Lake District 10 Peak challenge

The Lake District 10 Peak challenge, a great alternative to the National 3 Peaks, is a step up from challenges like the Yorkshire 3 Peaks. The route starts in Buttermere and finishes in Langdale, taking in ten of the Lake District's best (and highest) summits, including Great GableScafell Pike and Bow Fell; we can even visit Wainwright's favourite peak, Haystacks. All-in-all, it is 17 miles with 8000ft of ascent and so to complete it within the 24 hours you must have a good level of fitness. It will give you a much more enjoyable day than the National 3 Peaks; you will get a full day out in the beautiful Lake District hills, instead of being either stuck on a minibus or walking in the dark. So, if you are thinking of the National 3 Peaks, then we strongly recommend you consider the Lakes 10 Peaks instead; it will even work out cheaper for you!

We will start out early from Buttermere, and so we recommend you stay in the Lake District at least the evening before. We can book out accommodation for you, and provide you with transport back to the start (or your accommodation) at the end of the day. We'll discuss practicalities like this when you make a booking.


Our standard price for the Lakes 10 Peak challenge is £250 for 1-2 people, or £320 for 3-4 people (per group, so divide by the number of people for the price per person). There are further reductions for larger groups, so get in touch for a quote.
