You must go on adventures to find out where you truly belong.
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 led expeditions in the UK, Europe and South America and has explored Canada, New Zealand, Nepal and Tibet. He climbed the highest mountain in Europe, Mt Elbrus (5,642m) in 2017 and 2018, the highest mountain in the Atlas Mountains, Toubkal (4,167m) in 2018 and will return to Nepal in 2019.
Michael is a qualified Rock Climbing Instructor, International Mountain Leader, Canoe & Kayak Coach, Ski Instructor and holds the Mountain Instructor Award. He is also trained in Mountain First Aid.

Here I show what I take in my personal first aid kit when I go hiking, what I add to it when I’m leading a group, and what extras I ensure I have when I’m trekking in more remote areas of the UK and abroad.
