Ellen Rye


Ellen is from Sweden; she loves the outdoors and loves making people happy and so she always knew that she wanted to be a guide. She had had been working above the polar circle in Sweden for 3 years, guiding iceclimbing, skiing and snowshoeing tours in Abisko, hiking tours at Kebnekaise Sweden's highest mountain and snowmobile tours at the ice hotel in Jukkasjarvi, as well as preparing young people for summer hikes, before deciding to give Iceland a try in 2017. She says that her hobbies are pretty similar to her work, with some added trail running, biking, swimming and yoga in the mix too, and on her bucket list is Svalbard.
