3 Peaks in 3 Days with a Guide

Join our relaxed and fun ‘3 Peaks in 3 Days’ guiding break.

Each of the Yorkshire 3 peaks are excellent individual day walks and achievable for any regular walker. The group will be no more than 12 people. Almost certainly I will be leading each day.

We will take our time on the climb to enjoy some of the interesting features that make the walks so good. Hull Pot on Pen y Ghent can be spectacular particularly after rain as is Gaping Gill on Ingleborough. The Ribblehead viaduct on Whernside needs no introduction with the railway adding much to the day.

I have written a book on the 3 Peaks and with a detailed history and geology of each mountain. To purchase a copy just follow this link.

    We really enjoyed The 3 Peaks in 3 Days walks. Jonathan is a really knowledgable guide and by taking on each peak on separate days he is able to take you off of the beaten track. Highly recommended for anyone who likes good walks, meeting like minded people and learning about the area.

    I have just completed the 3 peaks in 3 days with Jonathan as our guide and a small group of like minded people (aged from 44 to 70). Even as an experienced walker I can honestly say it was most enjoyable and informative. Especially going “Off Piste” as described by Jonathan; getting away from the main routes of the 3 mountains ensured less people and more fantastic views (weather permitting). The pace was well judged by Jonathan, we enjoyed the hard climbs punctuated with regular stops; as well as the extended routes to take in the less well known features such as Plover Fell on Pen y Ghent and the Tarns of western Whernside. Jonathan is obviously in his element “on the hill”, knowledgeable and very approachable. What a place to call your office. I have always had a desire to complete the 3 peaks but never as a race. This event helped me achieve my goal, thank you Jonathan. I highly recommend these walks and further information can be found at https://where2walk.co.uk/

    A brilliant trio of guided walks for those wishing to appreciate the Yorkshire Three Peaks as opposed to simply undertaking the 12-hour challenge. Jonathan is one of the very best guides I have encountered and someone whose knowledge and love of the Dales (and Lakes) comes across in spades on this Three Peaks in Three Days mini-break. This series of daily 10-mile walks visiting Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough utilises little of the well know challenge route itself and so introduces walkers to the most interesting routes by which to visit these summits. I can highly recommend the various guided walks and courses that Jonathan offers via https://where2walk.co.uk/ and look forward to his new book describing the history of the 3 peaks and these three walks when it appears later this year.
