15 Peaks / 3000's / Snowdonia
A guided traverse of some of the major peaks in Snowdonia. Our 3 day challenge is a quality experience of walking some of the most beautiful and stunning mountainous country in the UK. Minimum of four people required for this event to proceed.
The 15 Peaks is well known as one of the toughest mountain based events in the UK. Also known as the Welsh 3000's, the challenge is not to be underestimated and many complete the distance within the traditional timescale of 24 hours.
We offer the challenge over 3 days with accommodation in shared bunkhouse style rooms. We take in some major peaks along the way including Crib Goch,Tryfan and Carnedd Dafydd, whilst at a more leisurely and manageable pace. The 3 day event also gives us time to appreciate the stunning scenery on offer and by summitting Snowdon as the final peak, it is a fitting finale to the 3 days.
You will be picked up and dropped off at your accommodation each day, so no need to worry about travel arrangements at the end of a long day's walk. Your Mountain Leader for the event will be local, knowledgeable and will ensure you have the very best experience of traversing the fantastic Snowdon, Glyderau and Carneddau mountain ranges.
Note: All our instructors are experienced, fully qualified for the course they are responsible for and are qualified first aiders. They will always strive to give you the best experience coupled with ensuring your safety and others.

What a fantastic experience my sister and I had when we booked Aim Higher to complete the 15 Peaks challenge. Great communication from booking. We had such amazing motivational skills to keep us going, supplied with great food and drinks. We would never have been able to complete it otherwise. Steve's navigational skills were amazing the last few hours we could hardly see a few feet in front of us. A massive thank you for making this an event that we will always remember. We will let you know what next years challenge will be !!!
