The town of Gander in eastern Newfoundland serves as the primary gateway to Fogo Island. Gander International Airport receives direct, year-round flights from Toronto, Halifax, and St. John’s Newfoundland and Labrador. From Gander, guests can travel to the island by air or a combination car and ferry transfer. The lodge offers these transfers at an additional cost. Those who wish to arrive on the island by air can connect with a helicopter or charter plane at the airports in Gander and St. John’s. Travelers arriving by air or who have arranged transfers via the lodge are invited to use Fogo Island Inn’s vehicles to explore the island, free of charge.
Fogo Island Inn is fully accessible to people with mobility challenges. Public spaces, entrances, and several suites are wheelchair accessible. The inn exceeds national regulatory standards for accessibility.
Fogo Island’s climate features seven seasons: winter, ice, spring, trap berth, summer, berry, and late fall. Those visiting in the warmer summer months should bring suitable clothes for exploring on land and on the water, including layers for chilly evenings or windy days. During the rest of the year, add sweaters or fleeces, a warm hat, and thick wool socks to your list. Be sure to bring your hiking boots for all seven seasons to explore the many paths and trails of Fogo Island. Other outdoor gear, including storm weather gear and rubber boots, is supplied by the lodge.
Children of all ages are welcome at Fogo Island Inn. Guests age 12 and under may share a room with two adults at no additional charge in Fogo Island Family Suites.
