Newfoundland town has a prime view of “Iceberg Alley” – so called because from spring to September, icebergs regularly break off in the Arctic and float down past the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Over 600 have previously floated into the North Atlantic this year, compared to a total of 687 over the whole season. Experts believe that this year’s plentiful crop is down to strong counter-clockwise winds, as well as global warming.

Although most of the icebergs are just passing down the coast, Ferryland’s new visitor appears to be stuck, mayor Adrian Kavanagh told The Canadian Press.

And while the coast along with it was packed over the weekend, if, as predicted, it sticks around, the number of visitors is expected to grow.
