Aug 12 2018
This fantastic challenge gives you the opportunity to conquer Britain's highest mountain, standing at an incredible 1,344m high, towering over the picturesque town of Fort William.
Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in Britain and stands 1344m high, rising from sea level at Loch Linnhe and towering over the town of Fort William.
Going from the bottom to the top of the mountain you pass through 4 different vegetation zones. There is snow on the summit for much of the year; it is not uncommon to find 8 feet of snow on the top during April. If you are lucky with the weather then the views from the summit are quite stunning.
To do this trip you need to have a reasonable level of fitness. No previous mountaineering experience is required for this trip, however, the fitter you are the more you will enjoy your day. The trip is fully guided by an experienced mountain leader with lots of experience on Ben Nevis!
