My Expedition Rocks

My Expedition Rocks was founded in 2016 by John Rocks (do you see what we did with the company name there?!).

Having worked in the outdoor industry for 15 years, both as an instructor and a manager, John really wanted to bring a breath of fresh air to the industry. John oversees all of the activity formulation and instructor team at My Expedition Rocks. He is qualified in a number of outdoor activities, allowing him the opportunity to work abroad on expeditions, indulging his passion for exploration of not just a country, mountain or culture, but also himself as an individual. In turn, this experience allows him to help others reach their potential during any program or activity.
