Experience Iceberg ViewingLearn More
Icebergs are so plentiful around these parts, we actually put them to good use. You can drink it straight, as in Berg water, or in spirits like Iceberg Vodka, Gin, and Rum. Don’t forget the popular Iceberg Beer.
Icebergs are not to be underestimated. In 1912, only 400 miles from our coast, an iceberg like these sank the infamous Titanic.

The map on IcebergFinder.com shows icebergs that were recently detected around Newfoundland and Labrador. Some icebergs have been detected by satellite and some have been reported by tourism operators. We cannot guarantee real-time accuracy of the map (icebergs move and melt!), so if you would like to confirm the presence of an iceberg, or if you would like to get more detailed information about a particular area, we suggest you contact the nearest Visitor Information Centre.Visit IcebergFinder.com
Discover Ways to Watch
Where to WatchIceberg Alley stretches from the coast of Labrador to the southeast coast of the island of Newfoundland. Some of the more popular places from shore, or from tour boats, are (from north to south): St. Lewis, Battle Harbour, Red Bay, Point Amour, St. Anthony, La Scie, Twillingate, Fogo Island, Change Islands, Bonavista, St. John's / Cape Spear, and Bay Bulls / Witless Bay. All of these locations are accessible by road. The first four, which are on the coast of southern Labrador, can be accessed by car ferry from the island of Newfoundland year round. The further north, the longer the iceberg season.
Time of YearThe icebergs come through Iceberg Alley from spring to early summer. As you move north, the season stretches a bit longer. April and May are the months when bergs are most plentiful, but they may be locked up in sea ice, so we suggest late May and early June for best viewing.
Ways to WatchThe best ways to watch icebergs are by boat tour, kayak, and from land. Many tourism operators around the province offer boat tours designed to show you the icebergs at their best, along with our visiting whales and numerous sea birds. You can also paddle yourself out to have a look, or stand on our amazing coastline and watch them sail by (although they don’t move that quickly).
Icebergs can be unpredictable, which makes them difficult to navigate around safely. When viewing icebergs from the water, it is recommended that you maintain a safe distance (D) – equal to the length of the iceberg (L), or twice its height (H), whichever is greater. Within this perimeter, there is a risk of falling ice, large waves, and submerged hazards. Safety should always be your first priority.
Discover Icebergs, Whales & Birds – The Triple Play!
We’re one of the few places in the world to receive simultaneous visits from whales, seabirds, and icebergs. As the whales and birds migrate north and the icebergs sail south, there’s a chance to experience all three of these wonderful sights in one trip. Like so much in nature, there are many factors that vary from year to year, but with luck you’ll witness this exciting spectacle.
