Volunteer Point, Falkland Islands

A bumpy three-hour journey by 4WD across rolling moors brings you to Volunteer Point, home to the world’s largest accessible colony of king penguins.

Here, you step into a world where the white sandy beach, rolling hills, lagoon and the pebble shore belong to the penguins; you are a guest that they tolerate (along with the local geese and sheep) as they go about their daily life of breeding, protecting and feeding their young, and playing with each other in sociable groups.

King Penguins

Take a seat on the grass to observe the endearingly comical sight of what appear to be balls of brown fluff with feet. These are the young king penguins in their downy adolescence, before they moult to reveal their sophisticated black and white coats with distinctive amber neck markings.
