Located 300 miles from the coast of Argentina
with vast open spaces and pristine beaches,
the Falkland Islands are home to a fascinating
array of animal and plant life. In this unpolluted
environment in the South Atlantic, visitors can
encounter five species of penguin as well as
elephant seal, sea lion and a host of southern
ocean bird species. Discover the interesting
and often turbulent history of the Falklands
on a journey to these welcoming islands.
The Falklands can be visited as a part of an
Antarctic voyage or accessed on its own, either

or on a direct charter flight from RAF Brize
Norton in Oxfordshire. Accommodation is in
small hotels and lodges, and travel is by land
and small aircraft with the Falkland Islands
Government Air Service (FIGAS), providing
excellent views of the coastline.
