An archipelago ( ), sometimes called an island group or island chain, is a chain, cluster or collection of islands. The word archipelago is derived from the Greek ἄρχι- – arkhi- ("chief") and πέλαγος – pélagos ("sea") through the Italian arcipelago. In Italian, possibly following a tradition of antiquity, the Arcipelago (from medieval Greek *ἀρχιπέλαγος and Latin archipelagus) was the proper name for the Aegean Sea and, later, usage shifted to refer to the Aegean Islands (since the sea is remarkable for its large number of islands). It is now used to refer to any island group or, sometimes, to a sea containing a small number of scattered islands.

Een archipel of eilandengroep is een landvorm die bestaat uit een ketting of cluster van eilanden. Archipels bestaan meestal in de open zee. Archipels zijn vaak vulkanische eilanden, die ontstaan langs oceanische ruggen of vulkanische hotspots. Een voorbeeld van een archipel ontstaan door een hotspot is Hawaï, een langgerekte archipel bestaande uit honderden eilanden en eilandjes.

Un archipel est un ensemble d'îles relativement proches les unes des autres. La proximité se double le plus souvent d'une origine géologique commune, en général volcanique.
