In recent years, the people of Fogo Island have slowly been putting themselves on the map for the world to see. For those of you who have not yet discovered the magic that is Fogo Island, it’s nestled off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada, in the Atlantic ocean.
A rock covered island, like most of Newfoundland and Labrador, Fogo Island is famous for their hospitality, culture, and now their inn. Fogo Island Inn has been the catalyst in bringing people, famous and otherwise, to this amazing place.
I’ve always had a soft spot for Newfoundland and Labrador ever since going to visit with my step dad in middle school. I spent seven years at university in St. John’s, the largest city, and despite the terrible weather, I loved it. So I had no doubt in my mind that I would also love Fogo Island.
From the Trudeaus, to Oprah (O Magazine), to Gwyneth Paltrow, Fogo Island Inn has had many the famous guest. To book a stay it’ll set you back about $1575 CAD for a two night stay (which is the minimum stay).
Fogo island is a destination like no other. It’s rugged but luxurious, and isolated but welcoming. I will definitely be back for more island adventures someday.
Until next time,
