The Jason Island group is named after a survey vessel, HMS Jason and located in the extreme northwest of the Falklands peninsula. This rocky-ridged chain of islands boasts breathtaking scenery and amazing wildlife. Reached only by boat, permission is needed to land on any of the islands, most of which are classified as a National Nature Reserve and are Important Bird Areas. Steeple Jason rises steeply from the shore to a series of dramatic rocky peaks, the highest at 290m (952 feet) and is home to the world’s largest colony of black-browed albatross. Other birdlife includes Gentoo and Rockhopper penguins, striated caracaras and southern giant petrels.
