Land Based Adventure Activities

If you are not keen on getting your feet wet, you are probably looking for a job or training course in an activity such as rock climbing, mountaineering, or perhaps mountain biking. There are dozens more niche activities like quad-biking, orienteering and archery, but these either tend to form part of what it classed as 'multi activity' instructing, or else the demand for people to instruct is minimal. We do occasionally have vacancies for less mainstream sports, but people who like to cling to the rock face, or who enjoy blasting along singletrack are most likely to find what they want on this page.
