Our next two days are spent exploring the Falkland Islands, one of the last untamed areas on the Earth. Full of ruggedly beautiful landscapes, the Falklands consist of two main islands and hundreds of smaller ones, collectively home to an incredible array of wildlife including King penguins and albatrosses. As we make our way to shore, we pass an old shipwreck, then spend time mingling with penguins, seals and elephant seals. One site we’ll visit during our time here is Port Stanley, the capital of the Falkland Islands. Having just come from Antarctica, Stanley is a surreal contrast but a delight to explore on foot; this peaceful town looks just like a miniature England, with its red phone boxes, red buses, and English pubs. Another landing site is West Point Island, located in the northwest corner of West Falkland. A working sheep farm with a spectacular cliff-filled coastline, this island is home to numerous species of plants, birds and marine mammals, from black-browed albatross to Rockhopper penguins.
While we are here, you can join several excursions like history tours, bird watching tours, nature walks, and even a scenic plane tour where you can discover the Falklands by air in a classic island-hopping aircraft.
Please note: Possible landing sites are subject to weather conditions and are at the discretion of the captain and crew. Itinerary is subject to change.
