Friendly and well-run guesthouse on an almost uninhabited island that will impress and delight wildlife lovers.
A low-rise building of wood and corrugated iron, embattled against the elements, Sealion Lodge is a friendly and well-run guesthouse on an almost uninhabited island that will impress and delight wildlife lovers. Colonies of rockhopper, king, gentoo and Magellanic penguins cohabit with enormous elephant seals, killer whales patrol the seas and a vast range of sea birds can be sighted all around the lodge.
It's a small island that can be explored on foot in its entirety; on arrival guests are taken on an introductory tour to point out the principal areas of interest. Accommodation is simple but sufficient and there is a well-stocked honesty bar, library and lounge with views of a nearby penguin rookery.
What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
On our first Falkland island - Bleaker - the property owner and her son met us at the airstrip and gave us an excellent orientation tour which enabled us to walk it on our own the next day (after they'd kindly got a couple of their staff to drop us at the far starting point) - and see lots of penguins. The helicopter tour we did to Volunteer Point from Stanley was fantastic - both the private helicopter ride and the 3 hours we spent at the amazing king penguin colony there.JL, Southend
Most memorable was getting to meet the Falklanders and listen to their chat about past history and way of life. Landscape and wildlife unique.IR, Holywood
