Seven Seasons of Solo Travel

Retreat in solitude and reconnect with yourself, here, at one of the four corners of the Earth. Fogo Island is one of the safest places on Earth and it is a haven for solo travelers looking to forge their own paths over the 420-million-year-old rocky landscape, commune with nature and culture in an exploration of this place, and ensconce themselves in quiet contemplation.

Solo adventurers will find ancient footpaths to walk along steeped in history, as well as jagged cliffs and animal tracks to follow, tracing through the untamed wilderness. With over 200 km of paths, routes, and trails, Fogo Island is a destination for solitary explorers seeking an otherworldly sense of peace and repose, amidst landscapes that often feel like another world. Depending on the season, wander the hills picking berries (you won’t have to share), snowshoe across blindingly white barrens and hills, or hike the coastline and count the whales and icebergs dotting the horizon. All outings can also be spent in the company of Community Hosts. 

There is no need to dine alone every night… unless that is the preference. There is always a communal supper table to join. Evenings can be spent relaxing by a roaring woodstove engrossed in a book, or honing new skills under the watchful eye of a master quilter or tart maker. Of course, the rooftop sauna and hot tubs await, providing the ultimate venue for unwinding in indulgent seclusion.
