Falkland Islands

A wildlife destination fit for a king – or a thousand.

Adventure Holidays in the Falkland Islands

The Falkland Islands boasts crystal-clear air, haunting landscapes, phosphorescent night skies and wildlife to rival even the Galapagos. The rock-strewn beaches and rugged cliffs are teeming with bird and marine life, untroubled by curious crowds. It’s no wonder the islands have starred in more than one Attenborough film; this isolated landscape offers the chance for the kind of wildlife encounters many dream about but few ever get to experience.

The absence of visitors have made the hundreds of thousands of island penguins amazingly unwary: here you can witness colonies of comic, tiny and inquisitive Gentoo penguins, Rockhopper families leaping and preening, bizarre burrowing Jackass penguins and the noble King Penguins in black tie. With soft white swan-like feathers and an enormous wingspan of up to 2.5 metres, the gentle Black Browed Albatross are the real wildlife treasure of The Falklands. Rarely seen outside these islands - which boast at least 80% of the world’s nesting population – they glide along the cliff tops in silent, effortless and graceful flight, sometimes coming so close as to brush your hair with the tips of their wings.
