In 2012, Outside Magazine reviews the best places to work nationwide, and land travel agency Adventure Life Travel of Missoula, Montana, appears high on the list. The 18 current employers of the company work out of a renovated home decorated with staff members in exotic places in the world. Among the photos are staff members in the legendary Machu Picchu and the Patagonia glacier, as well as a photo of an employee kneeling next to a giant tortoise.
This sense of adventure and worldliness allows the Adventure Life travel company to create an environment that connects each one of its employees to one another. However, the job is not always glamorous, and employees are required to perform a great deal of desk work. Spending time in front of a computer or talking on the phone may be not sound adventurous, but employees are rewarded with the ability to visit exotic destinations, primarily in Latin America. In order to become knowledgeable about planned trips, staff members get a chance to travel abroad and experience a country’s sites and culture.
