Seriously cool: it is iceberg season

For The Titanic, an encounter with an iceberg ended in tragedy.

But for many visitors to Newfoundland and Labrador, on Canada's Atlantic Coast, getting up close and person with an iceberg is top of their "to do" list.

Newfoundland and Labrador is one of the best places in the world to see icebergs of all shapes and sizes that drift past every spring and summer.

Iceberg season has just launched and icebergs can be seen from land, on a boat tour, or drinking one straight from your cup.

But with 29,000 kilometres of coastline, even a frozen skyscraper can be hard to find. That's why the locals have made life easier for tourists by creating Iceberg Finder - an interactive map that tracks icebergs in real time.

You've got to love the evocative names of some of the local spots where you might o iceberg spotting too. I particulary like Black Tickle and Heart's Content.

You can follow Iceberg Finder on Instagram to stay up to date with recent sightings, photos and information.

Good news for tourists is that iceberg season is during the warmer months. Newfoundland can be bitterly cold from September onwards. I tried it and survived. Just.
