  • Guide - Summer 2023 and YEAR ROUND

    Guest Services
    Northern Alaska Tour Company

    Guiding with Northern Alaska Tour Company is a high-energy position best suited to individuals who make social connections easily, who genuinely love interacting with others and who thrive in positions of responsibility.   

    Please consider applying as a guide if all of the following applies to you:

    • You enjoy working hard with satisfying results!
    • You would absolutely enjoy sharing with visitors your enthusiasm for the land and peoples that are Alaska's Arctic! 
    • You want to work with a team of coworkers passionately committed to working together to create a high-quality AND safe travel experience in Alaska's Arctic!
    • You want to work in a positive work environment with coworkers that are supportive of each other's personal goals!
    • You would embrace having a physical work environment that is the splendor of Alaska's Arctic!
    • You would appreciate the personal growth resulting from the challenges accompanying the independence and responsibility associated with guiding or coordinating a group!

    All of our tours are ground-based, traveling into northern Alaska on the industrial road called the Dalton Highway. We use 15 passenger vans configured to carry fewer than 10 persons and 25 passenger coaches. We share the road with heavy trucks freighting material to Deadhorse on the Arctic Coast of Alaska to support the oil fields around Prudhoe Bay; other tour operators and work crews; and, every once in a while, independent private vehicles. Guides share the story of Alaska's Arctic - the human history as well as the natural history of permafrost, the boreal forest, and its wild creatures. They manage the day and guest expectations, help guests make connections to each other and to the environment, and generally ensure that each guest is as comfortable, engaged and enjoying themselves as possible.

    All guides start out conducting our Arctic Circle Drive Adventure.  The total distance to the Circle and back is almost exactly 400 miles - a fairly slow and rough 400 miles.
