Home Ports Norway Trygghamna


Trygghamna is a small settlement located in Svalbard and Jan Mayen, a region in the Arctic Ocean. It is situated on the western side of the Spitsbergen archipelago, which is part of Norway. The settlement is the northernmost permanent human settlement in the world, located at 78°50'N 19°00'E.

The settlement was founded in 1604 by Dutch whalers and was originally known as "De Nederlandsche Whaling Company". It was used as a base for whaling activities in the region until the early 20th century. In the early 1900s, the settlement was abandoned and it was not until the early 1980s that it was re-inhabited.

Today, Trygghamna is a small fishing village, with a population of around 100 people. It is home to a number of small businesses, including a fish processing plant, a general store, and a post office. The settlement is also the site of the world's northernmost weather station.

In terms of its historical significance, Trygghamna is best known for its role in the Svalbard Treaty of 1920. The treaty, which was signed by Norway, the United Kingdom, Denmark, France, Italy, and Japan, granted Norway sovereignty over the archipelago and established the Svalbard Global Seed Vault. The treaty also granted Norway exclusive rights to the whaling industry in the region, which had been a major source of income for the people of Trygghamna.

Today, Trygghamna is an important part of the Svalbard and Jan Mayen region, providing a unique insight into the history and culture of the area. The settlement is a popular destination for tourists, who come to experience the natural beauty of the region and to learn about the unique history of the settlement.
