Marcel Schütz Guide

Marcel Schütz was born and raised in Switzerland and has always had a passion for nature, landscapes and photography. He made his first acquaintance with the northern polar region in 2008, when he went on a private excursion to Svalbard at the age of 18.

The Arctic expanses and its wildlife enchanted him so much that he travelled back to the far north four times until he finally emigrated to Svalbard in 2010.

For more than 15 years now, he looks back on an adventurous time in which he led many tours as an expedition leader and guide in tourism and research. He is the former founder, owner and managing director of Spitzbergen Reisen AS and successfully sold his shares in the company in 2022. Since the same year, he has owned Svalbard Photography AS, focusing on professional nature photography and photography-trips. In 2021, he opened the Swiss Consulate in Longyearbyen together with the Swiss Ambassador of Norway and Iceland, Bernard Jaggy, where he is Honorary Consul.
