Journey to Fogo Island Inn and Fishers’ Loft Newfoundland Canada

Quench Trip Design Launches Private Journey to Fogo Island Inn and Fishers’ Loft, Newfoundland, Canada. The self-drive tour includes seasonal sustainable meals prepared by award-winning chefs, guided naturalist walks and food foraging, cooking demonstrations and more.

Epicurean Newfoundland is a new culinary journey curated by Quench Trip Design, discerning destination experts specialized in bespoke private travel. In partnership with award-winning Fogo Island Inn and Fishers’ Loft, the self-driving point-to-point tour of Canada’s easternmost province invites gastronomes to explore the enigmatic landscapes of the Avalon and Bonavista Peninsulas and Fogo Island and to discover a culinary heritage inextricably tied with land and sea. The sustainable-food focused trip is the first of its kind in the area. Seven night departures are available beginning September 1, 2016 through to October 31st, 2016.
“Newfoundland’s historic coastal roads are virtually devoid of traffic once the summer touring crowds have gone home, which makes a fall road trip absolutely wonderful,” said Jennifer Deacon, Quench Trip Designer Co-Founder. “From a culinary perspective, autumn is the best season to visit Canada’s east coast, when Fogo Island is carpeted in dozens of varieties of edible berries and the surrounding waters are rich in Atlantic cod.”

Epicurean Newfoundland begins in St. John’s, one of the oldest European settlements in North America, where travellers will sample the culinary mastery of Jeremy Charles at Raymond’s Restaurant, voted Canada’s Best New Restaurant by enRoute Magazine in 2011. The self-drive vacation snakes northbound along the iconic Trans-Canada Highway towards Trinity Bay where guests check into the hilltop Fishers’ Loft, known for its seasonal menu using fresh produce from the kitchen garden and greenhouse. From the remote bay, travellers can access the panoramic Skerwink Trail, a 5.3 km coastal loop with abundant bird and whale-watching opportunities (in season). A private boat trip with a local fisherman to visit the abandoned outports of Ireland’s Eye and British Harbour is also included in the tour.
Quench travellers follow the trail of sustainable seafood to Fogo Island, where they will board the ferry and spend three nights at the award winning Fogo Island Inn. Guests will enjoy naturalist-guided walks and food foraging, cooking demonstrations and a private tour of the contemporary artist studios on the island, celebrated for their leading edge design. The tour culminates in Gander, in northeastern Newfoundland.

Rates start at $3,540 CAD per person, based on double occupancy. For more information about Epicurean Newfoundland, visit quenchtravel.com or call 416 366 2777.

This tour sounds perfect for all those travelers who love to sample different foods in their travels. The hotel at the edge of the land looks so modern in design with glass views in all directions.
