You must go on adventures to find out where you truly belong.
– Sue Fitzmaurice
Learn how to use a map and compass so that you can be self sufficient in the hills. Our four levels of training can be completed as individual days or built into a weekend or full week workshops.
If you have dreamed of walking in the hills and mountains but your lack of confidence or experience is holding you back then our Guided Hill and Mountain Days could be just what you’re looking for.
RockRiver Expeditions offers a full technical advice service to individuals, schools and organisations so that you can run activities with the reassurance that you’re doing things correctly.
Owner, Mountain and River Leader
“I grew up hiking in the hills and kayaking on rivers then discovered rock climbing while studying at University. It was years later when I changed my hobby into my career, retraining to teach Outdoor Adventure Sports at a higher education college that I saw how the young people grew through learning new skills and experiencing new activities, and it made me want to teach more widely. I founded RockRiver Expeditions in 2015 and now work with people of all ages, throughout the UK, teaching skills and facilitating your adventures.”
“I will help you take your first steps into the mountains, discover the thrill of climbing on rock and the exhilaration of paddling down rivers. Or if you’re already out there and want to improve I will share my knowledge and experience to enable you to stretch your horizons further.”
Michael has explored the UK and Europe, Canada, Ecuador, New Zealand, Nepal and Tibet. He plans to climb Elbrus in late 2017 and will return to Nepal to climb Lhotse in the spring of 2018.
Michael is a qualified Rock Climbing Instructor, Mountain Leader, Canoe & Kayak Coach and Ski Instructor. He is also trained in Mountain First Aid.

Yep, that's not a typo, it does say Boobs not Boots. And girls, we need to look after our boobs when we're hiking as much as we look after our feet in our boots, which means we need to talk Bras. Some walkers will happily wear their M&S (other brands are...
