Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Correct, it is indeed Bear Island, or "Bjørnøya" - I liked reading Alistair MacLean novels in years past and one of the was "Bear Island" with Perleporten featured in it. I missed the image in your post somehow, otherwise I would have handed over the reins earlier.

p.s. I checked the Wiki page and see you were correct about the Svalbard archipelago as well, I thought that Bear Island didn't belong to it.
