For anyone looking to do a bit of close-up iceberg spotting, then Canada is the place to be right now. A small village on the East Coast has become very popular with tourists recently thanks to a close visit from a giant floating iceberg. The 150ft iceberg can be seen passing Ferryland along what's known as "Iceberg Alley", a channel of coastal waters that acts as a highway for these Arctic invaders. Usually the icebergs aren't quite as large as this one and seeing it come so close to the coast looks surreal.

The village has never been so popular thanks to this magnificent chunk of ice which seems to have struck shallow waters and ground to a halt. The small town can't really cater for the sudden influx of tourists visiting the area who've come from all over to get a glimpse of the spectacular iceberg. Ferryland has just two restaurants which are not open until end of May, so if you fancy getting a glimpse of the giant phantom ice-cube bring some lunch. One thing for sure is that Ferryland won't be running out of ice anytime soon.
