Longyearbyen is the largest community in Svalbard, with population of around 1100. Longyearbyen port is located in Advent fjord, half way along the south side of Isfjorden, on the Spitsbergen island's west coast. This is former coal-mining settlement and currently the biggest scientific research center in the Arctic. There are over 100 scientists arriving here each summer.

In Longyearbyen cruise ship passengers will find bank, post office, library, conference facilities, travel agencies, restaurants, cafes, a hospital, tourist information office, miners' bath, a supermarket, general stores, and even the world's northernmost newspaper - Svalbardposten". Other tourist attractions are Gallery, Svalbard Museum, cruise port, airport, friendly people, dramatic scenery.

Svalbard Archipelago has all three islands - Spitsbergen (largest), Nordaustlandet and Edgeoya. It is located north of the Arctic Circle, about midway between mainland Europe (Norway) and the North Pole. Svalbard cruises are among the Norway's most popular ship travel destinations - together with Norwegian Fjords (along the country's coastline). In Svalbard, tourism have become an important industry, heavily supported (popularized) by "University Centre in Svalbard" and "Svalbard Global Seed Vault".

Svalbard islands were first used as whaling bases (17th and 18th centuries), then were abandoned. At the beginning of the 20th century started coal mining operations, and several permanent settlements were established. In 1925, Svalbard was officially incorporated into the Kingdom of Norway. Today, Norway's Store Norske and Russia's Arktikugol are the only mining companies there. Instead of roads, the only transportation between the settlements is via aircrafts, boats and snowmobiles. Svalbard Airport (at Longyearbyen) serves as main gateway.

The list of Svalbard settlements (all located on the Spitsbergen island) include Longyearbyen (main and largest), Barentsburg (Russian mining community), Ny-Ålesund (research station) and Sveagruva (aka Svea, Norwegian mining community). Svalbard is the world's northernmost settlement with a permanent civilian population. There are other settlements farther north, but they are all populated by rotating groups of researchers.
