5 Days / 4 Nights
Gander to Gander
From USD$7,023 per person
View Map

On this five-day trip to Fogo Island in Newfoundland, experience the culture, people and accommodation authentic to Eastern Canada. Beginning in Gander, see the town and meet the people whose kindness inspired the hit musical 'Come From Away'. Travelers have been compelled to experience the place and people that welcomed the world. Then, take a helicopter transfer to the architecturally impressive Fogo Island Inn. Perched high on ancient rocks at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, it offers an eclectic mix of luxury and authenticity, balancing personalized meals and endless views with a list of activities led by locals.

Included in the tour are guided walks, berry picking, jam jarring and boat building (among many, many other things), and the traditional boil-up with a community host comes highly recommended. At the end of each day, return to the warm embrace of the Inn and share your stories from the day with other travelers. All meals, use of facilities, and gratuities are included in your stay.
