Pebble Island, Falkland Islands

A lovely place for hiking and wildlife spotting in the day and relaxing and enjoying the cosy lodge in the evening, Pebble Island boasts a fine array of noisy penguin colonies, where it has been known for visitors to see six different species of penguin in a single day.


This is a great place to spend hours immersed in the dynamics of penguin society. Take a seat on a nearby rock to watch the sociable rockhoppers leave their nests, gather in little groups, and set off in their comical gait for the perilous trip down the cliffs to the sea.

Once their hard day’s fishing and feeding is done they have a little play in a rock pool at the foot of the cliffs (safe from their predators that lurk in the ocean), before hopping back up the cliffs and home.
