mountain. There are numerous ways to walk (or climb) Ben Nevis. The most straight forward is the so-called donkey track, built to take Victorian ladies up to the summit observatory on the backs of donkeys. There is likely to be snow toward the summit on the April dates.

If we can we'll consider different routes up that show the splendour of the North Face cliffs, but this is weather dependent and also group dependent. 

There are options to miss out some of the main tourist track. One straight forward and the other taking in the mighty Carn Mor Dearg arete (if you have done Crib Goch in Wales, you'll be fine). However, the main route up will be the default position!

 

Meeting Point:

09:00am Ben Nevis Visitor Centre, Glen Nevis, Fort William, PH33 6PF

DifficultyThe approximate total distance & ascent is 17km / 10.5 miles distance and 1,352m / 4,463ft ascent. There is a good track although it can be steep in places.

Should we take the Carn Mor Dearg arete this will make the day more challenging. However, this will be a group decision on the day. If you are unhappy with the idea of it we won't do it.

Cost: The guided walk up Ben Nevis (weather permitting) is £79 per person if booking for one, with discounts for booking more people. This will include crampons and ice axe if the weather dictates. 16-18 year old's are welcome if accompanied by a parent or guardian. You will need to provide your own transport and accommodation.

Numbers: I can take a maximum of 8 and a minimum of 4 in order to run the events. If there are fewer than the minimum numbers booked you'll get a full refund.
