Newfoundland and Labrador is the easternmost province of Canada, in the country’s Atlantic region. It is made up of the island of Newfoundland and the continental region of Labrador, having a total size of 405,212km2 (156,500 square miles).
Twillingate is a town of 2,121 people located on the Twillingate Islands in Notre Dame Bay, off the northeastern shore of the island of Newfoundland. Known as the Iceberg Capital of the World, Twillingate is part of Iceberg Alley which stretches from the coast of Labrador to the southeast coast of the island of Newfoundland. While icebergs can be found during the summer in Twillingate, they are more commonly found in late May and early June. Roughly 90% of icebergs seen off the coast come from the glaciers of western Greenland.
