I tried the above, but I get this following errror:

-8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
error: (keyboard-layout "us" "no" #:options (quote ("grp:switch"))): invalid 
field specifier
-8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Well, this comma syntax is precisely what I am trying to use. Note that
the "us,no" in my config refers to the list of US layout and NO layout,
not a NO variant of the US layout (I don't think there is such a
variant). The expected result of my keyboard-layout config is that I
have US layout by default, and when I hold down the right alt key I get
the NO layout.

A similar configuration is shown in the examples under the Keyboard
Layout section in the Guix manual. 

-8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
;; Arabic layout with "Alt-Shift" to switch to US layout.
(keyboard-layout "ar,us" #:options '("grp:alt_shift_toggle"))
-8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
