This extended tour covers the key wildlife sites of these stunning islands. Many of the bids and mammals have little fear of man and so you will experience superb encounters and exceptional photographic opportunities with the 5 penguin species, black-browed albatross, various raptors and host of mammals which include elephant seal, southern sea lion, Peale’s and Commerson’s dolphins and killer whale, to name a few. You will be hosted by the respective residents/owners of each island you visit, and they will advise you on the best sites to visit at each location. Transfers between islands are with Falkland Islands Government Air Service (FIGAS)*. The short flights of 15-45 minutes afford breath-taking aerial views of the landscape and photographers will again be in their element. Whilst in the capital, Port Stanley, you will visit some historical sites including ship-wrecks in the harbour and the San Carlos battlefield.

Optional Extensions
