Reasons To Visit The Falkland Islands

Comprised of two main islands located around 500 km from South America, the Falkland Islands have incredible natural landscapes and many outdoor possibilities, although the country also offers cultural and historical attractions. Many visitors to the country come for its amazing wildlife and birdwatching possibilities, while the rugged terrain across the islands are perfect for hiking and trekking enthusiasts. The country is very sparsely populated with the capital Stanley home to only 2,000 people, so you can expect to find very peaceful and charming settlements amidst nature around the islands. Within the capital Stanley there are many attractions well worth visiting like the Falkland Islands Museum, or you can venture out of the city to the fascinating Gypsy Cove which is home to many penguins.

Arriving In The Falkland Islands

The only airport serving the Falkland Islands is RAF Mount Pleasant which is located around 50 km away from the capital Stanley.

When you have landed at the airport there are taxis available which can take you where you need to go, while there are also shuttle buses available which can take you into the capital Stanley.
