Chile and the Falklands Wildlife Holiday: Penguins and albatrosses

14 days from £5,731pp
 

Private Journey

 
The Falkland Islands lie off the coast of Argentina in the South Atlantic. However, very few people know about the wilderness beauty of this remote island archipelago in the South Atlantic Ocean. The islands have an unpolluted environment with vast open spaces and white sand beaches. A huge variety of wildlife has adopted the Falkland Islands as their home: the bird and animal population (sheep, and penguins) outnumber the human inhabitants by 10-1. At least 5 species of penguin are found on the Falkland Islands and elephant seals, sea-lions and seals, an abundance of birds and minke and killer whales can be spotted here. The islanders remain British in outlook and descent, adhering to British laws and buying British goods.

Most travellers to the Falklands visit for only a day or two as part of a cruise. Our holiday includes a whole week discovering the highlights of the islands. We’ll take you to Port Stanley, the capital, which looks like a small English town fifty years ago. The remains of ships abandoned 100 years ago are still to be seen in the coves, testament to an era when the islands were a safe haven when all ships passed this way before the Panama Canal opened. You’ll also travel to rural outposts by road and light aircraft.

 The holiday also features a few days in Chilean Patagonia the vicinity of Torres del Paine National Park, exploring this true wilderness where just a few rough roads cut through a frost-bitten landscape of glaciers, luminous lagoons, icy pinnacles and wind-strafed steppe.
