Longyearbyen es el mayor asentamiento de las islas Svalbard, situadas en el Océano Glacial Ártico y pertenecientes a Noruega. Su población es de unos 1.600 habitantes. Es el lugar de residencia del Gobernador de Svalbard.
El asentamiento fue fundado en 1906 por John Munroe Longyear, principal propietario de la Compañía Ártica de Carbón de Boston (Arctic Coal Company of Boston). Fue destruido por los alemanes en 1943, durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, y reconstruido tras la finalización del conflicto. Es una ciudad ártica en la que la actividad minera ha estado siempre presente. Su vegetación es polar en invierno y de tundra en verano.
