When Do You Want To Go?

The Falkland Islands attract more people than you might think. The perfect surroundings, incredible wildlife and intriguing history and culture make for an unforgettable trip.

To start planning your holiday to the Falklands, get in touch with us.

The islands are home to more than one million penguins and half a million sheep, but they also have sizeable populations of sea lions, elephant seals, dolphins and killer whales. This means that you will be able to spot species like - Magellanic penguins, Gentoo penguins, king penguins, white-tufted grebes, rock cormorants, black-crowned night-herons, upland geese, ruddy-headed geese, Falkland steamer ducks, crested ducks, turkey vultures, crested caracaras, hawks, peregrine falcons, Magellanic oystercatchers,  blackish oystercatchers, two-banded plovers, white-rumped sandpipers, South American terns, barn owls, hawks, dolphins, sei whales, southern sea lions, and so many more. And when it comes to plants, there are also a few interesting ones as in the islands you will be able to find - Fuegian saxifrages, gaudichaud’s orchids, gorses, orange hawkweeds, scurvy grass, vanilla daisies, as well as pale yellow maidens.

If there is one thing that we can promise you is that while on the Falkland Islands you will never run out of things to do. You can explore as much as you want, whether you want to fish, trek, hike, climb, kayak, mountain bike; or take your time and enjoy the islands at your own pace, you will never be bored here.

Encompassing more than 740 islands this little treasure is in the south Atlantic Ocean, 483km (300mi) off the coast of South America. The Falklands islands have been a British Overseas Territory since 1833 and are heavily influenced by British culture. This is easily spotted in the currency, the Falkland Island’s pound; the spoken language, English; even the islands’ name, ‘Falklands’ sounds distinctively Scottish, if that wasn’t enough, in Stanley, you will see red post boxes. Apart from a minority of Scandinavian descendants (whose ancestors were whalers in the 19th century), most people living in the archipelago (known as the “Kelpers”) come from families with English roots. All of this within a population of no more than 3,000 inhabitants.  
Another proof of the island's character is Stanley, the capital, which looks like a small English village mixed with a port town.

Even though the Falklands War left its mark on the archipelago, that doesn’t make this destination any less beautiful. Memorials have been built as a tribute to those who died in the war, and you can even do a battlefield tour which will take you through the most important battles of the short conflict.

The sites include - the Argentine and British Cemeteries and memorials; the HMS Coventry Memorial; Mount Harriet where many positions and remnants of Argentine equipment can be seen; Fitzroy where you can view Welsh Guards and RFA memorials; and many others depending on your preference.

What you may find most remarkable about the islands, isn’t just their human story, but their incredible surroundings. From white sandy beaches to clear turquoise waters and incredible wildlife. These are among the myriad of reasons why people are so curious and eager to visit the Falkland Islands. With an abundance of native and migratory wildlife that includes over 230 species of birds and 14 species of marine mammals - this is a natural paradise.

Whatever you decide to do, there is one thing which you won’t be able to control- that you will fall in love with these incredible islands the very moment you set foot on them.
