The challenge

  • A beautiful trek through the night, to Britain’s highest peak
  • Prepare for a steep ascent, rough terrain and unpredictable weather
  • Follow the historic old Pony Track from Glen Nevis towards the summit
  • Relish spectacular sunrise views out towards Scandinavia
  • Enjoy a celebratory breakfast with new-found trekking partners

Challenge yourself mentally and physically against the dramatic landscapes of the western Grampians, as you summit the highest mountain in Britain overnight!

Beginning in Glen Nevis, you’ll make your way up the old Pony Track towards the summit of Ben Nevis, as the last rays of the day cast their light across the spectacular landscapes of the Scottish Highlands. Not for the faint hearted, the steep ascent, rough terrain and unpredictability of the weather demands you draw on reserves of stamina, fitness and determination to reach your goal.

The welcome sight of a new day brings waves of relief, exhilaration and joy as you gaze out across some the dramatic landscape.
