Picture a scene where hundreds of bergs, some thousands of years old, are floating along the sea in an eye-catching ‘parade’. Andrew Eames heads to Iceberg Alley.
So here’s a riddle for the well-traveled … What’s bigger than a multi-story car park, calves ‘growlers’, sinks ships, and weeps gently as it comes sashaying down a spectacular ‘alley’ that runs for over 100 miles?
The answer, of course, is an iceberg, and the catwalk in question is the so-called Iceberg Alley off the coast of the island of Newfoundland in Atlantic Canada. Here, on a productive day in the heart of the season, as many as 300 bergs can be found whispering along the shore at any one time.
