Arctic Range Adventure, one of Yukon’s leading outdoor adventure companies, is looking for a few exceptional adventure & sightseeing tour guides to work day and multi-day trips in the Yukon.
Here is the most fascinating landscape in the north west, and Arctic Range Adventure is a great company to work for. We also recognize that guides are an important factor in providing excellent adventure trips. We want the best.
We know that a road trip is a social event as much as it is a wilderness or back-country adventure, and guides are the catalysts that make the event what it is. Guides set the tone. Good guides can make an otherwise bad trip a good trip, and they can make an otherwise OK trip an excellent one. They do this through the energy they put into the trip. Not just the physical energy, but the social energy. Good guides have strong social skills. They care about people, and are sensitive to their needs. They are entertaining, engaging, and fun to be with.
