Visit Port Howard, Falkland Islands
A working farm, on the edge of Bold Cove on West Falkland, Port Howard is a fascinating introduction to the farming history of the islands.
The FIGAS flight will bring you in over the high ridge that circles the farm and you will soon be tucking into the hearty ’smoko’ (tea and cake break) that is typical of the Falklands.
You may be here at the right time to see some of the sheep shearing gangs hard at work, while other possible excursions include fishing trips and 4WD outings to some of the nearby wildlife sites, or a game of golf (carefully avoiding the well-marked minefields) on the course behind the farm.
