Bringing together rich culture, history and community, this idyllic island is the perfect rural retreat to experience Canadian wilderness and discover the natural beauty of the North Atlantic. Saunders Architects wanted to mimic the Inn’s scenic backdrop, and so the design represents a jagged landscape that dramatically stands out as a sensational cultural attraction.
Located 30 minutes away from Newfoundland in Iceberg Alley, the island can be reached via ferry from Central Newfoundland in as little as 50 minutes. Of course, if you’re after the wow-factor, we can charter you a private aircraft to drop you to the island. It’ll be an entrance as dramatic as the scenery.
The Fogo Island Inn, along with the warm and welcoming population, invite guests to experience a luxury stay in the heart of Newfoundland, with creative local cuisine, a wood fired sauna and a cinema. A rugged, coastal landscape offers action packed activities such as skiing, hiking, fishing, ocean kayaking and seabird watching. The area’s climate offers seven seasons and an abundance of fulfilling activities, so there are a variety of ways to get to know the landscape, the culture and wildlife.
The suites embody the spirit of the striking landscape that can be admired from the floor to ceiling windows. Large walk in showers, heated wood floors and crackling wood burning stoves are just a few of the special features you can enjoy. The contemporary outport design is unique to this area and every part of furniture in each of the 29 suites is beautifully handcrafted, allowing modern to be mixed with traditional.
