Join this spectacular climbing adventure to the summit of Ben Nevis. Reach the top of the highest peak in the British Isles, on this trip in the Scottish Highlands in the UK.
Ben Nevis rises at 1,345 meters, in the western part of the Grampian Mountains right at the heart of the Lochaber area, in Scotland, near Fort William.
This dazzling mountain offers endless climbing options, from rock climbing for all levels on its 700 meters cliffs on the north part, to impressive ice climbing walls. But it is the classical climbing routes here that attract more people during the summer months.

Essential Items for your Ben Nevis ascent: - Small rucksack (back pack) – big enough to carry your personal equipment, food and drink. A waterproof liner or plastic bag inside is highly recommended to keep things dry. - Waterproof jacket and trousers. Jacket must have a hood. A shell type jacket (without padding or insulation) is recommended. - Insulating jacket or jumper. Polyester type fleece is recommended. Warm hat and gloves. - Walking Boots or sturdy trainers with good grip. - Food and water or drink. - Personal first aid items - blister plasters (compeed), suncream Recommended Items I also recommend avoiding using cotton clothing. Cotton holds the water and is slow to dry which will cause you to become cold and uncomfortable. A nylon / polyester type next to skin or baselayer is recommended. Denim jeans are not recommended. Walking poles - these can make the coming down a bit easier on the knees. Physical fitness and medical conditions Mountain activities requires a good level of personal fitness. You are responsible for ensuring you are physically fit enough to complete the day. If you are on any medication or have any medical conditions that may cause a problem during the day, you are politely requested to inform your instructor (e.g. asthma – carry an inhaler, diabetes etc.).

I love climbing and this passion has taken me all over the world, even to the summit of Mount Everest. I have also climbed in the Andes, as well as in the Alps, Norway and Canada. I reached the summit of Mount Everest on May 2001, as a member of the RAF Mountain Rescue Service Everest North Ridge expedition.
I first started mountaineering in Scotland with the RAF Mountain Rescue Service, over 20 years ago. Since then, I haven't stopped climbing and exploring new mountains in the UK and abroad. I have been a RAF Mountain Rescue Team Leader and also the Chief Instructor for 5 years. I have also climbed all the Munros, the Scottish peaks above 3000 feet.
I love climbing around North Wales and the rest of the UK. We have so many amazing climbing and scrambling spots to discover in this area! I enjoy taking my clients there for rock climbing, scrambling and mountain skills courses or for a guided day out.

Dewi was great..! I really struggled with self motivation. Dewi believed in me. A few rests on the way up & we made it. Honestly the views were breathtaking..! One of the best things I have done in the UK. Dewi was a real asset to the company & very knowledgable. Definitely recommend booking a guide.
We enjoyed every bit of the hike. Emma was such a lovely guide. It was a great overall experience.
