Elida grew up among steep mountains in a small fjord on the westcoast of Norway. At age 12 she came to Svalbard for the first time with her family and have kept coming back ever since. Elida graduated from the Arctic Nature Guide School on Svalbard. She has a great passion for nature, wildlife and mountains, and she tries to spend as much time as she can out in nature. This has led to many good trips, including a whole season out in the wilderness of Alaska.
