PEAK DMC creates sustainable, experience-rich travel products across five continents in more than 90 countries worldwide, making us the world’s leading global adventure operator.
Our destinations run the gamut from the world’s biggest metropolises to the most remote mountain villages, from deserts to rainforests and everything in between. We take travellers to those iconic sites such as Machu Picchu, Angkor Wat and the Pyramids of Giza; but we can also complement those bucket-list items with unexpected local encounters and off-the-beaten-track highlights.
We are part of the Intrepid Group, the world’s largest adventure travel company which is still independently owned by the original founders, who established the company over 30 years ago. Intrepid is also the world’s largest “B Corp” registered company in the travel sector, which means it meets the highest standards of social and environmental performance and is committed to responsible travel practices across all parts of the travel chain.
Our Japan office launched in August 2017 in the historical capital of Kyoto. Since then we have been working on providing unique experiences to all travellers, whether they are looking for cities full of bright lights and neon and Hello Kitty vending machines or picture-perfect landscapes and peaceful temples.
Our local Japan team creates itineraries that suit just about any interest our clients may have. For those looking for cultural immersion there is sumo wrestling or overnight stays in Buddhist monasteries. For food lovers there are private classes with soba masters, visits to sake breweries or local fresh food markets. For outdoor lovers, there is the chance to explore villages and cities on a cycling tour, trek through the mystical forests of Kumano Kodo or Yakushima, or journey through Hokkaido’s wintry wonderland
Our global team at PEAK DMC are the heart of our business. We are truly passionate about sharing our expert knowledge of our destinations. Our training programs for staff, group leaders and crew set a benchmark within the industry. We embrace diversity and provide opportunities for our people to grow, develop and be rewarded.
Some of our current initiatives on ‘building world class talent’ include:
• Doubling our number of female Leaders around the world by 2020.
• Supporting internal job opportunities by prioritizing our own people as candidates including providing a career pathway for group leaders who want to grow within the company.
• Offering professional development training programs, heavily discounted travel on Intrepid Group trips, additional leave for educational and volunteering opportunities.
From group leaders and crew through to travel-related roles and specialist functions we are always on the lookout for new people who share our energy and passion for sharing their part of the world with our travellers. By joining PEAK DMC, no matter where you are based, you also become part of a global organization and industry leader and can form connections and share learnings with colleagues the world over.
As we steadily expand our office in Japan, we are looking for enthusiastic people with a strong passion for travel in Japan and who enjoy the hands-on nature of working on multiple projects in a friendly and flexible small-team environment. Our team is bilingual, and a nice mix of both Japanese and foreign staff working across our core functional areas of Contracting, Reservations, Operations, External Sales and Finance/HR.
