My name is Ellen. I was born in Ghent in 1991, but the countries in the north have stolen my heart.
I have lived in the Westfjords of Iceland for a while, a place I still consider my second home. In July 2020 I moved to the most beautiful part of Norway, close to Norway's West Cape.
By obtaining a background in Geology and Marine Biology, I transformed my born affection for all things nature into a way of life.
I'm a passionate amateur photographer and writer, as portrayed on this website.
I'm always open to collaborations on a freelance basis.
Now and then, I'm working as a guide, both as
a whale watching guide and as a travel guide.
Find me at:
I own a webshop in which I sell amazing wellness- and beautyproducts made from the ocean. All made in Northern Europe, all made with love.
As an aspiring artist, I sell some ocean inspired artwork too.

I created a fairytale for an Icelandic Chocolate company:
Thin Air Guides is putting together an amazing guide for the Westfjords of Iceland
and I got to be a part of that creation. Find a preview here!
