Fogo Island Inn - Hotel At The Edge Of The WorldFogo Island  
Inn

Located off the northeast coast of Newfoundland, Canada, Fogo Island is a remote yet accessible little spot (think: just over 2,000 people living in 10 distinct communities).

Situated in the Labrador Current along "Iceberg Alley," the Island Inn sits by the rugged shores of the wild North Atlantic Ocean. This island is rich in history; the name "Fogo" comes from the Portuguese word for fire.

Fogo attracted the attention of travelers when it opened on the far east side of Canada, in the barren and cold island world of Newfoundland.

Fogo Island Inn excels in three areas: unique architecture, extremely remote location, and luxury. But mostly the combination of all three. Would you expect this level of quality at the end of the world?

The building was designed to have minimal impact on the natural landscape, and it almost blends in with its surroundings. Thanks to its remoteness, the harsh but fascinating land of Newfoundland will be discovered by thousands of travelers.

Hungry? Don't miss out on dining in the gorgeous dining room. With dramatic vaulted ceilings, this room looks out to the ocean with views of the distant Barr'd Islands and looks out over the ocean with views of the community of Barr'd Islands in the distance.

All 29 suites include floor-to-ceiling windows with spectacular views of the sea and sky.

Two floors of guest suites sit atop the Inn's stilts, a nod to traditional outport fishing stages. The Inn's sharp angles and rough contours mirror Fogo Island's jagged and uneven landscape.

The hotel has a traditional Finnish sauna with a wood-burning stove and a window overlooking the coast of Newfoundland. I cannot imagine a better place after a hike in the ice-cold wilderness.

Actually, I can. How about the outdoor hot tub on the hotel's rooftop with panoramic sea views?

Depending on the season, guests can also enjoy views of icebergs and whales breaching offshore or enjoy a front-row view of a true North Atlantic gale. Speaking of seasons...

Guests can choose to stay during one of seven seasons. Wait, seven? Yes! The Fogo Island Inn's website assures visitors that whichever season they choose, there will be a myriad of things to do.
