About That Outdoor Job

21-04-2022 • 27 mins

Welcome to ⟪About that outdoor job⟫ podcast where host Charlaine Jannerfeldt has conversations with those who’ve made the outdoors their living, so you can too. We’ll share their insights, observations, tips and why not a few of their best adventure stories.

In this episode she talks with Sophie Nolan, Wilderness Guide and founder of Sidetracked Adventures. She shares with us how the call of the wild influenced her decision to leave her city job and head to the mountains; how a crazy adventure in Finland led her to her passion job; and why she chose to start her own wilderness guiding company. She candidly speaks not only about the upsides of her profession but what the challenges are on a day-to-day basis and has some great advice for anyone considering wilderness guiding.
