While we try and stick to the tried and tested itinerary below, the mountain, the accommodation availability and the weather sometimes has other ideas. We will always remain as flexible as possible to make sure we can change any plans if required.
This is a proposed itinerary and where you stay is subject to change based on how far in advance you book your trip. There is limited availability on this trek so we highly recommend booking in advance.
Meet the team and get going
We will meet you outside Fort William train station at 10am for a trip briefing before traveling up to the snow line for an introduction to the winter environment. This day’s session will cover an introduction / revision of ice axe and crampon skills and the style of mountaineering required for a winter ascent of Ben Nevis. By the end of the day you should feel well prepared for the climb. Overnight in Fort William with dinner taken at a local restaurant or pub.
Today is summit day. We will have an early start to make the most of the day as we make our way to the summit of Ben Nevis. The specific route you will take will depend on the weather and current conditions, as well as the general ability of the group. Once the climb is in the bag we take you back down to Fort William and bid farewell.
