Just 45 minutes off mainland Newfoundland, Fogo Island is a fascinating, utterly remote destination where the elemental forces of rock, ice, wind, fire and sea have clashed for over 420 million years, carving out a landscape that resembles nowhere else on Earth.
Go on a full day of hiking with a local naturalist, geologist, or community host, choosing from 14 different trails – each offers their own set of challenges and rewards, and treats you to unique land-, sea-, wind- and icescapes of this island-off-an-island at North America’s outermost edge. Encounter carnivorous plants, edible wild berries
and mushrooms, caribou, and puffins. Explore the island’s 10 thriving fishing communities, and hauntingly beautiful abandoned villages. And stop for a traditional Newfoundland ‘boil up’ over an open fire, enjoying hot tea, fresh fish and locally foraged berries.
