The River Deep Mountain High Team...

Johan Hoving - Partner and Senior Instructor

Johan's love of the outdoors established itself at a young age, with Mountain Biking and Kayaking being his number one pastimes as a teenager in Nottinghamshire. He then went to Birmingham University to get a BSc in Sport and Exercise Sciences. As well as being the place where he met Emma, Birmingham also opened the opportunity of becoming a trainee instructor at the university’s own outdoor pursuits centre on Coniston Water. After this he worked at some of the many outdoor centres in the Lakes where he honed his own style of giving people a pleasurable experience of outdoor sports on which we have built River Deep Mountain High.

Emma Hoving - Partner and Business Manager

Emma grew up in Chesterfield, gateway to the peak district and a part of her has always enjoyed paddling (in bare feet) in rivers and playing on rocks. Despite this, she staunchly refuses to be classed as an outdoors type as shopping, gardening and cafes are her preferred passions! She completed an MEng in Civil Engineering with Management at Birmingham University, but then followed Johan to the Lake District (he is her husband after all) where she has worked in marketing, training, customer service, cooking and personnel as well as some outdoor instructing - well, inevitable really.

In the office – Emma and Beth

We are all about helping you book the activities you want quickly and easily, providing local knowledge and assistance where required. If you’re not sure which activities would suit you then we'll happily talk you through the options, give you some ideas and give you the benefit of our personal experience from a 'man on the street' point of view.

Instructors – Will, Matt, Jason, Amy, Alex and Mark

The RDMH Instructing Team is made up from a mix of employed, contracted and freelance instructors. Each instructor brings with them different qualifications and activity specialities but their most important qualities are their friendliness and fun. Matt enjoys all the gorge walking and paddling sessions he does with groups of families and friends. Jason has a shared interest with Johan in Mountain Biking and Amy is a keen water baby, whether it be fresh or frozen! Will has a cheeky grin whenever he's told he can go outside and with Mark's excellent skills in Climbing, we really do have a great outdoor team that we love.
