Fogo Island Vacation Rentals

Fogo Travel Guide

Fogo Island is the largest offshore island of Newfoundland and Labrador, and has a rich maritime history. Fogo town is situated on the north shore of the island at Fogo Harbor and is packed with natural beauty as well as a small, welcoming community.

Things to Do in Fogo

People come to Fogo for the wilderness, and the incredibly diverse nature and animal life. Here, visitors can see caribou, puffins, and even breaching whales.

Exploring the island by foot is the best way to see everything. There are plenty of hiking trails, mostly of which can be completed alone, or alternatively, ask for help from local naturalists to venture further afield. Follow ancient trails and pick berries or hike along sea cliff pathways to spot the icebergs and whales.

Other season-dependent activities include bicycling, fishing, stargazing, rowing, swimming, snow shoeing, and ice skating. History buffs can also take tours to learn about the geology of the island.

If you fancy something completely different, try you hand at iceberg tracking. Fogo island is home to icebergs from Greenland that are carried south by the powerful Labrador Current. Visitors can see an ever-changing seascape from these shores. Naturally, the whole island is a fishing community, so you can expect to hear and learn a lot about the revered Atlantic Cod.

Best Time to Visit Fogo

Fogo is accessible all year round but the warmer months are more pleasant, with spring bringing wild flowers and native berries out in the fields.
