A wildlife destination fit for a king – or a thousand.

Adventure Holidays in the Falkland Islands

A holiday to the Falkland Islands is a wildlife holiday heaven; with crystal-clear air, haunting landscapes, phosphorescent night skies and wildlife to rival even the Galapagos. The rock-strewn beaches and rugged cliffs are teeming with bird and marine life, untroubled by curious crowds. It’s no wonder the islands have starred in more than one Attenborough film; this isolated landscape offers the chance for the kind of wildlife encounters many dream of but few ever get to experience. 

The absence of visitors have made the hundreds of thousands of island penguins amazingly unwary: you can get right up close to comic, tiny and inquisitive Gentoo colonies, leaping and preening Rockhopper families, bizarre burrowing Jackass penguins and the noble King Penguins in black tie, huddled on egg duty or marching in procession towards the ocean. With soft white swan-like feathers and an enormous wing span of up to 2.5 metres, the gentle Black Browed Albatross are the real wildlife treasure of The Falklands. Rarely seen outside these islands - which boast at least 80% of the world’s nesting population – they glide along the cliff tops in silent, effortless and graceful flight, sometimes coming so close as to brush your hair with the tips of their wings.
