If you are touring Newfoundland and Labrador, or just interested in seeing icebergs, there are still some to be seen at various parts of the coastlines. This map
is from Iceberg Finder.Com. The site shows satellite detected icebergs from the last nine days, and tourist berg sightings. To inquire further you can call tourist information at 1-800-563-6353.

On the Iceberg Finder site, click on the + or - sign to zoom in and out of a particular berg or group. Zooming in gives you a more precise location of where to find them. The site also tells you what size or type the iceberg is. Keep in mind, they're not all big icebergs, so if you were intending to travel a long distance, it would be a good idea to contact a tourism depot for that area to inquire, or contact tourism operators in that area who may give first hand information.

There is also this one that has lingered just outside Quidi Vidi harbour, and also seen from Signal Hill. However, it can be seen closer from either the village of Quidi Vidi, or as this photo shows, a hilltop (accessed from the East Coast hiking trail, starting in Quidi Vidi).
