Places to visit in the Falkland Islands
The Falkland Islands won’t appeal to everyone, and therein lies their appeal. If you’re drawn to this sparsely populated, wind-whipped archipelago, you’re in good company: our specialists have explored much of this sub-Antarctic hinterland. They’ll tell you where to go in the Falklands for some of the most close-up wildlife viewing on the planet. Then they’ll help you craft a trip that takes in the achingly wild, roadless landscapes — one of the Falkland Islands’ main attractions.
From Stanley, the capital, you might head to Volunteer Point to walk among a colony of some 400 king penguins, or stumble across elephant seals in the tussac grass of Carcass Island. Port Howard offers some of the world’s best fly fishing, while Bleaker Island promises remoteness of a kind most people will never know.
