Magical, Moving Ice
March 1 through to May 15, 2018
Helicopter directly in to Fogo Island from Gander and bear witness to the mesmerizing, crushing, unpredictable power of the Arctic pack ice as it arrives with the Labrador Current to gorge the bays and harbours of Fogo Island – tectonic activity – undulating, grinding, sparking; ice floes with violet blue shadows; carrying seals, forming rifters and ridges; at times packed together by wind and tide; at other times opening up leads, drifting apart, revealing the inky blue water beneath. The North Atlantic is transformed into a sea of floating sculptures.
Choose from three Magical Moving Ice overnight itineraries that mark Fogo Island’s Pack Ice Season. This itinerary includes Gander helicopter transfers to and from Fogo Island Inn (weather permitting), all meals in the Inn's award-winning dining room, full use of the Inn's facilities and a half-day Community Host island orientation. A two-night minimum applies. To reserve, call International reservations at +1 709 658 3444, US & Canada reservations at +1 855 268 9277 or email [email protected]
