Adventure Guide Internship

The Ultimate Outdoor Travel, Train & Work Internship!



The Adventure Guide Internship was constructed as a stepping stone into the adventure tourism industry, but also is the perfect semester abroad option - offering adventure, qualifications and a job offer all in one.


Our 2017 programs have been very popular and we are excited about welcoming next year's intake to our glorious shores. Only a handful of places remain for our March and May programs, so please get in touch if you think you have what it takes to get into the adventure tourism industry.


Over twelve weeks of adventure and travel, you’ll find yourself on the top of the highest peaks, meandering down enormous glacier-driven river valleys, exploring new golden sand beaches by kayak, hanging from enormous rock faces with your new mates supporting you all the way.  New Zealand’s diverse and spectacular outdoors will be your classroom, with lessons on leadership, new outdoor skills and strategies to help in every area of life.


You’ll also complete world-recognised Outdoor adventure guiding certifications and gain a front line adventure tourism job offer in legendary Queenstown!


What makes Pure Exploration different?


Finding a job when you are travelling overseas is tough. It's competitive and often skill specific. We've worked closely with adventure tourism operators in New Zealand to develop a range of programs that not only help people get a foot in the door to a great adventure tourism job in Queenstown, but also provide knowledgeable and competent employees to local companies. We are everyday Kiwis, helping you have extraordinary experiences.
