For a secluded honeymoon experience, newlyweds can travel north to Fogo Island Inn in Newfoundland, Canada. Perched on the furthest edge of the island, the property provides wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling windows in each guest room to view whales, seabirds, and icebergs off of the rocky coastline. With an island population of only 3,000, the escape allows newlyweds to immerse themselves in a remote adventure unlike anything else.
The property, which was designed by a Newfoundland-born and Norway-based architect, features 29 suites with custom furniture and details handmade by local carpenters and artisans. Honeymooners can indulge in eats and libations at the inn’s fine-dining restaurant, lounge, and bar, or enjoy recreational activities at the gym and cinema. Hot tubs and wood-fired saunas on the rooftop provide the perfect setting for a romantic night of stargazing. Additional island activities include hiking coastal trails, traditional cod fishing, or partaking in art workshops. During chilly nights, couples can cozy up in front of wood-burning fires in many of the suites, as well as in all public areas.
Rates include accommodations, breakfast, afternoon tea, supper, dinner, snacks, non-alcoholic beverages, and gratuities. Prices range between $550-2,950 varying with the seasons, based on double occupancy. For more information on Fogo Island Inn, visit fogoislandinn.ca.
