Falkland Islands Travel Guide
You never forget your first rockhopper penguin. These small but incredibly feisty birds seem to epitomize the Falkland Islands, being tough yet beautiful, rugged but characterful, and full of surprises. Those of us who watched the Falklands War on TV probably never dreamt that we could one day travel to these remote islands, also a gateway for South Georgia and the Antarctic. Whether you are interested in wildlife, people, photography, walking or wilderness, discover the best places to see with our online Falkland Islands travel guide.
