Why I feel alive in the mountains
In the mountains, Nicky feels a deep connection with the Earth and a sense of being part of something greater than herself. The towering peaks, vast landscapes, and ever-changing weather patterns remind her of the grandeur and unpredictability of the natural world, filling her with a sense of awe and wonder.
Furthermore, the mountains provide Nicky with endless opportunities for exploration and personal growth. As a mountain guide, she has the privilege of sharing her knowledge and expertise with others, helping them navigate the challenges and rewards of mountain expeditions. This sense of purpose and the ability to empower others adds an extra layer of fulfillment to her experiences in the mountains.

The physical exertion required to ascend steep slopes, endure harsh weather conditions, and overcome personal limitations ignites a sense of vitality and resilience within her. The mountains push her to her limits, both physically and mentally, allowing her to discover new strengths and capabilities.
Ultimately, the mountains provide Nicky with a sense of clarity, perspective, and inner peace. Surrounded by the majesty of nature, she can disconnect from the noise and distractions of modern life and reconnect with her true self. The mountains offer her a space for reflection, introspection, and personal transformation, making her feel truly alive.
Next big adventure
Our next big adventure is taking us to the breathtaking region of Patagonia. In November, we’ll be spending a month in this mountain paradise, and I simply can’t contain my excitement. Our plans for now include embarking on the famous O trek, an incredible 8-day trekking experience in the Torres del Paine area. We’ll be camping during this trek, immersing ourselves in the beauty of nature. In addition to that, we’re also looking forward to exploring El Chalten, where we have our sights set on conquering the challenging Huemul circuit. And from there, we’re even planning a thrilling glacier expedition. This time, I won’t be alone on this adventure. I’ll be accompanied by my boyfriend Stefan and our friend Andy.

They seek inspiration, guidance, and sometimes harbor a slight apprehension about venturing into the mountains alone due to either fear or a lack of companions. It’s worth noting that 75% of Nicky’s followers are female.
Do you want to get to know Nicky?
Nicky was accompanied by the Dutch outdoor platform ‘in de bergen’ for two days, during which they created a captivating mini documentary showcasing her life in the mountains. This docu is in Dutch.
Brands I worked for before
We are a match if:
Your brand should align with Nicky’s niche of mountain hiking and outdoor adventure. You should offer products or services that cater to the needs and interests of outdoor enthusiasts.
Freedom is vital to me, which is why I choose to live in the mountains, haha! I don’t thrive under strict orders, so it’s important for us to agree on the desired “outcome” beforehand. For instance, we can establish that you will receive 1 reel, 10 stories, and 20 photos. Of course, you can provide guidelines, but allowing me the freedom to express my creativity is crucial.
Since 75% of Nicky’s followers are female, a brand that promotes female empowerment and inclusivity would resonate well. This could involve featuring female adventurers, sharing stories of women overcoming challenges in the outdoors, or promoting initiatives that empower women in outdoor activities.
