Explore the Falklands – at your own pace!

Go East…

East Falkland pretty much has it all – wildlife, history, amazing walks, and fabulous fishing.  Take a trip to Volunteer Point to see 3,000 King and 7,000 Gentoo Penguins in the most picturesque of settings - a spectacular white sandy beach. Visit the battlefields of the 1982 conflict finding relics from the war and the memorials for the fallen. Climb Mount Usborne for spectacular views of the Falklands or take less strenuous walks to penguin colonies and around picturesque settlements such as Darwin and San Carlos.

Go West…

West Falkland has some of the most stunning scenery in all of the Falkland Islands: amazing coastlines with towering cliffs, sheltered coves with Gentoo and Rockhopper penguins, and a choice of cozy serviced and self-catering accommodation to base yourself in.  Accessible by ferry from East Falkland (or flights on FIGAS) make sure you spend some time in the pretty settlement of Port Howard in the north, then work your way south.  Don’t miss the amazing rock formations of Indian Village in Port Stephens in the south.

Go Islands…

There are six islands with serviced accommodation to chose from: Bleaker and Sea Lion in the south, Weddell in the west, and Carcass, Pebble and Saunders in the north-west.  All are special in their own way, but all give a taste of real Falkland Island life.  Remote, with a population of around 2-4 people on each island, they are peaceful, tranquil, beautiful and full of wildlife. Penguins, elephant seals, sea lions, dolphins…there are surprises everywhere you go.

Go Stanley…

The Falklands are not just about the wildlife.  Stanley provides a fascinating insight into Falklands life, where over 80% of the population lives.  Don’t miss the highly impressive Historic Dockyard Museum, which provides fascinating insight into the maritime history, 1982 conflict, and life on the islands from the time of the first settlers.  Other highlights include penguins at Gypsy Cove, the wreck of the Lady Elizabeth, and touring the battlefields of Mount Tumbledown and surrounding hills.
