Svalbard Archipelago

Land of ice and snow

Svalbarði is inextricably tied to the land and icebergs of Svalbard

It was the promise of adventure and an insight into an environmental extreme that spurred the origin of Svalbarði. The founder of Svalbarði was enchanted by Svalbard’s glaciers, the community’s affinity with its environment, and the ongoing scientific efforts to sustain the welfare of the arctic region.

More than just a headquarters, the Svalbard archipelago is a heritage, a nod to Mother Nature, and an inherent component of our luxurious drinking water. Although the Svalbard archipelago is of Norwegian sovereignty, it is also world apart and possesses an enigmatic aura that defines a character quite unlike any other place.

The Environment
One of the last true wildernesses, the Svalbard archipelago is located between 74° and 81°north latitude and 10° and 35° east, just 1000km from the North Pole. Approximately 60% of the region is covered by spectacular glaciers. Outnumbering humans, roughly 3,000 polar bears inhabit the arctic region, as well as marine animals, such as whales, walruses and dolphins.

Scientific Research
Scientific research is one of the most important activities in the region, with many countries utilising the advantageous location of the Svalbard archipelago to learn more about our planet. The local government, as well as the international community, is committed to researching global climate change from the island. Svalbard’s Global Seed Bank, which is supported by Svalbarði, works to protect the world’s food supplies from climate change for future generations. 

Svalbarði is an ultra-premium bottled water, obtained from icebergs in the sea around Svalbard. Svalbarði works hard to preserve the natural environment: we are certified Carbon Neutral, our Svalbarði ice is gathered from icebergs that will otherwise melt within a short period, and the company raises awareness for the cause of climate change through its various social media platforms.
