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 act as a highway for these Arctic invaders. The icebergs that drift past Ferryland are normally much smaller in size, seeing one this large park itself so close to the shoreline makes it quite the spectacle.

The village has never been so popular thanks to the magnificent chunk of ice which seems to have struck shallow waters and ground to a halt. The small town is struggling to cater for the sudden influx of tourists visiting the area who've come from all over to get a photo of the spectacular iceberg. Ferryland has just two restaurants which are not open until the end of May, so if you fancy getting a glimpse of this giant iceberg be sure to bring along a spot of lunch.
