There are seven distinct seasons on Fogo Island, hopeful springs, a trap berth season inspired by the traditional fishery, warm summers, the world’s best berry picking in the early fall, tempestuous late falls, snowy winters, and a spectacular pack ice season. Each of the seven seasons provides a different perspective for getting to know us, our island, and perhaps yourself.
