      Which airline(s) fly to the Falkland Islands from LAX? Can I fly into Port Stanley or do I need to fly into Mt Pleasant? Is renting a car easy when I arrive? Can you suggest easy to moderate walkling tours? Thanks for your help!

      When to go?

      Falkland Islands Mar 13, 2014 at 9:25 AM

      I would like to know when the "off", none touristy season is in the Falkland's is. Are businesses still open for the most most part, or does it shut down like in Alaska when the tourist leave? Lastly, as an intrepid backpacker, will I be able to get around by hitching a ride, or are their cars to rent? I imagine a bus service in the Falkland's is not very practical.

      Thanks in advance!

      We'll be calling at Port Stanley this November. I know that the Falklands have a good variety of types of penguins. Can anyone tell me where I can see different breeds? (I believe there are Magellan, Rockhopper, and King penguins?)

      Falkland Islands Jan 9, 2010 at 7:22 PM

      I will be in Fort Stanley for 1 day in March on a ship tour. One of the tours involves a bus ride followed by a 4 wheel drive vehicle over peaty land, not recommended for people with back issues. Does anyone know how long the 4 wheel drive portion of the trip is, as I have some back problems, but could stand it if it wasn't too long. Thanks

    • One Day in Port Stanley, Falkland Islands

      Falkland Islands Dec 30, 2007 at 5:52 AM

      We are four adults who will be one full day (8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.) in Port Stanley while on a Cruise in February.

      Does anyone have any reocmmendations of sites to see, are cabs available for hire, and are they very expensive? Can we do the penguin colonies independently?

      What should one not miss? Is there a local sightseeing company anyone can recommend?

    • Which cove?

      Falkland Islands Jan 6, 2007 at 9:17 PM


      I'll be in Port Stanley for 9 hours on Feb 5 as part of a cruise. I'm very interested to see some of the penguins. There are two tours on offer, one to Bluff Cove and one to Sparrow Cove, both of about the same duration (3 hrs. approx.) Is there a real difference between these two coves and if so, which one would you suggest to go to?

    • Stanley tour options

      Stanley Nov 15, 2004 at 1:33 PM

      We arrive in Stanley at 8am on 27 DEC 04 via Princess cruise. A VT member recommended a shore excursion on her cruise for USD35 to see King Penguins. Princess is charging USD99/pp for a Bluff Cove visit. Their tour is described as a 3-hour tour... 30 minute bus then 30 minute 4WD across private land to see the rookery. This sounds very expensive to us. I am an airline employee and our trip is possible for us financially because we are travelling "standby" at a greatly reduced industry rate. Is it possible to arrange for an affordable local tour to see the Penguins? Is it possible to arrange for a local guide to show us the area.. off the beaten path with local color, including the Penguins? We are considerably younger than the other passengers on the cruise and don't relish traveling with a group of seniors.

    • What British Food is available in the Falklands ?

      Falkland Islands Oct 25, 2004 at 1:03 PM

      What British food is available in the Falklands ? I presume that there must be since there are forces based there, but is this all within the base, or is it available generally on the island ? If it's not generally available do you think people would buy it if it was reasonably priced ? - Sorry, this is really a fact finding mission for my business, but information like this is difficult to get.

    • Aimless wandering?

      Falkland Islands Oct 13, 2004 at 5:21 PM

      I suppose this is for Zweiblumen again. OK if there are no official tours for non-military personnel how much independent touring can you do on the islands. For example , could I just casually wander around Mt. Longdon to have a look at the old gun and take pictures of it. Are areas cordoned off/ patroled by the army etc..? Also do the locals mind being asked about the war? Thanks R.
