TRAVEL & NATURE IN CANADA: FOGO ISLAND INN
“Real freedom lies in wilderness. Not in Civilization”- Charles Lindbergh.
We travel today to Fogo Island, a remote island in Canada, to discover a sustainable hotel that combines incredible architecture, the wildest nature, powerful ocean views and a deep respect for the province of Newfoundland: Fogo Island Inn.
Fogo Island Inn feels like a completely secret place totally removed from the world. It is remote, quiet and peaceful and I hope this post conveys that feeling to you too!
This award-winning Inn with 29 one-of-a-kind guest suites sits on an island, at one of the four corners of the Earth. It is located off the Northeast Coast of Newfoundland (Canada) along “Iceberg Alley” of the Labrador Strait. It is the largest of an archipelago of islands at the very eastern edge of the North American continent.
Designed by architect Todd Saunders, the Fogo Island Inn embodies the new aesthetic that has emerged on the island: bold, optimistic and distinctly of its place.
Each suite is unique, and every textile and piece of furniture is handcrafted and made locally. (The quilts, chairs and wallpaper are simply amazing!)
The Fogo Island Inn features one of the best restaurants in Canada, a library, cinema, contemporary art gallery, massage services, rooftop hot tubs, Scandinavian-style saunas, and a gym.
The Island is a welcoming wilderness where the whole family can enjoy hiking, fishing, berry picking, exploring and stargazing.
No doubt why the Fogo Island Inn is consider one of the most unique lodges in the world! It is the perfect spot for a fascinating back-to-nature experience!
