Falkland Islands | A Journey to the Bottom of the Earth

Come along on a journey to the bottom of the earth on my two week trip to the Falkland Islands. I assembled this video to show you what I saw and hopefully, I can make you feel, at least a little bit, the way I did when leaving the Falklands.

And for those of you who might not know that much about the Falkland Islands, I also added a real brief history of the islands and a little bit about the Falklands War.

The Falkland Islands are one of those rare places left where you can escape the modern world. Located 300 miles to the east of the bottom tip of South America. Their remote location has left the Falklands a place for one of a kind wildlife encounters.

Of all the places we’ve visited in recent years the Falklands are unlike any of the others – and I think that is was what I grew to love about the Falklands the most.

How British Are THE FALKLAND ISLANDS?



Red Telephone Booths? English Speaking? Fish 'n Chips?

That's the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas) in a nutshell -- THEY ARE SHOCKINGLY BRITISH, more so than anywhere I've been in Great Britain. I cannot tell you how bizarre it is to be 8,000 miles away from the U.K., and feel this strong of a British influence in the small archipelago called the Falkland Islands.

As many of you may know, the history of the Falkland Islands is complicated and bloody... The sovereignty of the islands is part of an ongoing dispute between the U.K. and nearby Argentina, as it was fought out over a brutal 10-week war in 1982, which ultimately led to Argentina surrendering. The conflict still exists today, more than you might imagine.

I made this video to teach you a little about the history of the Falkland Islands, as well as show you some things I've discovered and learned over the last 3 days I spent here with Hurtigruten. Have I mentioned that the nature and wildlife in the Falkland Islands is breathtaking?!

Just out of curiosity -- did you already know about the British influence of the Falkland Islands? Or is this all news to you?

Best Places to Visit in Falkland Islands
Covering an area of around 7,500 square kilometers in the southern part of the Atlantic Ocean, the Falkland Islands - Islas Malvinas to the Argentinians - encompass some 778 islands. Despite the fact they're only 483 kilometers off the coast of Argentina and 12,000 kilometers from England, the islands are a British Overseas Territory. The two largest islands in the archipelago, West Falkland and East Falkland, are where you'll find the majority of this tiny country's 3,000 or so residents (most of them of British descent).
Despite its remote location - or perhaps because of it - these cold, hilly islands attract a surprising number of tourists. Served by direct flights from the UK and South America, as well as visited by many cruise ships, the Falklands are perfectly situated to tap into the growing demand for tourists visiting the Antarctic. The Falklands' main attraction is undoubtedly its wildlife; it boasts numerous species of birds and marine mammals, along with a number of great tour options that will get you up close to them. Other popular Falkland Island activities include fishing, trekking, hiking, climbing, kayaking, and mountain biking.

Best Places: The Falkland Islands and their wildlife

We have reached the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas) on our way to the Antarctic. We landed in Stanley, New Island, West Point Island, Carcass-Island and Sounders-Island. In the short excerpt from my Antarctic film I show some special animal shots of albatrosses, Rockhopper Penguins, Magellanic Penguins, Gentoo Penguins and of course the impressive King Penguins. Because all these animals live well protected on the Falkland Islands. With comments in German. More about it also in German (travelogue and numerous pictures) at

Tour Guide Tales - Falkland Palace’s Sunken Treasure

Due to the current circumstances only the gardens will be open this year.

Falkland Palace & Garden is a beautifully restored renaissance palace in Fife, which features a picturesque formal garden, as well as one of Britain’s oldest tennis courts. The palace was once the country residence of the Royal Stuarts, and was adored by Mary Queen of Scots herself. Come along and admire the spectacular architecture, learn about the centuries old carvings, paintings and furniture, marvel at the magnificent Chapel Royal, and enjoy a guided tour where you can delve in deeper.

Within the chapel, learn about the intricate details of the ceiling, which dates from the early 1500s during the reign of James IV, and was painted in 1633 for a visit of Charles 1; he stayed here in Falkland Palace for five nights whilst on a tour of Scotland following his coronation at Holyrood Abbey.

When travelling from palace to palace, the Royal party would take all the best furniture and household effects along with them. All of these effects had been loaded onto the baggage boats as they set off from Burntisland towards Leith at high tide. Not long after they set sail, a sudden squall got up and this caused one of the boats to sink. The boat is still under the Firth of Forth – should it ever be raised it will be like Scotland’s Mary Rose – with possibly many surviving items which will further help us understand the Royal Household and its belongings.
