Falkland Islands & Chile 

Unsurpassed walks and wildlife in one of the world’s most remote places

Clear blue waves rolling in on an endless white sandy beach. A gaggle of penguins waddle over to you with mild curiosity. Later, on a wind swept mountain top, marks of respect to those who lost lives here fill every crevice and niche. A glance out to sea, a black fin disappears under the waves as a sea lion breaks the water and is gone. Hunter and hunted. Nature raw in tooth and claw.

We fly from London to Santiago in Chile with a quick sightsee around the city and overnight before continuing via Punta Arenas, 1,300 miles south and onwards to the Falklands.

We have a week here to take in the best of the wild country and wildlife spotting. We’ll see four species of penguins, sea lions and fur seals and innumerable kinds of sea birds. Here, wildlife often comes close to you, so the photo opportunities are endless. We are based in Stanley and have much to see: the sites of the conflict of 1982, the remains of the field kitchens and gun emplacements on Mt Tumbledown behind Stanley, a site of some fierce fighting during the campaign, is another important location and well known to many of us.

We fly to Sea Lion Island for two nights, one of the best places in the world to get away from it all. Other than hotel staff and the huge diversity of wildlife, we will have the island to ourselves. Look out for orcas off shore.

Our walking will take us to beaches deserted except for the penguins and over open moorland. From the hills and particularly the inter island flights we can enjoy fantastic views across the islands. This is a land of big skies and wide horizons. The Falkland Islands will stay in your memory long after you have left. Travelling back to Chile and Santiago we have a bonus day in the mountains before our flight home.
