Welcome to the Falkland Islands (Malvinas), an archipelago teeming with wildlife and featuring beautiful scenery, white sand beaches and vast open spaces. As one of 12 passengers aboard the small exploration boat Hans Hansson, you’ll visit places larger boats don’t venture to, and explore the biodiversity of East and West Falkland from sea and land. Visit islands with no predatory species, where small bird populations thrive as a result. Take a hike and see elephant seals, southern sea lions, southern giant petrel, and gentoo and Magellanic penguins. Once back on board, recount your adventures, dine family style with the Captain and crew and savor the local knowledge they share, making your trip a once in a lifetime adventure!
