Atividades & Turnos

As a trekking guide, you will be guiding (and soon leading) groups of people on our treks. This entails much more than just showing people the way up a volcano. You are there to make sure the trek runs smoothly, safely, and your group is fed, watered and content. This is not always an easy task. You will also develop an awareness of the people, culture, history, and ecology of the areas through which we trek to in-turn share this knowledge with your group of trekkers (and newer guides).

Trekking days can make up anywhere between 3 – 6 days of your week, all depending on the schedule and number of guides that are here at any given time.

Guiding people on adventurous treks is just part of the job. Some of your week will be spent in the Quetzaltrekkers office, doing behind-the-scenes tasks to keep the whole operation running.
