Most of our guides have been with us for years (some more than 20!) and they truly set the standard for river experience and knowledge. We are the top of the food chain, so we are able to attract the best and most suitable guides.
All are licensed raft guides and certified canoe instructors in accordance with each jurisdiction. Our whitewater rafting and canoe guides are certified in wilderness first aid and swiftwater rescue, and we employ a demanding in-house training and mentorship program. We consider ourselves extremely fortunate to be able to handpick our team. There’s a large demand for guides to work on our northern rivers and our company attracts the very best.
We employ 50 guides who typically head one to five trips for us per year and are considered leaders in the field of wilderness guiding. Hard working, well-trained, mature, knowledgeable, and most importantly, fun to be with, our guides put their heart and soul into every trip.
What do these folks do when not guiding on northern rivers? Their list of occupations is as long as our list of guides. Some will guide in the southern hemisphere, some are alpine and ski guides, others are professors, teachers, carpenters, dentists, paramedics, researchers, dog mushers, log home builders, school principles or ski patrollers. They bring a lifetime of diverse wilderness experience to your expedition.
