Late Fall

November 1 - November 30

With winter’s first frost on the horizon, Late Fall is a wonderful season 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.

Late Fall is a time of winter preparation, as local people are busy gathering and stacking firewood, and bottling and canning berries and other preserves. Those seeking solitude and reflection will find that late fall on Fogo Island provides the opportunity to think, feel, and 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. Those feeling up for adventure might choose to venture out for seabird and caribou watching, bonfire nights, and invigorating hikes.
