Fogo Island is a remote and picturesque island within the Iceberg Alley, off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada. Thanks to the cod-rich waters around, the first settlers from the mid-1700s have preserved their Irish and Elizabethan English heritage on Fogo Island. Bogs and boreal forests here are home to caribou and small wildlife, while the Atlantic waters attract whales and seabirds. Dotted with footpaths and panoramic viewpoints, the subarctic landscape is marked by excellent walking trails that meander across rolling hills and rocky cliffsides. Contemporary art studios are scattered across Fogo Island and the Fogo Island Inn is a highlight of the unique architecture of the region. These coastal settlements have museums and heritage properties that showcase Fogo Island’s distinctive history and culture. While there’s year-round local entertainment at intimate shed parties, the Fogo Island Partridgeberry Harvest Festival and the Féile Tilting festival bring some annual cheer.
