The Town of St. Anthony (population 2,418) is a splendid coastal seaport situated on the northernmost reaches of the “Great Northern Peninsula“. It is one of those few exceptional places on earth that truly transcends hype, offering some of the finest vantage points in all of NL, and the world, for iceberg exploration.
See Iceberg Finder for real-time tracking of NL bergs.
