Adventure Guides

As a major factor to the success of the business and enjoyment of our customers, Canyon Explorers look for exceptional guides who deliver safe and enjoyable canyoning and climbing experiences. Ideal applicants will have a recognised canyoning qualification – equal to or higher than NZOIA Canyoning Level 1.

While previous canyon guiding experience is desirable, we do offer full training for the right candidate. Applicants with ropes, white water, first aid training, and previous outdoor guiding experience are preferred.

In order to give the best customer experience possible, our guides need to have more than just the technical capabilities. Positive, happy guides that make people feel safe and at ease when helping them overcome a personal challenge can make the experience. Because of this, soft skills and the ability to adapt to people’s individual needs are a must.

Guides also drive our customers to and from the canyon so a Passenger Endorsed NZ Drivers Licence (class ‘P’) is desirable. We recommend applying for the passenger licence early if this is something you’re considering.

If you think this is you, get in touch!
