Hundreds have flocked to photograph the giant ice mountain dwarfing the tiny coastal town of Ferryland
FORGET plane spotting, the latest craze in Canada is iceberg spotting.
A small town in the Newfoundland area has become overrun with tourists who have flocked to the area to witness a giant iceberg make its way along the coastline.
The giant ice mountain is the first iceberg of the season, making the route along a strip of water between Newfoundland and Labrador on the East Coast that is nicknamed “iceberg alley”.
Typically, the large blocks of ice drift down from the arctic every spring and pass the small town of Ferryland at a slow pace.

But this iceberg has caused some fuss because it appears to have become grounded.
The town’s mayor told CTV News: “It’s a huge iceberg and it’s in so close that people can get a good photograph of it.
“It’s the biggest one I ever seen around here.”
The Southern Shore highway, which leads to the sleepy town, had cars stacked up with both professional and amateur photographers keen to take a snap.
According to experts, there have been more icebergs than usually passing along the North Atlantic shipping lanes because of strong counter-clockwise winds drawing them south.
