Destination: Fogo Island Inn, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada

When you picture the rocky, windswept shoreline of the rugged Newfoundland and Labrador coast, you probably didn’t imagine anything quite like this. But somehow, despite the fact that it stands out from the surrounding environment, the contemporary appearance of the Fogo Island Inn and accompanying buildings feel appropriately located, anchored to the craggy shore of this remote Canadian island.

A stay at the Fogo Island Inn is an entirely different experience than visiting a hotel, with each room featuring unique, locally made decor and furniture. And while this stay will certainly be an indulgence in many ways (yes, it’s expensive), visitors should not expect the typical experiences associated with hotels. Staying at the Fogo Island Inn is a different kind of retreat, one that prioritizes connecting with the unique environment and friendly locals.

This small island and surrounding Atlantic Coast provide a plethora of interesting and unique experiences for the intrepid visitor, and the staff at the inn facilitate a substantial list of activities for guests, including:

  • Boat tours on the North Atlantic with local fishermen
  • Nature hikes on the coast
  • Guided geology tours
  • Boat-building seminars
  • Making and bottling jams and jellies
  • Berry picking
  • Whale watching
  • Snowmobiling and much more, depending on the season
