The Adventure Guide Lifestyle
Water rushes past you as you descend the winding river making your way carefully past jagged rocks and ends of logs poking up above the current. Your pack sits neatly tucked in front of you as you reminisce on the past few days of your wilderness journey. Glimpses of the fish you cooked fireside and morning dew next to your coffee spot, amongst flashes of mountainous day hikes you conquered. Years of preparation and outdoor experiences have made you the outdoors person you are today and with each portage travelled with ease, fishing spot scouted and site prepped for incoming weather, you begin to realize that your abilities are a gift.
The gift of the ability to understand outdoor adventure. A gift that should be shared and passed onto others in the same way it was passed onto you. As you think about this, you lament the days that passed and dread the long drive back to the city. The early mornings of the upcoming week consume you and you wish, with all your might, that you could spend one more moment out here. What if you could? What if by sharing your unique gift with others you could also find the change you’ve been seeking in your life? Maybe it’s time to begin a new outdoor journey as a Canadian tour guide, leading outdoor adventure tours.
Guide for Yourself with GuidEd
GuidEd offers a rare opportunity to take your passion for the outdoors to another level. Whether you are experienced in the art of fishing and know how to make one mean fire, or you know your way around the Canadian mountain ranges and have a knack for geology, there’s an experience waiting to be created by you.
GuidEd offers the opportunity for you to be paired as a guide with outdoor adventure lovers who are looking, not for just any adventure, but the one you have curated. Experiencing the outdoors with tour companies can be a ton of fun, but they often aren’t as tailored to the individual as they could be. Think back to the moments when you learned some of your most valuable skills. Was it in a large group setting with a tour bus, or did it come from specific interactions with someone who had the expertise you sought? The benefits of experiencing the outdoors through the eyes of an experienced guide are endless. You can share your unique skills with others to provide experiences that are both educational and unforgettable. This gives you the opportunity to instill a new love of the outdoors in others, and in turn to educate them about the importance of outdoor conservation and preservation.
