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. Find the best places to visit with our list of the top-rated tourist attractions in the Falkland Islands.

The Falkland Islands

Recorded February 18, 2009.

The Falkland Islands are an archipelago in the South Atlantic Ocean, located 300 miles from the coast of Argentina. They consist of two main islands, East Falkland and West Falkland, together with 776 smaller islands. Stanley, on East Falkland, is the capital. The islands are a self-governing Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom.

Stanley (formerly known as Port Stanley) is the capital and only true city in the Falkland Islands. It is located on the isle of East Falkland, on a north-facing slope, south of Stanley Harbour, in one of the wettest parts of the islands. As of the 2006 census, the city had a population of 2,115.

The video begins aboard the Star Princess as we sail into Stanley Harbor in the Falkland Islands. Next there is a tour of the town of Stanley complete with comments from our colorful local guide. Next is a visit to the penguin colony at Gypsy Cove. The video then concludes with our sail away from the Falkland Islands aboard the Star Princess.

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.

OMG GUYS! The last 3 days of my life have been spent in the world's least visited country called Nauru in the Pacific Islands. Have you ever heard of Nauru before? Less than 200 tourists a YEAR visit this tiny-island nation called Nauru of 10,000 residents, and it's a fascinating place.

If you know me, then you'll know that nothing excites me more than visiting obscure places… Nauru is my 155th country, and maybe the most interesting one yet, and I cannot wait to tell you all about it!! PSA: NAURU IS AMAZING!

Falkland Islands Jetty Centre

For many visitors, the Falklands are reached via cruise ships and this shows what you can expect to find when you first arrive at Stanley...friendly people and great experiences waiting for you.

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.

CRAZIEST PLACE WE'VE EVER BEEN! - South Georgia Island Vlog Pt 1

It's been called the greatest wildlife show on earth, and after travelling to South Georgia with One Ocean Expeditions this year we couldn't agree more!

This spectacular and remote island in the subantarctic is home to millions of king penguins, elephant seals, albatross, fur seals and plenty more fascinating species. Visiting South Georgia allows you to get up close with many of these creatures, and the interactions will leave you speechless.

We flew from Punta Arenas in Chile to Stanley on the Falkland Islands to meet up with our Russian research vessel, the Akademik Sergey Vavilov and travelled to South Georgia for 8 days. It was one of the best experiences of our lives.

This is the first part of our South Georgia vlog to show you what it's like to travel to this amazing destination.

Thank you to One Ocean Expeditions for the incredible experience.

Thanks to our clothing sponsors Kathmandu for always keeping us warm, no matter what crazy part of the globe we end up in.

Description

Cook Islands Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia



Situated at the very centre of Polynesia, the Cook Islands is an archipelago nation comprised of 15 islands. It is spread across an area in the South Pacific, three times the size of Texas..


Supremely beautiful, with pristine white sands fringed by coconut palms, the Cook Islands possess a castaway island magic and yet is only a four hour flight from New Zealand.

According to legend, these tiny islands, dotted amongst the vast ocean, were discovered thousands of years ago by the very finest Polynesian seafarers. Guided by the stars and using other sophisticated navigation techniques, they landed their legendary double hulled Vakas and set about creating paradise.

It is a rhythm you’ll feel as soon as you touch down in Raratonga, the largest island in the group.
You could easily drive around this sparkling island in half an hour if you hurry, but that’s the charm of the Cook Islands….. no one does.

It has been almost 250 years since Captain Cook became the first European to discover these islands and yet there is a gentle timelessness that endures here.

Come and discover the generous rhythm and warm hospitality of the Cook Islands for yourself.

Falkland Islands - wildlife and heritage

Watch the three-part Britain's Treasure Islands documentary series on BBC FOUR, starting Tue 12 Apr 2016 21:00. (repeated Wed 13 Apr 2016 20:00).

This mini-documentary explores the wildlife, history and cultures of the Falkland Islands. This UK Overseas Territory is a treasure trove of natural history, with commerson dolphin, enormous elephant seals, penguins and some of the largest albatross colonies on Earth. We follow Charles Darwin's footsteps across the Falklands (for he spent twice as long here as he did in the Galapagos), we find striated caracaras - the most southerly bird of prey. These extraordinary raptors stole items from Charles Darwin and mugged presenter Stewart McPherson whilst filming! While many of the islands of the Falklands archipelago have been impacted by mankind, we visit an island with intact tussock vegetation which enables perhaps the greatest natural wonder of the Falklands; thousands of sooty shearwaters, which return back to their nests en-mass each evening.

This film is one of forty mini-documentaries made from the footage not used in the broadcast series.

Visit to view all 40 mini-documentaries free of charge.

Please note: although complementary to the BBC FOUR series, the 40 short mini-documentaries are not commissioned or editorially overseen by BBC.
