As the iceberg turned canadian town into a tourist Mecca
A small town on the canadian island of Newfoundland has suddenly become a tourist attraction and all its beautiful — one of the first in this season — the iceberg.
Canadian broadcaster CBC News reported that on Easter weekend the track leading to the town of Ferryland was crowded with machines: photographers — professionals and Amateurs — went to take a picture of the floating ice mountain.
The area off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador popularly known under the name alley of icebergs due to the huge number of ice boulders each spring drifting from the Arctic.
Often, these icebergs are clamped by sea ice, it usually lasts until late spring or early summer, but it seems that this iceberg sat on the ground and could stay in one place, suggested mayor Adrian Kavanagh in an interview with The Canadian Press.
This rather large iceberg “settled” near the coast, providing a wonderful opportunity for photographing, said the mayor.
A large part of the iceberg is usually hidden under water, so they often run aground when approaching the shore.
Such a beautiful iceberg near the coast — good news for tour operators, said one of the owners of the radio station CBC Radio.
“Iceberg alley” is already the beginning of the high season. Reported hundreds of drifting icebergs in the Atlantic ocean — much more than usual for this time of year.
