ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Mountain Climbing Experience - Climb Ben Nevis

Climb Ben Nevis in Fort William, or Glencoe in the Highlands of Scotland - an unforgettable and challenging climbing experience, accompanied throughout by your very own pro mountain guide!

Ben Nevis is, famously, the highest mountain in Great Britain, and this experience gives you the chance to reach its famous summit! This is a mountain climbing experience you'll never forget - choose to either climb Ben Nevis or, if you prefer, to explore and trek Glencoe in the Scottish Highlands.
Since history was recorded, man has looked tp conquer some of the most hostile mountains imaginable. Mountain climbing is a great test of personal strength and a chance to enjoy the great outdoors in a kind of 'Man vs Nature' sense.

This mountain climbing experience in Scotland is a really superb introduction to serious mountain climbing, as although Ben Nevis is challenging (and cold!), it is also accessible for novices to get to grips with a new discipline. With expert guidance from local mountain climbing instructors you will take on one of the tried and tested mountain routes on Ben Nevis. If the weather on the day of your mountain climbing experience is prohibitive, the climb may be moved to beautiful Glencoe.

You will find yourself both rock climbing and ice climbing, and when you take a moment to stop, breathe and enjoy, you will be treated to some of the most glorious views in the whole of Great Britain. Onward and upwards!

The Ben Nevis mountain climbing experience will start at the centre, where you meet your Scottish Sherpa for the day! He or she will be a qualified mountaineering instructor, so you are in very capable hands!

After a safety briefing you will be issued with your equipment and its time for the mountain! Your instructor will place all the ropes and safety measures - meaning that you will be able to enjoy your day in a safe and controlled environment. Over the course of the day you will climb high into the mountain through rock and/or ice and will have plenty of time to take in the breath taking scenery. Your day will finish back at the centre where you will have a de-brief over a nice hot drink.
