Falkland Islands holidays by Cox & Kings

This remote archipelago, with an intriguing and turbulent history, can be visited as part of an Antarctic voyage or on its own from Chile.

Vast open spaces and pristine shorelines are home to a fascinating array of sub-Antarctic life, including elephant seals, rockhopper, king, gentoo, Magellanic and macaroni penguins, and a host of Southern Ocean bird species.

Highlights include Sea Lion and Pebble Island, the small capital of Stanley with brightly painted houses, and Saunders Island, with its sizable colony of black-browed albatrosses.
