Work as a Guide in the Remote Alaska Wilderness!

Wages/Pay:
$5,000.00 / season + tips
Experience:
Professional
Start Date:

Live and work as a guide in the most spectacular corner of Alaska! We are known throughout the state for our personable, professional guides and unique and memorable trip offerings.

We are hiring guides for glacier hiking, ice climbing, rafting and historical tours. All guides will lead glacier hikes and history tours. Ice climbing guides must have significant prior climbing experience and rafting guides must have prior commercial rowing experience on Class IV whitewater.

We are looking for people with a strong personal background in the outdoors, backpacking, climbing, and general exploring in wilderness environments. In additional to extensive personal outdoor experience you must have at least one of the following:

1. Previous guiding experience, at least 2 years
2. At least 2 seasons working in remote Alaska (wilderness or remote camp-based)
3. At least 5 years in the work-force post-schooling, in a job that demonstrates the ability to relate with people from all walks of life.

This job is amazing, but is incredibly hard work. You will live in a rustic camp, communally with your fellow guides, using an outhouse and sauna for bathing. You must be comfortable with being off the grid, dirty and remote for 4 months straight. In exchange you will have the most amazing summer of your life and maybe many more to come.

Internships and office staff/guide combo positions also available. See our website for more details.
