  • Are known for your ability to facilitate fun while balancing superior organizational skills.
  • Are a resourceful, flexible, team-player with a high level of integrity.
  • Have outstanding communication skills and are comfortable addressing a group.
  • Demonstrate an exuberant zest for life balanced by refined professionalism.
  • Are energetic and function well without much down time.
  • Have an inherent curiosity with interest in history, geology, and/or the natural world.
  • Have an excellent sense of direction and map-reading skills.

  • Are a competent road cyclist who can ride comfortably at 15-18 mph for 2-3 hours at a time.
  • Have basic bike mechanical ability such as changing a tire, adjusting brakes and derailleurs.
  • Are fit enough to repeatedly carry 30-50 lb luggage, often up stairs.
  • Are able to work a minimum of five week-long trips during 5-12 weeks between June 12 and November 1.

Sojourn is a smaller, more personalized company whose success depends upon building and maintaining relationships with our guests. As a Sojourn guide, you and your co-leader will spend the tour engaging our guests and ensuring their safety and enjoyment. You will rise early each morning to attend to behind the scenes details and preparation, and end each day late in the evening. You will need to be a jack of all trades (see above) and will serve as the face of the company while in the field. While the job is extremely fun for the right individual, it requires long hours on the job – not necessarily in the saddle of your bike. For the right person, the job might just be the best one you will ever have.

Wage & Benefits

  • Per tour wage
  • Extensive industry benefits.

Apply by sending us the following:

  • A resume and introductory cover letter.
  • A self-assessment of why you are interested and why you would be a great fit for Sojourn.
  • A copy of your motor vehicle operator’s license.
  • Two to three letters of reference pertaining directly to this position and including contact details.
  • Review of applications to begin January 25, 2017
