The Falklands can look like something out of a particularly moody landscape painting, with unpeopled, melancholic, unforgiving terrain. Outside the capital, Stanley, roads disappear in vast tussock grasslands, sphagnum bogs, dunes, boulder fields and a wind-beaten coastline. Then there’s the wildlife. You can walk among some of the world’s healthiest penguin colonies — species include gentoo, Magellanic, rockhopper and king. Our specialists can craft a Falkland Islands holiday that sees you exploring wetlands sheltering all kinds of endemic waterbirds while black-browed albatrosses soar overhead.

You can also observe elephant seals at close quarters, spot whales and dolphins, and retreat from the modern world altogether in ‘camp’ (the Falklands countryside). And, for some visitors, the Falkland Islands are inextricably linked with the British-Argentinian conflict of the 1980s, and you can also choose to visit sites such as Darwin and Goose Green on a tailor-made Falkland Islands trip.
