Helen Marsden

Helen Marsden

Me in 3 – driven | inquisitive | Yorkshire tea drinker!

Place to Play – Shetland and the Outer Hebrides. They are great places to explore by kayak, bike and on foot.

Not a lot of people know this – I have been fortunate to have been to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands twice……and I’d love to go back a third time!

Mini Bio – I was brought up in Yorkshire, and thanks to outdoorsy parents enjoyed having adventures on foot, by kayak and under sail all around the British Isles.

Like many guides, I turned to the outdoors after a first career elsewhere. I did a graduate study in the USA and returned to the UK to follow a career in the chemical industry. To keep my sanity(!), I spent all my spare time mountaineering, kayaking and sailing, plus lots of travelling. For the last 6 years I have enjoyed meeting new people of all ages and sharing my outdoor passions and knowledge with them.
