Svalbard - An Arctic Discovery

Svalbard, a part of Norway, is an archipelago in the Arctic Ocean, formerly Spitsbergen, between Norway and the North Pole.

Map of Svalbard

Early Norwegian stories mentioned Svalbard, and the islands were rediscovered by a Dutch expedition under the navigator Willem Barents in 1596.

The first settlement was founded when the Norwegians started mining coal in the region during the 1890s and Norway's claim to the islands was formally recognised in 1920.

The islands of Svalbard were used for several polar expeditions, including that of Sir William Parry in 1827, Fridtjof Nansen in 1893, and Roald Amundsen and Umberto Nobile in 1926.

Main Svalbard Islands

The main islands of Svalbard are Spitsbergen, Nordaustlandet, Barentsoya, Edgeoya, Kong Karls Land, Prins Karls Forland, and Bjornoya.
