Fogo Island spans about 35 kilometres from east to west and 24 kilometres from north to south with 2,395 people living in 10 distinct communities. The Island boasts countless plant and animal species that thrive in its untamed wilderness and icy waters. Although located just over halfway between the equator and the North Pole, the Labrador Current passing by Fogo Island's doorstep brings with it the makings for a subarctic landscape and a temperate maritime climate. The Island's boreal forest plays host to herds of caribou, beavers, foxes, mosses, grasses, and wildflowers. Migrating whales and icebergs visit in the spring, and fall’s berry season finds Fogo Island carpeted in at least two dozen varieties of edible berries.
Fogo Islands ancestors made their living by fishing for cod on the turbulent North Atlantic. Today, Fogo Island Inn honours and carries forward the history and culture of this singular place. Fogo Island Inn is an initiative of Shorefast Foundation, a registered Canadian charity dedicated to helping to secure a resilient economic future for Fogo Island. All surpluses from the operation of the Fogo Island Inn are reinvested in the community of Fogo Island through the projects and programs of Shorefast Foundation. There is no private benefit.
Fogo Island Inn has 29 guest suites and four suite types that showcase the richness of their locality and clearly express a modern take on traditional Newfoundland outport design and décor. Rates are per night, based on a two night minimum stay and double occupancy. Group rates are available upon request.
