Iceberg Alley - Newfoundland

Holiday Ref: 16529

When it comes to viewing icebergs, this is one of the best places in the world. On a sunny day, these 10,000-year-old glacial giants are visible from many points along the northern and eastern coasts. They come in every shape and size, with colours from snow-white to deepest aquamarine. Despite their arrival from the Arctic every spring, our awe of them remains new, year after year.  Cap off your visit with a few days in St. John’s; experience the food, breweries, music and local entertainment.  An all-round amazing experience.
