How to bring your family, friends and partners on your journey
So, you like the idea of doing the 3N Challenge but you're asking yourself, "How can I spend that much time away from my family/partner?"
The answer is simple: bring them along!
What's that? There's no way on earth they'd want to do this? Fear not - they don't have to do the Challenge, but there are lots of options to join you where we train and before or after the Challenge itself.
3NC team members and their significant others have spent long weekends doing everything from walking up Mt. Snowdon to the fastest zipwire in the world in Snowdonia (Betws Y Coed, Lake Bala & Llangollen), the historic sites and nature reserves around Anglesey, experienced the natural beauty of the Forest of Dean and the Brecon Beacons in Herefordshire & South Wales (not to mention experiencing the benefits of being in darkest Cider country) and enjoyed the rustic pubs and plethora of history in the Kent and Sussex Weald, not to mention Dartmoor National Park and the coastal path of the South-West.
Then there's those who've added longer trips, with the opportunity to experience the outdoors Finnish or Canadian style, from wilderness resorts to taking a break in the luxury of a lakeland summer cottage surrounded by forest (you get the added bonus of wood-fired Saunas in Finland - sorry Canada, your canoes may be superior but you guys need to get with the program on that one).
On route to the 3NC locations there's potential for city breaks in London, Warwick, Chester, Caernarfon, Manchester, Oxford, Brighton (to name just a few) and further afield there's Helsinki, Savonlinna, Toronto and Ottawa to consider.
So, we can't change the fact that joining the 3NC expedition team for the trek is going to take up a lot of your time, but just know that there are plenty of ways you can share the adventure and that you are welcome to do so!
