How to Find Icebergs in Canada

How to find icebergsHere’s a brilliant marketing campaign from a tourism board. Newfoundland & Labrador is the easternmost province in Canada, located at the northeastern corner of North America. It’s known as one of the top locations in the world for iceberg-viewing and plays host to thousands of glacial giants most years.

Like maple trees and leaf-peeping, these natural Arctic wonders attract iceberg-chasers to the Atlantic Canadian province from spring to early summer. That’s why Newfoundland & Labrador Tourism has launched an updated version of IcebergFinder.com. Sadly I’ve never been to the province, but I’ve flown over it many times and been amazed by the size of the icebergs even from 36,000 feet. It’s no wonder why they call it “Iceberg Alley.”

IcebergFinder.com (May to August) uses satellite technology and visual sightings from tourism operators to provide real-time updates. New this year, travelers can now upload photos of these frozen giants to the IcebergFinder map, providing more instantaneous visuals and prime viewing locations using the GPS data stored in the travelers’s photos. In addition, the iceberg map will connect travelers to tourism operators nearby for further help with their trip planning experience. I had trouble viewing it in Internet Explorer but in Chrome and Safari it worked.
