Falkland Islands Expedition: Past & Present

Falkland Islands Expedition: Past & Present

The windswept moors and meadows of this remote birders haven hold plenty of history both natural and human. Small and sparsely populated, this Antarctic neighbour has nonetheless remained the source of numerous sovereignty disputes, most famously the tragic Falklands War of 1982. This 8-day trip is one for the wildlife and history buffs. See crags dotted with sea birds and war memorials, explore beaches covered with king and gentoo penguins, trek sprawling nature reserves edging on outpost towns, and walk the battlegrounds from the war of 1982.

Holiday Highlights

  • Get right up close to king, gentoo and magellanic penguins on the beach.
  • Explore various Falklands War battle sites and get a sense of the scope of the conflict synonymous with the islands.
  • Discover the surreal British outpost that is Stanley – complete with pubs and an Anglican cathedral.
  • Pay your respects at Argentine and British Cemeteries, as well as the makeshift memorials that are scattered around East Falkland.
