Trip to Newfoundland and Labrador

Video: Fogo Island Inn: Daring Design meets Ancient Fishing Community

Posted on 06/19/2017

In colorful Newfoundland turn of phrase, you might say that Fogo Island is far away from far away.  The island is remote; only accessible by ferries and helicopter flights that defy dramatic weather and waves to drop visitors on a a rocky outpost in the North Atlantic that until recently was a centuries-old, declining fishing community.  This is not where you might expect to find a hotel that has won world-wide acclaim for its architecture, experience, social responsibility, and design.

Designer Karen Sealy and BestTrip.TV visited the extraordinary Fogo Island Inn to see what happens when local maritime craftsmanship meets 21st century global design.
