Rainbow Glacier Adventures is hiring intrepid photographers for our popular Photography tours in Skagway, Alaska. We are also hiring river raft, photography, and wildlife/sightseeing guides for our day tours in Haines, Alaska.
We provide training for our positions but ideal candidates would already have some experience and/or education that relate to the position.
The season begins in late April and continues until the end of September with tours running daily. Our guides drive and lead small-group educational tours. The typical tour is three to four hours in length and the average group size is 8 guests.
Successful candidates for our photography tours will gain experience teaching photography and will be rewarded with stunning views and plenty of opportunities for expanding their portfolios. Our photography guides assist guests with:
- How to properly expose a photograph
- Photographing wildlife
- Creating an interesting landscape photo
- Night sky and northern lights advice
- Working with guests’ devices ranging from phone cameras to pro gear
Our raft guides lead river trips down the Chilkat River in the famous Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve. Experience with rowing an oar-powered raft and certifications in Swiftwater Rescue and Wilderness First Responder is ideal.
Our wildlife tour guides lead wildlife viewing (brown bear sightings are common in August and September) and nature tours in the Chilkoot Lake State Park. A background in biology or natural history education is ideal.
We are an eco-tour company specializing in small-group, educational tours. We have an excellent reputation and believe in treating our employees and our guests with respect and kindness. We have employee housing available for our Skagway employees.
