The easiest way to organise a visit to the Falkland Islands is to contact one of the two Falkland Island Tour Operators. Falkland Island Holidays and International Tours and Travel have many years of experience in planning and booking tours to suit individuals and groups, with a range of interests and budgets.
Both operators will arrange tailor-made itineraries to include destinations of your choice, based around the attractions and activities that appeal to you. If you prefer an off-the-shelf package or would like some ideas for an itinerary, take a look at the suggestions on the websites of both companies. Base your holiday around wildlife, the 1982 war, walking, fishing or take a general interest tour.
Discussing your ideas with on-the-ground experts means you can create your perfect trip, then relax knowing everything will be organised for you. Falkland Island Holidays and International Tours and Travel will make all the arrangements necessary for accommodation and transport around the Islands, including a meet-and-greet on arrival at Mount Pleasant International Airport to set you on your way.
For those who would rather book closer to home, many international operators offer holidays in the Falklands. Some focus on exclusive tours of the Islands including niche offerings such as a photography, wildlife or war itinerary. Others offer the Falklands as part of a wider package with South America or Antarctica, particularly as a stop-off or two from a cruise vessel.
Choose carefully, remembering that for land-based tours there are two flight routes to the Islands, with LATAM via Santiago in Chile or on a Ministry of Defence (MOD) operated flight from Brize Norton in Oxfordshire, UK. Travelling via Santiago may include an over-night stay, an added attraction. The MOD option has only a short re-fuelling stop in Ascension Island. A cruise visit will give you a flavour of the Falklands and hopefully the taste for more!
