Winter ascent of Ben Nevis - 25 Jan

Winter ascent of Ben Nevis - 25 Jan


24-27 January 2024


Bed on sleeper train from London to Fort William (return) included! - NO DAYS OFF WORK!


We will spend the weekend on the west coast of Scotland to explore the local mountains in their cosy (or cold) winter jackets... This trip will include a winter ascent of Ben Nevis - The highest peak in The UK!


To fully appreciate and enjoy a winter ascent, it is best to be properly prepared for the winter environment - with an early start, good crampon technique and the right equipment all helping to give a truly memorable mountain day.


This trip is suitable for anyone with summer mountain hiking experience and a good level of fitness.  Winter hiking experience is not necessary - A Full day of winter skills tuition will be provided prior to attempting the hike to the summit of Britain!


As always, we’ll sort out the travel, transfers and accommodation so just meet in London and leave the rest to us.

  • Friday (from 9pm) - Meet outside London Euston train station and board the Caledonian Sleeper train for an overnight journey to Fort William (option of having an airpline-style seat, or a bed in a twin room)

    Saturday - Meet you guide in Fort William at 10am for a trip briefing before journeying in the local area to the snow line for an introduction to the winter environment, an introduction/revision of ice axe/cramponing skills and the style of mountaineering required for a winter ascent.

    Sunday - An early start, to make the most of the day, we will make our way to the summit of Ben Nevis.  The specific route we take will depend on experience, ability and weather conditions.

    At the end of the day you will be transported to Fort William for your departure home.

    The Caledonian Sleeper train will arive at London Euston around 9am on Monday
