Photo: St Juliens Pack Ice Newfoundland Canada

The harbour of St Juliens in Newfoundland, Canada is calm and quiet but just beyond the entrance, all you can see is masses of pack ice floating freely.

Along the coastline of the small fishing village of St Juliens in Newfoundland, Canada, fishing stages and houses sit near the water's edge where the locals moor their boats. Beyond the islands that block a portion of the harbour entrance which keeps this small town sheltered, the surface of the ocean is adorned with pack ice. The region that surrounds St Juliens, Newfoundland is known as the French Shore and pack ice is a common sight during the Spring season. Before a majority of the pack ice appears along the coastline of St Juliens, large icebergs pass by which slowly break up creating the pack ice.In the backdrop from the village of St Julien's, you can see a white line that scans across the horizon. These are icebergs that are still stuck in pack ice which have not been able to break away and move freely about. Once they break apart, larger icebergs will drift inwards around the coastal villages like St Julien's. ... continue below the picture...

... You can sit along this coastline for days and watch the icebergs and pack ice as they change shape every minute while melting into the ocean.From this tiny fishing village, the scenery is incredible especially when the massive icebergs are visible. Some of the pack ice enters into the harbour while other pieces float aimlessly outside the entrance to St Juliens. All the pack ice which encompasses St Juliens makes it impossible for any of the local fishermen to leave the harbour until it disappears for good.To reach this unique village where you can view icebergs and pack ice from the shore, take Route 438 turnoff and travel along a gravel road. Here you will come across a 1.5 kilometer trail that takes you to the village of St Juliens in Newfoundland, Canada. While journeying to St Juliens, keep your eyes open for moose grazing, black bears or caribou.Homes and Fishing Stages along the waterfront of St Julien's with pack ice beyond the entrance to the harbour, St Julien's, French Shore, Viking Trail, Northern Peninsula, Great Northern Peninsula, Newfoundland, Canada.
