Iceberg Watching

Each spring, 10,000-year-old icebergs can be seen sailing past our shores.

April 1 - June 30

Every year, monoliths of ancient ice make their way down the Labrador Current to the shores of Fogo Island. Circumnavigate an iceberg an hour offshore or observe them out of the floor-to-ceiling windows of your room from the warmth and comfort of your bed. Located along “Iceberg Alley,” Fogo Island Inn is perfectly situated for taking in the ever-changing hues that highlight these behemoths of ancient ice. Whether you are out hunting for ‘bergie bits aboard a seafaring vessel, scouting the waves for icebergs, migrating whales, and seabirds, or merely wondering in awe at the power and expanse of the wild North Atlantic, you will undoubtedly feel the remarkable might of these glacial giants.

Iceberg hunters wishing to track the movements of these migrating monoliths may visit for live iceberg updates.

Icebergs grow larger each day, before moving on to face their ultimate fates in warmer waters. The iceberg's fickle nature makes their timing hard to predict so, if you're lucky, you'll have a chance to witness this fantastic spectacle.
