Job starts in 4 months (May 19, 2020)

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 glacier/historical tours. All of our guides will lead glacier hikes and history tours. In addition, guides with significant prior ice climbing experience and/or commercial rowing experience on Class IV whitewater are highly desired but not required.

We are looking for people with a strong personal background in the outdoors, backpacking, climbing, and general exploring in wilderness environments. In addition 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 4 years of college and/or life experience post-high-school and job experience that demonstrates your ability to relate to people from many different backgrounds.

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.
