People are drawn to the adventure tourism industry for many reasons, but in our modern world where technology and consumerism clog our senses and mundane busyness leaves us weary at the end of each day, it is no wonder this industry is booming. We are all happier in the outdoors, you feel better, you sleep better, time slows and the air feels good to breathe in.
Working in an industry where you are helping other people enjoy not only the outdoors, but feeling good themselves is great.
Our adventure guide programs were created to provide opportunities to gain valuable qualifications in the outdoor and tourism industries while emphasising personal development and global citizenship.
Whether you are looking for a GAP year option prior to entering university, a way to enter the adventure tourism industry, or a short career break perhaps, our work and travel programs are perfectly suited for you. You'll gain valuable training and work experience in a structured but laid-back environment designed to give you all the tools you need to enter the tourism industry ready to take on any challenge.
You'll head out into backcountry to places most only dream of seeing to learn everything it takes to become an outdoor guide. Gain guiding qualifications in rock climbing, abseiling, trekking, mountain biking, rafting as well as in pre-hospital emergency care in a small, supportive group of like-minded individuals. Complete your training with real-world work experience with adventure tourism industry professionals that will look killer on your CV.

We have chosen a number of locations for our programs - each selected for their value to a certain type of traveller. Some for disciplines - such as Patagonia for hiking enthusiasts and those wanting to experience its sublime beauty or Queenstown New Zealand for its awesome mix of fun, outdoor life and varied landscape.
