Fogo Island Inn sits on an island, off an island, at one of the four corners of the Earth. Situated along Iceberg Alley, all 29 suites feature floor-to-ceiling windows opening onto the wildest and most powerful ocean on the planet.

Furnished with handmade quiet luxuries, the Inn combines warm Fogo Island hospitality, traditions and local craftmanship with contemporary architecture and amenties. This retreat is a gathering place for guests, artists and locals alike, offering local cuisine infused with leading edge culinary practices. Facilities include a restaurant, lobby bar, rooftop wood-fired saunas and hot tubs, gym and yoga space, massage services, contemporary art gallery, library and reading room, cinema, bicycle rental.

The island's still-wild world has caribou to track, hills of berries to forage, nature trails to explore, and countless birds and sea life to behold. Give yourself time to explore here and who knows what you might find. You might be enlightened while hiking rugged coastal trails, amazed while fishing for cod in the traditional way, or inspired through an art workshop. You might even leave with a fresh perspective on the world.

This award-winning Inn is operated as a social business, is a community asset and 100% of the operating surpluses are reinvested into the community.
