Have you ever wanted to get paid to explore our amazing US National Park system?
Now is your chance to share your passion for our amazing American west with clients from around the world. You will educate, entertain, and enlighten your guests with the history, geography, and incredible wildlife of the greater Yellowstone/Grand Teton area.
National Park Guided Tours is seeking tour guides for the 2022 spring, summer, and fall season to lead guests through the majestic Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks leaving from and returning to Jackson, Wyoming each day. Year-round opportunities may exist if the guide chooses to stay over the winter season.
Tours may last from 4-12 hours depending on what package customers select. You will be responsible for the safe transportation, education, and entertainment of our guests as you lead them through these amazing wildlands. Most of your area of work while guiding tours will be outside of cellular coverage in mountainous, boggy, snowy, or other varied terrain where dangerous conditions may exist from time to time, and guides should prepare for unexpected wildlife and/or possible medical or automotive emergencies to ensure the safety of our guests and employees.

Working with National Park Guided Tours has fringe benefits for guides that want to promote their artwork, writing, photography, videography, or other creative projects. Not only does constant park access grant plenty of opportunity for artists to find inspiration and create content, but we also encourage our guides to continue their professional growth and personal branding through sales and promotion of their creative projects across the National Park Guided Tours brand platforms.
While the requirements above are a minimum standard, there are additional opportunities to earn more money based on selling professional photography and videography packages for our guests so they can take the experience home with them, as well as editing and other creative projects the company may deem beneficial or necessary from time to time.
Additionally, National Park Guided Tours is always looking to expand to new and amazing areas. Current employees will have their first pick of any new locations we open before general hiring. As the company grows, so will the opportunities in management, marketing, and more. We wanted to create a career path for ourselves that revolved around adventure, exploration, and protecting our wildlands. We hope you come along for the ride.
