Sunset, Sunrise and Night Challenges with Lakeland Mountain Guides

We LOVE organising night events! There is nothing quite like guiding a group through the night to the summit of a mountain in time for a glorious golden sunrise. Of course, the weather doesn't always go our way, but the physical and mental challenge remains the same and so it is always a rewarding experience. 

Scafell Pike for Sunrise / Sunset

The best way to achieve Scafell Pike for sunrise or sunset is to ascend from Wasdale. This route is not only the most direct, it is also suitably for people of all abilities. We tend to allow in the region of 3 hours before sunset or sunrise in order to reach the top. Thanks to the positioning of Scafell Pike either experience is pretty incredible thanks to uninterrupted views.

Snowdon for Sunrise / Sunset

This is without a doubt one of our most popular night events, and over the years we've had a huge amount of success with various charities, companies and groups of mates who have wanted to undertake Snowdon for sunrise or sunset. Much like the Wasdale route up Scafell Pike, we tend to use the Llanberis Path thanks to it's ease. People of all abilities can ascend Snowdon via the Llanberis Path.

Depending on the group / time of year /  weather, there are other route options to the summit.

The Yorkshire 3 Peaks at Night

The Yorkshire 3 Peaks is a well known classic walking round and certainly a worthwhile day out. Taking on the challenge at night really adds a hard twist to it, drawing out a requirement for mental resilience from everyone who dares to undertake it. 

The challenge starts about 90 minutes or so before sunset, so by the time you get up your first peak you should enjoy the golden glows of the sun setting. As darkness sets you'll be chewing up the miles, and Whernside will be a totally dark experience. 

Once up on Ingleborough dawn will be breaking, and by the time you reach the finish line the sun will be up and your challenge completed.

As with the summer challenge the route crosses the road twice which provide a super opportunity to fuel up, warm up or change clothes. It also offers an opportunity for people to drop out if required. You can provide your own support vehicle, or bolt it on as part of our service to the event. 

Taking on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks at Night really is no mean feat, but it's still suitable for people of a wide range of fitness abilities and walking experiences.
