Falkland Islands - Travel Information
Whether you are looking for adventure or seeking quieter pleasures, the Falklands are a great place to relax and unwind. From personal encounters of the wildlife kind, to wilderness trout fishing, hiking and self-exploration to guided tours of key cultural and historic sites we invite you to discover all the Falklands has on offer. The Falkland Islands are one of the last untouched wildlife wonders of the World. Unspoiled beaches, islands and cliffs provide a natural safe-haven for hundreds of species that have made the Falklands their home.
Watch albatross soar gracefully through the air against a backdrop of beautiful blue sea and sky, elephant seals sparring on the beach, the tiny Cobb's wren hopping along the shoreline, killer whales circling offshore in pursuit of a meal or sit patiently alongside king penguins and wait for the fluffy chicks to come and take a look at you! The possibilities for enjoying the wildlife experience are endless, as are the photographic opportunities. But there is more to the Islands than wildlife. Join in with the World's most southerly marathon, play a challenging game of golf, hike across hills for panoramic views or fish for sea trout in the estuaries, rivers and streams. Exploring "camp", the name given to anywhere outside the Islands' capital Stanley, is a "must" for any visitor.
If this pace sounds too hectic, simply relax in the comfort of the Islands' hotels, farm houses and lodges. Experience the Falkland way of life on a small island, farm or in Stanley. Discover the history of the Falklands; from the geological perspective of the "stone runs" or through the evidence of human discovery, maritime travel and, of course, the conflict of 1982. Stroll around the shops in Stanley and taste the delights of Falkland food in a restaurant, hotel or public bar.
