DAY 1

Afternoon

Arrive on Fogo Island and let the island start to reveal itself on the 30-minute drive through outport communities as you make your way home to your refuge, Fogo Island Inn.

Check into Fogo Island Inn; a traditional yet contemporary masterpiece of modern architecture and design. The Inn has been recently recognized as one of Telegraph Travel's 50 Greatest Hotels in the World 2016.

Our welcoming staff will orient you to your suite, which is a front row seat to one of the wildest and most powerful oceans in the world. Breathe out, unwind, you have arrived at a place of emotional freedom and unmediated connections to the natural world.

Cocktail Hour

Even though it will be difficult to leave your sumptuous, soulful suite, do tear yourself away to join us at the cocktail hour. In the lounge cocktails are shaken or stirred over, of course, iceberg ice.

Evening

Supper in our dining room; named one of Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants, 2016. Enjoy contemporary Newfoundland cuisine featuring the bounty of the land and sea, while waves crash on the shoreline and icebergs drift just beyond your table setting.

After supper, view a screening of Roy Ward Baker’s 1958 British Docu-drama “A Night to Remember” in our state-of–the-art cinema.

Late Evening

Cozy up to a wood-burning fire in the lounge or in your suite, unwind in the roof top saunas and our hot tubs under a star-filled sky on the edge of a moonlit North Atlantic Ocean.

Day 2

Wake-up

Wake up and meet the day with a special surprise just outside your door. Our Day Break “tacklebox” features your choice of tea/coffee and pastries.

And while you rouse yourself from the comfort of your bed look out your floor to ceiling windows and see what nature has delivered to you overnight…more icebergs?

Morning

Meet your Community Host in the lobby for your island orientation. Be prepared for fresh perspectives and insights; stories and laughter during your half-day outing. Allow yourself to be oriented to this “salty Narnia” by the people of the place - who have retained their 400 year-old heritage; whose sense of self comes from deep historical ties to landscape and seascape; people who are profoundly at home on this “edge of the known.”

Afternoon

In the midst of, and enveloped by, one of the world’s largest colonies of puffins and razorbills, surrounded by whales, while circumnavigating an iceberg, feel the marvels of nature during your half day excursion aboard the m/v Ketanja with Captain Ane and his crew.
