With hundreds of applicants from around the globe vying for the coveted position, the company seeks individuals with a deep love for nature, an insatiable thirst for exploration, and a knack for capturing unforgettable moments on social media.

“People who are passionate about the outdoors, love to explore new places, and aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty,” said Moraine Lake Bus Company owner Jesse Kitteridge in a news release.

The chosen candidates will have the enviable task of hiking every trail, paddling every lake, and camping beneath the stars in the Moraine Lake region from June 15 to August 15. 

The goal is to inspire fellow Canadians to follow in their footsteps. The job is all about promoting the beauty of Banff and the Canadian Rockies.

In addition to the thrill of exploration, the successful applicants will enjoy a salary of $8,000 and possibly a $2,000 bonus. 

As if that weren’t enticing enough, the company also offers complimentary accommodation in Banff for their employment.

All applicants must submit a 60-second video and 500-word or less introduction about why they stand out.

“While everybody’s video is different, it’s amazing that the unifying theme from all the videos is that they all agree Banff National Park, Alberta, the Canadian Rockies is the best place in the world, and there’s no place they’d rather be this summer,” reflected Kitteridge.

The chosen adventurers will embark on a journey of a lifetime, forging memories that will last a lifetime and inspiring others to seek their own adventures in the great outdoors.

It will be exciting to see who was chosen as the final candidate.
