Orne Island is a small island close to Rongé Island (half a mile Northeast). You won't find Orne Island on most maps. Orne Island is relatively flat with only a thin snow cover. There are a few penguin colonies. From any place on the island, you have nice views on Brabant Island, Anvers Island, Rongé Island and the Antarctic peninsula.
