Ben Nevis Winter Camping

From: £180.00

Our newest adventure introduced in winter 2017. This is the ultimate of ascending the highest peak in Scotland. Camping on the summit of Ben Nevis.


This is something very unique and only Unexplored Scotland offers a night in the winter on top of Ben Nevis. This is a real adventure since the conditions in the winter can be a bit hairy at times and you will also have the summit to ourselves and don’t need to share the moment with a lot of people. We also provide 4 season tents, which will stand up to almost anything and inflatable sleeping mats. Since there is very little daylight available it makes perfect sense you just take your time on the ascent and not be rushed to get back down before it gets dark.


Allt a’Mhuilinn and the Pony Track is the easiest approach to the summit. If the conditions permit an ascent via Coire Leiss is also possible. The path could be covered by fresh snow at any time of the winter. Finding the way up is still pretty straightforward. Starting at the North face car park you will walk up to the C.I.C. Hut and view the impressive Nevis North Face. Then over to the Pony track and up to the summit.

We offer group discounts for groups of 3 and over. Just click on book now at the date you want to book, increase the number of participants in the basket and update to see how much you can save.

We will always try our best to camp on the summit of Ben Nevis. However, we can’t really control the rather unpredictable weather on the mountain. In the event of adverse weather, we will find an alternative camping site at Ben Nevis.

    Camping on the summit of Ben Nevis was an absolute amazing experience. To be there when everyone else has already turned around and have the sunset and sunrise only for you was an blissful experience. I don’t know how it would be ion bad weather, since I got lucky and experienced clear skies (during the night, temperature have reached -5º, but the equipment was good).
    Also, Andreas is really a nice guy, a very helpful and easygoing person. Recommended!
