their guides know Svalbard.. like their backyard
Backyard Svalbard AS was created in 2019 by a team of passionate Norwegian skiers, enthralled by Arctic landscapes. Their certified guides have extensive experience leading ski expeditions beyond the northernmost sections of Norway, and they’ll do their best to provide you with an unforgettable, authentic Svalbard experience.
With two Backyard Svalbard guides on board, we will be flexible and be able to adapt to the group’s ambitions and experience level.
