It is shaping up to be a bump iceberg season here in Newfoundland and Labrador, with over 600 bergs currently off the coast.
Hop aboard and sail past towering icebergs made from ancient, densely-packed ice on our Award Winning Boat Tour. Listen as they flounder, calve and roll right before your very eyes. Every Iceberg is unique, calving off glaciers into pinnacle, wedge and tabular shapes. Our favourite “bergs” are the talk of the world. You may even get to sample a bergy bit—the most pristine water on earth, frozen 10,000 years ago.
Most of the icebergs that make there way to the waters of Newfoundland and Labrador break off the glaciers in western Greenland. These glacial giants can be 10-15,000 years old. Approximately 10,000 icebergs break off each year, however only 400-800 make it to the waters off Newfoundland and Labrador. Note there are no guarantees that there will be icebergs every year. It is important to check for local updates. Also noteworthy is that these icebergs are always on the move.
