Best Places to Visit in Falkland Islands

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.

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?

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.

For more info on the Falklands check out our blog post:

Trekking on the Falkland Islands

The Falkland Islands must surely be considered amongst the best places in the world in which to walk. With such a sparse human population it is rare to meet anyone else outside Stanley. This is the essence of the walking experience, choose your own company then enjoy a very personal relationship with just the wilderness and wildlife.

Giant Albatrosses in the Falkland Islands (Antarctica Travel Vlog Ep17)

The Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas) are the last stop on my Antarctic journey. The sweeping shorelines are nesting grounds for black-browed albatrosses and imperial shags.

I am so excited to see the islands but feel bittersweet knowing I’ll soon be saying goodbye to our polar expedition ship “the Vavilov”, its crew, and all the new friends I’ve met onboard.

I don’t know if words can explain the joy I felt being at the bottom of the Earth. Going to Antarctica was a trip of a lifetime for me and a dream for many years. Thank YOU for coming along!

Falkand Places, at Falkland, Scotland..this video 10 minuets long.

????Hi everyone welcome and thank you for reading hope everyone is fine xox
Here is about Falkland Places..

Falkland was the country retreat of the Stewart kings and queens of Scotland, located within easy reach of Edinburgh, yet far enough distant to provide a welcome escape. Here the royal court could indulge in hawking and hunting, plus more genteel recreations like archery. Falkland boasts the oldest real (or 'royal') tennis court in the world, built in 1539 for James V.

HISTORY:
Falkland began as a hunting lodge owned by the Macduff Thanes of Fife as early as the 12th century. Evidence of a 14th century fortalice (a small fort or outwork) has been uncovered in the palace grounds. The fortalice and much of associated hunting lodge were destroyed by the English in 1337, but the tower was rebuilt. In 1371 Robert Stewart, Duke of Albany, took control of Falkland.

Albany was the most powerful man in the kingdom, a ruler in all but name. In 1402 he imprisoned his nephew and heir to the throne, the Duke of Rothesay, at Falkland. It was not a gilded cage, as rumour suggests that Albany had the Duke chained in a cellar and starved to death, though the official version is that he died after a mysterious - and rather convenient - illness.

When Albany finally fell from power in 1424 Falkland was seized by the crown. James II converted the keep into a suite of comfortable apartments for his wife, Mary of Gueldres. James III expanded the complex of buildings, and was given to writing poetry on retreats to the palace.

James IV added a Great Hall to act as the centrepiece for entertaining and state occasions, but the present palatial grandeur of Falkland was down to James V, who called in masons from Europe to transform the earlier buildings into a Renaissance palace in the French style.

James must have had mixed feelings about Falkland, for as a young man he was imprisoned here by his chief aide, Archibald 6th Earl of Douglas. The young king managed a daring escape, dressed as a groom. It seems that the episode did not stop James from caring for the Palace; he lavished money on Falkland, adding the great twin-towered gatehouse that now serves as the main visitor entrance, and making it the rival of any great stately home in Europe. James died at Falkland, following his defeat against the English at the Battle of Solway Moss in 1542.

Mary, Queen of Scots used Falkland Palace as a retreat from the censorious gaze of Protestant Edinburgh. She came to hawk, hunt, ride, and play tennis.

When Mary's son James went south to take the English throne in 1603 Falkland became less important as a royal retreat. Charles I and II each visited, but only briefly. In 1654 Cromwell's soldiers burned the Great Hall and inflicted heavy damage to the rest of the palace buildings. It was left to the 3rd Marquis of Bute, Hereditary Keeper of the Palace, to restore Falkland in the late 19th century. He created apartments for himself in the south range, and his son rebuilt James V's chapel royal.????❤️????
