The Employee Experience
Want to spend the summer hiking on a glacier every day? Or how about canoeing across a glacier-fed lake in the middle of the Tongass National Forest surrounded by mountains and wildlife? With Liquid Alaska Tours, this could be your life!
Guiding in Alaska is an experience in itself and what you do in your free time just is all an extra added bonus! Juneau has roughly around 30,000 people and three times the amount of hiking trails than it does roads. It is an outdoor enthusiasts dream, tucked away in a remote corner of Southeast Alaska where the mountains and glaciers meet the Pacific Ocean. Our employees spend their time exploring nature for both work and play, all summer long. Peek summer daylight is in excess 18 hours a day, so even with a full work day there is always ample time for non-work adventures. We do our best to make sure all employees have a great work/life balance, but remember this is a seasonal job that can be intense. So being flexible and always up for an adventure whether it is for work or play is a must!

Getting Here and Getting Around
Juneau is surrounded by the ocean and mountains, landlocked as a result. You can fly in to our international airport (multiple daily flights with Alaska Airlines or Delta Airlines) or use the Alaska Marine Highway ferry service. We will help coordinate pickups from the airport upon your arrival. The city itself has one major road that is 45 miles long with a regular public bus system and a compact, walkable downtown.
A vehicle is not a necessity but makes exploring the area much easier. You can either bring your own car via the ferry (departing from Bellingham, WA; Prince Rupert, CA; or Skagway, AK) or purchase a cheap car for the summer (this is very common). Bicycles are also a good solution, just be sure to have waterproof gear!
Mountains, Ocean, Ice Caves, Hiking, Backpacking, Camping, Climbing, Beach Fires, Tours, Photography, Northern Lights, Canoeing, and soooooo much more. With up to 18 hours of daylight during the summer, opportunities are endless. Juneau is also SE Alaska’s largest city, therefore it has pretty much everything you would need along with lots of different weekend festivals, weekly markets, and activities. There is even two movie theaters and a bowling alley!
