Fogo Is­land Inn

FOGO IS­LAND, NEW­FOUND­LAND

GQ (Australia) - - GQ TASTE + TRAVEL -

Be­fore the stilts of Fogo Inn pierced the stony land­mass of this North At­lantic-fac­ing is­land, it was on the brink of eco­nomic ex­tinc­tion. Now, it’s an end-of-the-earth grail for those who like to ad­ven­ture in style, and, by em­ploy­ing lo­cal crafts­peo­ple to up­hol­ster and fur­nish the ho­tel’s belly, it’s breath­ing life back into the lo­cal com­mu­nity. Stretch­ing out over a gran­ite bluff to­wards Green­land, Fogo Is­land Inn is tricky to reach but worth the flight, drive and ferry ride. How of­ten do you in­dulge in a for­age-to-ta­ble de­gus­ta­tion while watch­ing floes creep up Ice­berg Al­ley on their spring­time com­mute? Not of­ten enough, if you ask us. BEST BIT Watch whales glid­ing past in the sum­mer months and ice­bergs in win­ter – all from the com­fort of your suite. HOWMUCH? Rooms start at ap­prox. $1920 per night. Price in­cludes all meals and ameni­ties, as well as an Is­land ori­en­ta­tion with a lo­cal com­mu­nity host. fo­go­is­landinn.ca
