Celebrating American Thanksgiving at Fogo Island Inn

Find a cozy nest beside a fire at Fogo Island Inn to enjoy the power of nature on this American Thanksgiving Weekend—November 23 to 25, 2017. Fogo Island's Late Fall season is a wonderful time to spend sitting and sipping a warm beverage as you watch dramatic waves crash up against the Island’s 420-million-year-old rocks. Wild and wonderful November gales are the backdrop to this time of change and power, providing the opportunity to think, feel, be grateful, or simply “be” in a place where the wind has a tendency to iron out all of life’s wrinkles as it blows in 36 different directions at once. Just outside your suite’s floor-to-ceiling windows is the "mad" roaring sea, tossing waves meters high. It delivers a relentless pounding to all in its path. Some say that the rocks can be heard crying for mercy. And so it is for hours, sometimes days, and then... it relents... and everything has been changed in the wake of this natural fury.

The weather on Fogo Island is an attraction in itself, often deemed unpredictable by locals and visitors alike; if you don’t like the weather here, just wait five minutes. Unwind next to the fire and allow yourself to be embraced by the handmade warmth of your surroundings, enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving supper with all the fixings, and celebrate with loved ones and newfound friends in this singular setting.
