Fly over the mountainous coast to remote Fogo Island for a stay at the award-winning Fogo Island Inn, Canada’s first Regenerative Travel hotel and one of the top hotels in the world. The Fogo Island experience includes a personal community guide who will immerse you in life on this small island in the North Atlantic.

 

Experience the small-town charm and epic natural beauty of Canada’s easternmost province. Newfoundland is a rocky  island off the east coast of North America, shaped by the intensity of the North Atlantic Ocean. On this carefully curated, small group journey, you’ll get the chance to discover the secrets of its western edge under the care of experienced local guides.  You’ll take part in the region’s first Indigenous tour where First Nations guides will showcase their land through guided walks and their connection to the water on a guided boat tour.

 

You’ll visit a small fishing village where locals will show you the realities of life on this remote land. And you’ll travel to Fogo Island where your community host will be waiting to welcome you warmly to this ‘island off an island’. For the duration of your stay at the award-winning Fogo Island Inn, your community host will be the one to curate your experience – welcoming you into his or her community in an authentic and meaningful way for a one-of-a-kind experience.
