  • The tour leaves from the center of the Falkland Islands or Falkland, a very charming place, with English colonization, all clean, organized and tidy. Flowers, gardens, school work. We headed with this ride, a van that brings us the colony of Penguins, which are sighted a good distance, but we can see your enchantment, and the way heading to the sea and some come pretty close, I think we got lucky, where we film them so close, there are other birds in the area and the Bay is very pretty, with a cost of $20 per person. The problem was in the back where you can catch any transport of the same company to return, however it was very disorganized, and gave a certain general tumult, until after several requests organized a big queue. Anyway I believe this experience has experienced unforgettable with the penguins.

  • The walk to Gypsy cove takes about 1,5h and it is a good half day activity around Stanley. We saw the Magellanic penguins in the burrows and on the beach and walked up to the hill to see WWII gun.
