Activity Special Offer

Ben Nevis Group Walk

£70 per person - a saving of up to £110 per person on a private booking.

Offer valid every Wednesday and Sunday from May to September 2018.

Scheduled group walk up Ben Nevis, the UK's highest mountain. Your chance to join a group and together with your guide, climb to the summit at 1,344m. Based in Fort William and only using local guides, with Abacus Mountain Guides you won't just climb Ben Nevis, you'll learn all about the mountain and the wildlife, geology and history it has to offer. The pub at the end of the path is a great place to finish your day with a well earned pint!

Not only is Ben Nevis the highest point in the UK but it is home to some of the rarest plants in the UK and has always played a central role in the development of mountaineering across the world. Don't just climb Ben Nevis, discover more as you learn all about it's history, geology, flora and fauna!

If you are reasonably fit and conditions are good you should be able to walk up Ben Nevis in a walk of six to eight hours - but you should never take it lightly. Good planning and preparation are vital - conditions can change dramatically even in the best weather.

The Mountain Path starts in Glen Nevis and is around 16km (10 miles) there and back. It climbs 1,300m and is a full mountain walking experience which requires sturdy boots and good equipment. There can be snow patches on the route until July or August and the summit is regularly 9C colder than at sea level. So if it is a warm 18C in Fort William it might be a cold 9C on top with wind chill making it feel much colder.
