The town of Tilting was first settled by the Irish in the 18th century and is now a National Historic Site of Canada. Here, you can wander through the tall, lush grasses and run your fingers over the red paint of old fishing rooms. Creative traditions of music, dance, and storytelling run strong throughout the island, which is also home to the Fogo Island Partridgeberry Festival.
Walk the trails throughout the island and catch a glimpse of caribou herds grazing along the rolling hills. Imagine yourself seated on a patch of long grass, looking out over the pristine waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Twillingate embodies everything so many Newfoundland and Labrador outports are famous for: stunningly rugged coastline, historical, picturesque streets, and lush countryside roads.
