At Country Walkers we pride ourselves on our expert, local guides and recognize that an amazing guide makes an unforgettable trip! We welcome applications for new guides but ask that you first review the section below titled What we look for in a potential Guide. We receive hundreds of applications every year and will only consider those meeting the required criteria.

Please send these via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or standard mail (Country Walkers, 426 Industrial Avenue, Suite 120, Williston, Vermont 05495 USA).

We will confirm receipt and then be in touch if opportunities arise which match your experience.
