The five peaks challenge - If you've done the 3 peaks challenge and are looking for something similar but even more challengeing, the 5 peaks challenge may be the one for you.

This is an attempt to climb the highest mountain, not just in England, Scotland and Wales, but Ireland and northern Ireland as well! it's a significant undertaking and will test your physical and mental toughness. It also involves a return sea crossing by ferry.

This challenge covers a 5 day period from initial meeting to return to the UK. A typical itinerary would involve meeting on day one and travel to accomodation for an overnight stay and safety briefing etc. Day 2 & 3 sees you climbing the 3 peaks in the UK followed by a ferrry crossing to Ireland where we spend our 2nd night's accomodation. Day 4 sees us climbing the two mountains on the island of Ireland, followed by a welcome celebration and our 3rd night's accomodation. Day 5 sees us returning to the UK for onward travel.

As with all our challenges we can organise a 5 peaks challenge to suit the requirements of individual groups.
