Other Activities to Add
to the Adventure
The Falklands archipelago is teeming with wonders of nature and wildlife; an unpolluted environment with fantastically clear blue skies, seamless horizons, vast open spaces and stunning white sandy beaches. The Islands are a natural paradise with tiny settlements nestling in many miles of open spaces, fascinating rivers of rock, seas of brilliant aqua greens and silvery blues.
The Falkland Islands are one of the best places in the world for wildlife watching. With just a few exceptions, there are no barriers between watcher and wildlife. Penguins, seals, sea lions and whales are all abundant around the islands.
