We are not saying that there are no other good 3 Peaks Challenge providers. However, there are a huge number of poor companies out there who use inexperienced staff and have a limited understanding of the challenge and what conditions can really be like.
The Director of Adventure Challenge has been working in the outdoor industry for over 20 years: Having provided adventurous outdoor activities for over half a million people in that time, he, his companies and staff have an impeccable safety record, without a single insurance claim. We wish to keep it that way and your safety is of vital importance to us.
We are lucky to be based in Keswick in the Northern Lake District just a few miles from Scafell. The area has the highest density of qualified outdoor instructors anywhere in the country. It is from this pool that we are able to employ some of the best, most experienced and qualified guides. They have extensive experience in running the challenge and all of our guides know it inside out and hold professional qualifications to work on the mountains. When it’s dark with driving rain and visibility of less than 10 meters you will be glad of their navigational expertise: Every year our guides bring down other (‘guided’) groups who have been lost on the mountain. Our staff are our best asset, we do not employ 'wet behind the ears'’ newly qualified staff. Our team has vast experience and understanding of what is needed to look after your physical and mental well being.
Most people wish to complete the challenge in the 24 hour schedule, we are fully aware that any small delays are cumulative and could be vital, so we do everything within our powers to maximise people’s chances of success. If you contact us you will be dealing with someone who has first-hand experience of working on the challenge.
One of the main advantages we have over other companies is that we do not outsource the transport element which many of the other providers do. This can cause significant time delays. During the course of our challenges we have witnessed or been told of the following problems with other providers:-
Of secondary importance to all of the above; we are not greedy people, and luckily for you that makes us among the cheapest providers in the country !
