The Six Peaks Challenge
The Six Peaks Challenge involves climbing the highest peak in each of the
six regions of the British Isles - England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland,
Republic of Ireland and Isle of Man.

National Three Peaks Challenge,
with the addition of a further three peaks.
These peaks, in suggested order of completion, are: Snaefell on the Isle of Man, Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England, Snowdon in Wales,
Slieve Donard in Northern Ireland, and Carrantuohill in the Republic
The Six Peaks takes in 5904 metres (19,370ft) of ascent, around 50 miles of hill walking, 1000 miles of driving and
two sea crossings.
