See Pictures Of This Massive Iceberg Floating Past A Canadian Town
A gigantic iceberg floating by our windows isn’t the first sign of spring for most of us. But the 500 or so residents of Ferryland, Canada are used to seeing these big blocks of ice slowly slide by them. This year, though, one of the icebergs decided to stick around a while. Now, the iceberg has become quite the talk of the town—and beyond.
Iceberg Kicks Off Early Tourist Season
Not only is it unusual to see an iceberg floating so close to land, it’s unusual to see one of its size. According to the Canadian Ice Service, as reported by CNN, it measures between 150-240 feet tall and between 400-670 feet long.
Even tradition-weary residents find this sight surprising. And many people are taking the opportunity to capture what looks like a giant cruise ship made of ice in pictures.

Word quickly spread and now tourists are rushing to the Newfoundland town to see the towering ice chunk. Local news website VOCM reports traffic has been bumper to bumper due to visitors clamoring to see the iceberg.
