Five Ways to Experience Icebergs in Newfoundland and Labrador
Around here, icebergs come in all shapes and sizes, travelling along Iceberg Alley to fill the bay, or your glass. Track these 10,000-year-old visitors with IcebergFinder.com, and get yourself a front row seat.
1) By Sea
Icebergs migrate south just as whales and seabirds head north. If you're really lucky, you'll meet somewhere in the middle. Out here, this is what passes for gridlock. See them with one of our experienced operators on a boat tour, or in a kayak.
2) By Land
To spot an iceberg around here, you don't necessarily have to go out onto the water. Stroll along the coast, or sit by the shore and have a picnic. Sometimes all you have to do is step out of your car.
3) Bergy Bits
You can find these bergy bits sitting on our beaches, in plain view, just waiting to be picked up. A chilly, but short-lived memento of your visit, they’re an excellent way to keep your drinks cool. Don't forget your mittens.
4) In a Stiff Drink
Icebergs are so plentiful in these parts, we actually put them to good use. Try a beer made with 10,000-year-old glacial ice, or pick up a bottle of locally made Iceberg spirits.

5) Iceberg-Inspired Art
You can't take an iceberg home with you, so why not bring home a piece of iceberg art instead? It's easier to hang on your walls and chances are, it won't melt in the summer.
