As a woman tourist sits upon the large rocks along the shoreline of Quirpon on the Great Northern Peninsula in Newfoundland, she takes her own pictures while doing some iceberg watching. Iceberg watching is very interesting as these massive pieces of ice float throughout various parts of the Atlantic Ocean and one never knows when they will break apart and create larger patches of pack ice.Amongst the pack ice in the harbour of Quirpon, Newfoundland you get a good view of the incredible colors amongst each iceberg. Off in the distance a massive iceberg makes its way around the point and this large mass of ice will take a long time to melt on its fascinating journey. This iceberg is gigantic from the shoreline but one must realize that ninety percent of the iceberg sits below the surface of the water, so this view is only a small portion of its true size.This woman is not the only one to sit upon this shoreline watching icebergs, as the town of Quirpon in Newfoundland is one of the best locations to do this. The Labrador current makes the icebergs head south and Quirpon has the longest season around Newfoundland for iceberg watching.Iceberg watching is a main attraction in Quirpon, Newfoundland but you may also be able to spot a humpback, minke or Orca around the waters off this town. This is truly an area of nature's incredible creations and hours can be spent sitting along the Newfoundland coastline enjoying the scenery and wildlife.Woman iceberg watching from the shore in the town of Quirpon with pack ice in the harbour, Trails to the Vikings, Viking Trail, Great Northern Peninsula, Northern Peninsula, Newfoundland, Canada.
