White sands, vast horizons and unfettered access to wildlife
Surrounded by the fertile seas of the South Atlantic Ocean, 300 miles east of Argentinian Patagonia, the Falkland Islands are a true haven for wildlife enthusiasts who want nothing other than to escape to rugged shores with fresh sea breezes... The archipelago's hundreds of islands and islets are scattered with sheep farms and (most famously) abundant birdlife. There are numerous penguin colonies to wander amongst - you will find king, gentoo, rockhopper, magellanic and macaroni penguins - and the wild shores are also home to 70% of the world's population of black-browed albatrosses, known locally as ‘mollymawks’. Take to the seas to spot whales and dolphins, explore Stanley and admire the distinctive architecture, dip into museums to learn about the 1982 Falklands War as well as the natural history, and most of all just enjoy the spectacular scenery that surrounds you.
