(Town of Fogo Island)

On behalf of the Community of Tilting, Welcome! Come and visit Tilting, a Provincial Heritage District and National Historic Site of Canada. Come explore a traditional fishing community. Located on the North Eastern tip of Fogo Island in Central Newfoundland, we teeter on the edge of the pristine waters of the North Atlantic. Delight in our rich culture, and rich Irish Heritage as you visit our museums, hike our beautiful trails, or bask in the sun on our Sandy Beach. Outdoor scenery, indoor hospitality, and a traditional townscape provide the perfect backdrop for a truly memorable visit!  We look forward to seeing you soon!

A Brief Introduction to the Community Tilting:

The community of Tilting is a National Historic Site of Canada and Newfoundland and Labrador's First Provincial Registered Heritage District. Tilting was first settled by the French in the late 1600's and later it became an exclusively Irish enclave beginning with the first settlers from Ireland in 1752.

The pristine waters of the North Atlantic form the backdrop to one of the few remaining Newfoundland outports to maintain their traditional structures relating to the inshore fishery, including stages, stores, gardens, and fencing.

Come visit Tilting, home to the oldest Irish Catholic cemetery in Newfoundland and Labrador, historic museums, scenic trails, beautiful beaches, icebergs and an abundance of natural beauty. Tilting is steeped in rich heritage, folklore, and hospitality, and is sure to offer something for everyone!
