Ice berg Alley
The best place to see icebergs is in Newfoundland and Labrador. These 10,000 year old giants arrive in spring and early summer and are readily seen along our coast. Thousands of these icebergs, calved from the glaciers of Greenland, follow the Labrador Current south to our shores in varying numbers every year. It is an unforgetable experience to see one of these frozen sculptures up close on a warm summers day.
