Located in the far southern reaches of the Atlantic Ocean and some 640 kms east of Tierra del Fuego, the Falkland Islands are a remote archipelago consisting of two principal islands (East and West Falkland) along with over 700 smaller islands.
This is a world of remote islands, pristine beaches, fabulous scenery and an impressive variety of wildlife. The bird life here is incredible including seven species of penguin, albatross and the very rare striated Caracara. The marine life is equally abundant with sea lion colonies, the comical elephant seals and Killer whales are often spotted.
The islands also bear witness to the conflict of 1982 and there are a number of beautiful memorials to those who were lost during the Falklands War.
