Fogo Island Inn

Fogo Island Inn is a contemporary retreat literally perched on a craggy outcrop of Fogo Island off Newfoundland's dramatic shoreline.

Teetering on the edge, supported by flamingo-like stilts that look like they could barely withstand the tiniest splash from the Atlantic Ocean, Fogo Island Inn encompasses contemporary luxury with all that is traditional of the North Atlantic.

To call it an inn seems to contradict the idea of a luxury hotel; however, community is the focus of Fogo and the inn is very much a meeting place.

There are 29 rooms, all individually designed to retreat to with beautifully crafted woods, hand sewn quilts and artful wallpaper all reflecting the island's old traditions. No matter what time of year it is, there are a huge number of activities to enjoy from hiking in the berry season to art workshops, cross country skiing in the winter, traditional cod fishing, and if you are brave enough in the ice period - ice pan jumping!

Why we like it

Like something out of Grand Designs, this modern piece of architecture is as minimalist as its surroundings seem, yet it provides a warm welcome and homely escape to one of  the 'four corners of the earth'. This is a region so remote, only icebergs and humpback whales float by.


Fogo Island Inn is a member of National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World, a collection of world-class accommodations offering rich and meaningful experiences and showing a commitment to sustainability.
