Svalbard, formerly known by the Dutch name Spitsbergen, is a Norwegian archipelago located in the Arctic Ocean. Svalbard lies north of mainland Europe, and is about midway between the North Pole and continental Norway. Its land area is 61 km2 (around 24 ml2), and is dominated by the island of Spitsbergen, constituting over half of the archipelago, followed by Nordaustlandet and Edgeoya. All settlements are situated on Spitsbergen, except a couple of meteorological outposts on Bjornoya and Hopen. In 2012, Svalbard had a population of 2,642 including 439 Russians and Ukrainian, 10 Polish and 322 other non-Norwegians. Longyearbyen is the administrative centre and largest settlement of Svalbard.

Administratively, the Svalbard archipelago is not a part of any Norwegian county. However, it forms an unincorporated region administered by a governor who is appointed by the government of Norway. Since 2002, the main settlement in Svalbard, Longyearbyen, has had its elected local government, similarly to mainland municipalities. Svalbard is the world's northernmost settlement with permanent civilian population. Other settlements located farther north are populated only by groups of rotating researchers.

The Svalbard archipelago has an Arctic climate, though with higher temperatures than other regions at the same latitude. Its flora take advantage of the midnight sun to compensate for polar nights. Svalbard is the breeding ground for plenty of seabirds, and also features reindeer, Arctic fox, polar bears, and certain marine mammals. 23 nature reserves and 7 national parks cover 2/3 of the archipelago, protecting the untouched, natural environment. Nearly 60% of Svalbard archipelago is covered with glaciers. The islands feature many fjords and mountains. No roads connect Svalbard's settlements. Snowmobiles, boats and aircraft serve inter-community transport. Longyear, Svalbard Airport, serves as archipelago's main gateway.

Jan Mayen and Svalbard are both assigned ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code SJ. These areas are administered by Norway, even though they are separated by over 500 nautical miles distance (600 miles/950 km) and have different administrative structures.
