Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge

  • Iconic UK challenge in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales
  • Summit Yorkshire’s three tallest peaks in one day
  • Accomplish an ascent of 1,532m – higher than the UK’s largest mountain
  • Take in the wonderful scenery of Yorkshire Dales National Park
  • A marathon distance trek – but with three hills!

The Yorkshire Three Peaks – known as Britain’s classic hillwalking challenge – is a tough 25-mile walk through the idyllic Yorkshire Dales, where you summit the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, in under 12-hours.

The Yorkshire Three Peaks is a tough walking challenge that will push you physically and mentally. A classic walking adventure that everyone should attempt and it’s also a great way to discover the stunning Yorkshire Dales. The Yorkshire Three Peaks is the perfect for anyone wanting to challenge themselves on a tough long distance mountain walk. This is the ultimate walking challenge and one you will always remember.


And we’re off! After a very early start and a good breakfast it’s time to start trekking. The plan is to tackle Pen Y Ghent (691m) as the sun is still rising, enjoying some fantastic views across the mountain landscape en route.

After lunch, next up mighty Whernside (728m) beckons. You are now midway through the challenge, with just one more peak to complete before the end of the day!

Ingleborough (723m) is the third hurdle and the most challenging of the trio. Once at the top, take in the awesome panoramic views across the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

What goes up must come down so it’s time to descend back to Horton in Ribblesdale, where we are free to depart.

Please note that accommodation on the final day is not included. You may want to book yourself another night at a hostel/hotel to avoid travelling/driving home when tired. Visit www.visittheyorkshiredales.co.uk for lots of accommodation options.
