How To Find An Adventure Travel Job

Feb 9, 2008
With adventure travel becoming so popular, jobs in the adventure travel industry have increased significantly and are not as difficult to find as one might expect. Naturally, before the increased popularity of adventure travel, finding related jobs was fairly challenging but this is no longer the case. The adventure travel industry is now taking on talented people with the desire to help tourists find the perfect adventure destination and package holiday and help guide them on the chosen excursion.

One of the best qualities of adventure travel jobs is that they are available all throughout the world, including the most remote areas where adventure tourism has impacted the lives of local residents, provided a new source of income and raised the standards of living.

Another great feature of adventure travel jobs is the opportunity to travel, see new places and move beyond office walls of a traditional job. Employment opportunities can also cater to a specific activity you may enjoy. For instance, if you are competent in riding horses, there may very well be job openings pertaining to horse riding. A lot of travelers enjoy horse riding or simply want to experience it during an adventure travel vacation. Actually, many people would definitely not hesitate to saddle up for a horse ride and, even better, a tour of some beautiful scenery at the same time.

Speaking of activities, that is another benefit of adventure travel jobs. Such jobs can cover a variety of activities. You could work on a dude ranch, backpack through the wilderness or trek over mountains. If nature is what you love, you will surely find the perfect outdoor-related adventure job since there are many opportunities and activities from which to choose. Just be prepared for some roughing it in during these jobs, whether out camping or fishing for your meal. Keep in mind that this work may require that you know how to create some type of shelter or locate sources for clean water or, at least, know how to work a portable water purifier to ensure there is clean drinking water available.

Other readily available jobs are those specific to mountain climbing where you can be a teacher, a guide or even both. As expected, you need the proper expertise and training for a mountain climbing job. However, if you meet this requirement, are a good climber and enjoy it, this adventure travel job would be perfect for you.

There are many different adventure travel jobs beyond those listed above. If outdoor life is what you love, with a little effort you should be able to find an adventure travel job you love and say goodbye to the office jobs forever. To keep your career options open, it is recommended to keep a list of references from various adventure travel jobs you take throughout the years. This will be quite useful when you apply for new openings.
