Mike Goglin: Guide


Mike is from the land of venison and cheese – Wisconsin – yup, another one! He has been guiding for over 10 years and he grew up fishing, hunting, camping and canoeing throughout the north woods. Mike was introduced to whitewater through the boy scouts in 1996 at the age of 13. He has since used his skills to travel the globe working in Georgia, Idaho, Alaska, Guatemala, and Chile.

He is an accomplished class v kayaker (and even hunts from his kayak:) ) and has run most of the hardest rivers and creeks in the area. Mike is also extremely good with rope and rescue techniques. He now lives in Ashland and splits his timing guiding and working for a local solar company.
