Go go to Fogo Island

Deluxe, exclusive and luxurious are probably not terms that you would associate with Canada’s Fogo Island. Now, firstly, how many of you have heard of Fogo Island? Probably not many. But once you see it, you won’t likely forget it. Fogo Island is a picturesque island located off the northeast coast of Newfoundland, Canada. It’s renowned for its stunning landscapes, rugged coastline, and vibrant cultural heritage.

The island is home to several small fishing communities, each with its own distinct character and charm. It’s Canadian, but probably not the Canada that you have pictured in your mind. And, there is one particular landmark of this place that will never leave your cranium. When you look at the image below, it might evoke what rural and rugged eastern Canada might look like. But, if you explore a little closer you’ll come upon a most amazing edifice: the Fogo Island Inn. “What is this place and how can I find out more?” Note that you might need the services of two planes, a long drive and a ferry.
