Falkland Islands Holidays

Why we like Falkland Islands

With their white sand beaches and windswept moors, the Falkland Islands play host to an astonishing variety of wildlife. This is nature's kingdom where the husky cry of the sea lion, the quizzical gaze of the rockhopper penguin and the unfamiliar companionship of the striated caracara are a reminder of nature’s supremacy.

What to expect on your Falkland Islands holiday

The Falkland Islands are a windswept frontier where people are outnumbered by penguins, so it is hardly surprising to discover that the main attraction here is the enormous bounty of wildlife. It’s not uncommon to spot dolphins frolicking in the icy waters around Stanley Harbour or comical gentoo penguins waddling to and fro from low lying rookeries dotted along the rugged coast.

From Carcass Island to Sea Lion Island, the throng of birdlife is extraordinary.Penguins are particularly well represented with king penguins, gentoos, rockhoppers, macaroni and magellan penguins breeding annually upon the Falklands' shores. Furthermore, a voyage into the deep waters of outlying islands will occasionally reward marine enthusiasts with sightings of bull elephant seals and southern right whale encounters.

Accommodation on the islands is a mixture of small hotels and converted farm steads. All are comfortable and offer an exceptionally warm welcome.
