It’s a pretty amazing experience to see a massive chuck of ice just bobbing away in the ocean, particularly when said iceberg is made from glacial ice more than 10,000 years old!
We were lucky enough to see icebergs in a couple of different places thanks to my eagle-eyed friend, Katie. (If you are travelling through Newfoundland and do not happen to have a friend with superhuman eyesight, you can also locate icebergs with the Iceberg Finder.)
ICEBERG NUMBER 1: Quidi Vidi Cove, St John’s (50 meters from shore!)
ICEBERG NUMBER 2: Pouch Cove
ICEBERG NUMBER 3, 4, 5, 6 etc etc: Between Terra Nova and Deer Lake
Seeing all these icebergs en route, you can imagine our excitement when we finally got to Twillingate, the self-proclaimed iceberg capital of Newfoundland. Here’s what we saw there……….
Yep, that’s right: nothing! Luckily Twillingate redeemed itself in other ways. More on that in a later blog.
