Just beside the turnoff to the Fogo Island Inn stands Wind and Waves, the artisans' guild on the island.

While at the Fogo Island Inn, we hiked, toured, met with craftspeople and fishermen, and even did a little foraging along the shoreline. But without question, the most exciting activity of our stay was heading into the open sea to view the icebergs that drift by the island, carried on the Labrador Current.
