The Svalbard archipelago (formerly Spitsberg for the larger island) is an archipelago located in the Arctic Glacial Ocean, north of the European continent, which is part of the Kingdom of Norway. It consists of a group of islands that range from 74º to 81º north and from 10º to 35º east; they form the northernmost part of Norway. Only three of the islands are inhabited: Spitsbergen, Bjørnøya and Hopen.
