Falkland Islands

Falkland Islands holidays

Introduction

The Falklands, off the coast of Argentina in the South Atlantic Ocean are a United Kingdom Overseas Territory. The site of conflict between the two countries in 1982, they remain contested.

Most people arrive on a cruise ship, possibly on a cruise to Antarctica, and moor at the main town Stanley, on East Falkland. Other communities include Goose Green, where there are several remnants of the war and Port Howard, a 200,000-acre sheep farm on West Falkland.

Visitors come to explore the scenic beauty of the two main islands and scattered other islets. Five species of penguin, four species of seal and numerous bird species including albatross, petrels, hawks and ducks make their home here. Porpoises, dolphins and occasionally whales are spotted offshore.
