Three Peaks Adventure

A brilliant way to experience the Three Peaks of Great Britain

BusyBus has been delivering 3-Peaks Challenges for 17 years and enjoyed witnessing incredible feats of endurance, fitness and stamina as the many successful participants crossed the finishing line in under 24-hours. Sadly though we also shared in the frustration and disappointment of those who simply ran out of fuel. This got us thinking. Wouldn’t it be nice to do the “challenge” over a more realistic time-frame to really take in the splendour of the scenery and tick the box on the “100 things to do before you die” bucket-list in summiting each of the Great Britain’s highest peaks?

To enjoy this properly and complete it safely needs good organisation, seamless co-ordination, fit-for-purpose transport, competent driving, bonded teamwork, a focused strategy, sustained motivation and overall passion. Well, we think you simply won’t get better than BusyBus to deliver that all of that (and more) to you!

So, how about it? A road trip of almost 1,000 miles trekking over 25 miles and climbing almost 10,000ft!

This is a really special opportunity. Not only will you visit and experience the greatest landmarks of Scotland, England and Wales you will also feel the immense sense of satisfaction and achievement that will become lifelong memories. You’ll do it with your friends, loved ones, families or work colleagues and get to learn more about them too as you spend quality time together sharing a common experience and goal. With the BusyBus expertise and experience your can leave all the complexities and organisation to us whilst you get on with looking forward to it and then simply turning up at the meet & greet point.

They know the routes well, understand your needs fully and will become a valuable member of your team. There’s nothing worse than coming off a mountain feeling exhausted, wind howling, hungry, cold and then being met by a grumpy, miserable driver, so you won’t!
