Svalbard is one of Europe's last great wildernesses, inhabited by more polar bears than people. It is located in the Arctic Ocean between 74°and 81°north latitude, 1000 kilometers from the North Pole. The archipelago is 60% covered by glaciers.


Svalbarði is harvested from icebergs freshly calved off glaciers in the remote fjords surrounding the archipelago. This pristine ice, locked up for millennia and fresh as the day it fell as snow, is captured during its brief few months of life before it melts forever.


Obtaining the water requires an arctic expedition. A search of up to a week at sea is conducted to find the right ice in sufficiently safe conditions. Individual iceberg pieces are carefully selected for the right properties, then manually lifted from the water by a specially equipped vessel. The ice is then brought back to the arctic outpost of Longyearbyen where it is melted and bottled.
