Explorer. Creator. Influencer.

About Me

Hi! I’m a Helsinki-based Adventurer, Outdoor Writer and Fisherwoman. Professional at writing stories. Photographer and Explorer through Wilder Mind Media. Most likely gone hiking. A world trapped in a person. Dreamer. Doer.

I got the best job to escape from the office: I spend my working and social life mostly outdoors. I run my own company, Wilder Mind Media, in the outdoor and travel industry, helping Finnish clients to market their products and services through successful marketing strategies, inspirational contents and visually strong photographs.

On the other hand, I am a public speaker: inspiring and giving lectures for the fellow outdoor writers and companies about inspirational and attractive travel writing, nature photography and SEO lectures/workshops, which is one of the most important parts of my job while creating successful stories and campaigns that will rank in Google. In total, I’ve been working 8 years as SEO Consultant with both Finnish and International clients through different agencies and through my own company.

National Geographic has chosen my travel photo for Daily Dozen on 19/9/17, and my travel photos have also been featured through @discovery.hd, @ourcamplife, @ourfinland & VisitFinland, and via many other outdoor brands around the globe. I’ve done several IG take-overs and blog articles for @feelfinnair & Finnair’s blog while travelling to their destinations.

n addition, I am the founder of #SUOMIRETKI, that is an Instagrammed ode to Finland. More than 140 000 #suomiretki-photos have been shared on Instagram since the beginning (02/2014). In the meantime I’ll represent as an Ambassador for Nature Days that is celebrating the 100th anniversary of Finland’s independence. At the moment I am producing and writing a series of travel articles for Matkustusturvallisuus / Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland.

If you’d like meet up and work together, send me an email at hi@marinellahimari.fi or send me a message via LinkedIn. Also, I’m always available for a cup of good coffee!
