Rhiannon has been working as a guide, leading expeditions all over the world. With a degree in Outdoor Leadership coupled with her qualifications as a Mountain Leader, Caving Guide and Climbing Instructor, her work usually took her to warmer climates like Africa and South America.
On visiting Svalbard for the fist time in 2013 she knew she had to return. She then completed the year long Arctic Nature Guide training and certification here on Svalbard. Since then she hasn’t looked back, completing a Master’s in Social Anthropology based here on the unique culture of Svalbard, she has settled in for the long haul. You can usually find her enjoying her time working with the huskies, exploring a glacier or skiing happily across this incredible landscape with her beloved dog Alfa.
