About Guide Network
Guide Network is the previously impossible link between the three pillars of the tourism industry: employers, certified adventure professionals, and training providers!
Like all great inventions, Guide Network was born out of necessity and the result is an unparalleled level of access and interconnection.
Before Guide Network, there was a deep chasm of disconnect. But now, through our Interactive Employer/ Job Map and world-first public-to-employers Guide Profile Library, guides will be able to discover and learn about employers that they may otherwise not have known about, and businesses will enjoy a previously unimaginable level of access to certified adventure professionals.
But our support doesn’t stop at introductions. Our comprehensive Guide and Employer Dashboards ensure an expedient application process for both guides and employers. Limiting the amount of time users spend behind computer screens, and maximizing the time spent in the outdoors.
From this point onward, from dog sledding to wildlife tours and backcountry snowboarding, if it is guiding or instructing it’s on Guide Network!
