Day 1: Arrival in Gander
On arrival in Gander, you will be met at the airport and taken to the helicopter, which will take you directly to Fogo Island, an island at the edge of the earth. Here you will check in for three nights, ready to explore the wilderness and enjoy this luxurious hotel.
Days 2 & 3: Fogo Island Inn
Located on Fogo Island, a 45-minute boat ride from the main island of Newfoundland, this contemporary inn welcomes guests year-round to a spectacular North Atlantic setting. Combining traditional hospitality and décor with modern architecture and cuisine, this unique space is a gathering place for people who love wild, barren landscapes and want to experience eastern Canada at its best. You’ll be staying in one of the Labrador Suites – individually decorated with locally handcrafted furnishings and textiles. Each suite features floor to ceiling windows, allowing views of the ocean to sweep into the room and make it feel like you are part of the landscape.
In the springtime, Fogo Island is colloquially referred to as Iceberg Alley, due to the huge blue icebergs that float between Greenland and Newfoundland. Between mid-May and June, you’ll be able to see these icebergs as they drift across the ocean right outside your window. Along with the 2,000-strong human population, the island is home to herds of caribou, beavers, foxes, mosses and wildflowers that carpet the rugged fields throughout the summer months. Not only that, but thousands of edible berries can be foraged across the island during autumn.
Day 4: Departure from Gander
Today is your final day in Fogo Island, take one last stroll along the rocky waters edge to watch the icebergs float past before taking the helicopter back to Newfoundland at Gander Airport, from which you’ll catch your onwards flight.
