Trek Details

The 10 Peaks is designed to involve fairly strenuous exercise and for your own safety you must be aware of this and consider carefully whether your general level of fitness, or any particular illness or ailment prevents you from participation.

This is a tough challenge that will test your endurance and strength. Set in the stunningly beautiful Lake District you will climb 10 peaks in 13-15 hours, encountering difficult terrain, lengthy descents and steep ascents along the way. Your mental and physical strength will be tested to the maximum.


You should have completed the Yorkshire Three peaks and have experience of climbing Snowdon and or Scafell Pike and or Ben Nevis. Should be familiar with map reading.
