Fogo Island Inn
Newfoundland's Fogo Island Inn sits on an island, off an island, at one of the four corners of the earth. Commissioned by the Shorefast Foundation and designed by Newfoundland-born architect Todd Saunders, the inn has quickly garnered an international reputation for exceptional, embodied, place-specific hospitality and bold, thoughtful, humanistic and contemporary design. Situated along Iceberg Alley, all 29 one-of-a-kind guest rooms and suites feature dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto the wildest and most powerful ocean on the planet. Most rooms have a wood-burning fireplace stove; all are furnished with quiet luxuries and handmade furniture and quilts – a stimulating relief from the numbing uniformity of modern times. The island’s still-wild world has caribou to track, hills of berries to forage, nature trails to explore and birds and sea life to behold. The award-winning inn is a community asset – 100 percent of operating surpluses are reinvested into the community. Package includes: two or three nights of accommodation, all meals, a half day Fogo Island orientation excursion with a local Community Host, and all land-based excursions offered by the Community Hosting program. Transfer rates between Fogo Island and Gander International Airport are available upon request.
