Reach the summits of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks

The Yorkshire 3 Peaks is part of the exceptionally beautiful Pennine range, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. During this challenge you’ll take on a tough 25 miles walking the famous Yorkshire 3 Peaks;  Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-Y-Ghent – all in less than 12hrs!

This challenge is a great opportunity to test your limits, whether you’re a devoted walker or fairly new to the hills, as you will ascend an incredible 1585m. You’ll need a reasonable level of fitness to complete the challenge but the panoramic views from the 3 summits are unrivalled.

We specialise in running our mountain challenges as small group events to ensure a strong camaraderie within the challenge team. Our small instructor to client ratios guarantee you a highly personal experience – our expert guides will know you by name and support you on every step of the journey!

This incredible mountain adventure is not to be underestimated, but the sense of achievement and satisfaction you’ll gain completing this challenge is amazing.

Conservation and THE Yorkshire 3 peaks

Every year, thousands of people attempt this challenge in small unsupported groups or as large organised events. At Hatt Adventures we are very aware of the environmental impact this is having, which is why we run our challenges in a responsible way. We plan our timings to ensure that we are not disturbing the local residents at unsocial hours of the night and we ensure that all our clients are fully briefed on the environmental impact the events can have on the mountains and how to minimise them. We also only run small events, thus reducing our impact on the mountain trails.


Group Price

£4,950 for up to 12 people

We can cater for larger private groups and can arrange various, transport, catering and accommodation options.

challenge teams

Depending on the size of the event, we may transport your group in multiple minibuses. If this is the case, we will divide you into smaller groups for the duration of the challenge. You will be able to choose your group (depending on your fitness level and mountain walking experience) on the first evening but once in your group, you will not be able to change as the minibuses won’t always be together.

We will be stopping en route for a quick lunch and when we arrive at our accommodation, there will be a warm cup of tea awaiting you. In the evening we will run through any questions, check kit and give a mountain safety briefing, before going to bed for a good nights sleep!
