Adventure Jobs Abroad

Outdoor activity instructor jobs

Who says working has to be boring? We all travel to find excitement, and by taking adventure jobs abroad you’ll get paid for the pleasure, while also helping like-minded travellers have the experience of a lifetime.

There is a huge range of adventure jobs available all over the world, most casting you as an activity instructor. You might take people kayaking through the rainforest in Costa Rica, skydiving in New Zealand, or zorbing wherever zorbing is a thing people do. Activity instructor jobs are fun, pay well, let you experience another country, and give you unlimited access to whatever white knuckle craziness you’re peddling. There’s no way your friends back home won’t be jealous.

If you’re interested in outdoor adventure jobs, whether just for a summer or for your whole gap year, have a look at the opportunities below to find one that suits you. Any job after this will feel like a walk in the park.
