The Welsh 3000 is a challenge that should not be underestimated. It takes a great deal of physical and mental endurance, emotional stamina and perseverance, all of which are seriously tested. However, with a 100% success rate, Nick, Simon and Roger have the skills, knowledge and most importantly, sense of humour, to support you on this journey of a lifetime. The challenge was extremely well managed and the navigational skills by all the guides were very impressive. After almost 22 hours of walking, the team had hit some low points with exhaustion and injuries taking their toll but nevertheless, the team pulled together and displayed an exceptional act of determination to finish, with encouragement every step of the way. The high’s massively outweighed the lows and the sense of self achievement is something that will certainly not be forgotten. Snowdonia is one of the most unique, beautifully rugged and dramatic landscapes in the world and I wouldn’t recommend allowing anyone other than the Fitways Adventures team to guide you through it.
Fitways was recommended to me by a work colleague and from the first contact Nick was incredibly helpful in providing practical advice on everything to do with the trip, even outside of his own remit – i.e. charity, group members and logistics. From everything leading up to and during the trip, Nick was always professional, efficient and above all a nice guy – which made us all feel like he was part of the team. Overall the entire group thoroughly enjoyed the trip and we were able to reach our charity goals.
I climbed Kilimanjaro, did the 3 Peaks Challenge and had my first outdoor rock climbing experience with the Fitways team. I had the most amazing experience with all three challenges and don’t think I could have done any of them without the amazing support , encouragement, fun and professionalism of Nick and his team. Whilst each of them proved a tough challenge they were also lots of fun due to the people on the trip and Nick’s sense of fun. I also felt completely safe at all times and Nick’s focus on safety, well being and helping you achieve your goal is second to none. Don’t go with anyone else if you can go with Fitways.
An amazing team which left me with amazing memories.
My Kilimanjaro trip with Fitways was, without a doubt, the best thing I have ever done.
The difference between a Fitways trip vs others out there is the attention given to every tiny detail to ensure that you get the most from your adventure and gives memories that will be cherished for a lifetime. Starting with the route itself, the Lemosho trail allows you to see the mountain in all its glory, plus has the added benefit of currently being very underused meaning you pretty much have it to yourself giving you an experience that many others will miss out on. The 7 day Fitways schedule gives you adequate acclimatisation so we all reached the top in best possible shape which made reaching the summit all the more breathtaking as you could truly take in the surroundings and what you’ve just achieved! What’s more, you have the benefit of a Western guide plus the handpicked Kili guides, the combination of which gives you absolutely everything you could need in terms of mountain experience and local knowledge (I came back with the ability to converse in Swahili!). Despite some initial reservations about the size of the task ahead, Nick and our guides made every single element of the climb achievable and more importantly an absolute pleasure at all times – there was not one moment of on the entire trip that I could have asked for more.
Keep it up Fitways, cant wait for the next adventure!
Thank you for an unbelievable weekend. It was ran superbly and thoroughly enjoyed it (despite the tough challenge it was). Once again, thank you very much to yourself and your team. Simon and Iona especially being my group guides were fantastic, giving small tips of advice and clear communication so I always felt very safe
Could not recommend Fitways enough, what an amazing and experienced team!! 3 Peaks was an incredible challenge and the team went out of their way to make sure we were able to complete it, despite the weather conditions we had! I can’t wait for the next challenge now :) Thanks Nick and co
Thank you and your team for the amazing experience this weekend. I was getting quite nervous when hearing of the severe conditions on Ben Nevis and potential risks, but the more you spoke about equipment needs etc, just proved to me and assured me that with you it would be totally safe. I then had the confidence and assurance to do it – that it would be ok – and it was. I was so impressed with your professionalism, your first- hand experience, knowledge and approach. It certainly gave me much assurance, I knew I was in good hands. I would not do this, or recommend anyone do this, with any company other than yours. This is serious stuff! You have a great team working for you, you have trained them well. I didn’t get to know all of them, but James, Rich and Roger in particular were great. Dave and I have nothing but praise respect and admiration for you, your company. Cannot fault anything in any way. Just feel lucky to have done this with you guys. Thanks again
Thanks to Nick our weekend in Snowdonia was amazing. Experienced guides and mountaineers, Nick and Simon both with expert local knowledge made climbing Crib Goch an absolute pleasure, despite the weather! Great organisation and attention to detail made for a memorable weekend in the mountains. Thanks to all at Fitways Adventures
Thank you for such an amazing day. I felt that I would be very much out of my depth with the group but Nick and Stuart were incredibly patient and supportive throughout the day. I should like to say how much I appreciated Stuart. He is very calm and gives you confidence with quiet instruction and support.
