Michelle Longhurst

Michelle has had a history of working in the outdoors industry rafting, climbing and se kayaking but like many took a 25 year break with other responsibilities 🙂 While she often prefers to work behind the scene she is passionate about the outdoors, seeing new places, meeting new people and exploring on her bike.

She is the force behind making sure everything runs smooth and stays under control. Within the group she provides an amazing balanced input and on trips she ensures everyone has the best possible experience..


Sprocket is our Australian Kelpie. He believes that he runs the company and ensures everyone involved stays in nice orderly groups as per his herding instinct. He can be found riding in our shuttle bus, chasing Mic in the trails or hanging out in the office waiting for an excuse to go to work…
