Fogo & Change Islands

Jump to last reply

Does anyone have any insight on these islands? This will be our first time in north central Newfoundland. We will stop for a couple of days in Twillingate, but I am thinking about spending a day or two on Fogo Island or Change Island. I think it may be a totally different experience. Seems like there are only two places to stay on Change Islands and one on Fogo. Is there enough to fill time? What are the differences between the two?

    Honestly, I have not visited either Fogo or the Change Islands but do know the Twillingate area fairly well.

    At Twillingate the Long Point lighthouse offers a fabulous view and is a good spot for ice berg and whale watching. There is an interesting museum at the lighthouse.
    The fisheries museum in Twillingate is also very good.

    Both Change Islands and Fogo were very isolated until recent times. I suspect that a visit to either would be a fascinating cultural experience.

    I suggest visiting the museum on either island and having a chat with some of the local people. Chances are you will be entertained with more stories and anecdotes than you would find in any book. I've done this several times in outport Nfld. and each time it has been fascinating.
    A word of warning - some of the accents from this region are very 'thick'. If you have trouble understanding British accents you might have a bit of a challenge.....

    Either island sounds like a good choice for a very relaxed time amidst wonderful scenery and friendly people.
    If you do decide to visit either island I would be interested in reading about the experience.

    Have a great trip.
