April 1 - May 31
Receding ocean ice, thawing ponds, and sprouting flora bring a welcome breath of fresh air to Fogo Island’s Spring Season. Fishers gear up and their boats scoot in and out of the Island’s harbours in pursuit of crab and shrimp as icebergs begin to arrive on the horizon.
Spring is an ideal time to stretch your legs and venture outdoors for a hike, walk, or amble as footpaths open up. Collect shells as they lie abandoned on the rocks after waiting out the winter, imprisoned in ice. This “in between” season also sees the occasional North Atlantic gale, making spring an opportune time to encounter all of Fogo Island’s distinctive weather moods.
