These are the ultimate in Antarctic voyages, exploring the Falklands & South Georgia
The remote Falkland Archipelago is located 560 km off the coast of South America, comprised of East and West Falkland plus a number of other islands.
The only town in the Falklands is Port Stanley which has the feel of a remote outpost and a population of around 2,000 people. The entire archipelago abounds with land and sea bird species, including Magellanic, Gentoo and Rockhopper Penguins and sometimes King Penguins, as well as over 70% of the world’s Black-browed Albatross. More than 227 species of bird have been identified in the Falklands, including five different species of penguins. The cold surrounding waters are full of whales, dolphins and sea lions, while the beaches are visited by breeding fur and elephant seals. Much of the Falklands’ wildlife is tame and approachable, which makes for incredible viewing.
