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. Peak summer daylight is in excess 18 hours a day, so even with a full workday 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!
If you’re seeking an exciting, challenging, demanding and rewarding environment, then working with us is a perfect match
