Michael Goude

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 led expeditions in the UK, Europe and South America and has explored Canada, 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.
