Fogo Island Inn sits on an island, off an island, at one of the four corners of the Earth. Situated along Iceberg Alley, all 29 rooms and suites feature floor-to-ceiling windows opening onto the wildest and most powerful ocean on the planet. Furnished with handmade quiet luxuries, they serve as a welcome refuge from the numbing uniformity of modern times. The island’s still-wild world has caribou to track, hills of berries to forage, nature trails to explore and countless birds and sea life to behold. This award-winning Inn is operated as a social business, is a community asset and 100% of the operating surpluses are reinvested into the community.
Fogo Island Inn's dining room was named among the top three "Best New Restaurants" in Canada by enRoute magazine. Led by Executive Chef Jonathan Gushue, the Inn's culinary team is responsible for the Inn’s 48-seat dining room, 35-seat lounge and, for on- and off-site catering. The team finds inspiration in the ocean’s bounty, from ingredients grown on the island, and from Fogo Island’s time-honoured outport cooking traditions. Everything coming out of the kitchen is handmade – sausage, bread, baked goods, bacon, and mustards. The menu changes with the wind and the waves and the seven seasons: a culinary mission that respects and celebrates the profound gift of place that is Fogo Island.
Fogo Island is a place where going out on the ocean to catch a fish or watch whales is a part of the natural cadence of life. Fogo Island Inn offers a superb range of land and ocean based experiences and activities for individuals, couples, families and groups. Opportunities range from planned artistic, cultural, marine and natural excursions to expert-guided indoor and outdoor activities and self-guided explorations. Local Island ambassadors are available through our Community Host Program to all guests throughout the Seven Seasons.
