Experience Fogo Island
Brimstone Head, Fogo. A piece of rocky landscape jutting into the sky. The Flat Earth Society believes this is one of the four corners of the Earth, and standing at the top, facing the Atlantic, you can see why.
Fogo Island Inn, a sleek, Nordic-style hotel perched on stilts at the Atlantic Ocean’s edge is an inspiring collaboration between traditional and modern. The restaurant, one of EnRoute magazine’s best in Canada, brings that combination to your table, with a gourmet cuisine infused with the bounty of the island and the Inn’s gardens.
The town of Tilting was first settled by the Irish in the 18th century and is now a National Historic Site of Canada. Here, you can wander through the tall, lush grasses and run your fingers over the red paint of old fishing rooms. Creative traditions of music, dance, and storytelling run strong throughout the island, which is also home to the Fogo Island Partridgeberry Festival.
Walk the trails throughout the island and catch a glimpse of caribou herds grazing along the rolling hills.
Explore Change Islands
On Change Islands, meander around historic buildings, over granite outcroppings, and past the greenest grasses and gardens. Small community charm and rich fishing culture combine with a prominent sense of history to make this place a tourist and artist's paradise. It's also home to a Newfoundland pony refuge.
