    Going far off the beaten path is a boon for wildlife watchers. The islands 400 miles off the mainland are a fantastic place to find amazing creatures. Penguins are quite plentiful in the Falkland Islands , as are sea lions, elephant islands, and plenty of shorebirds.

    Have you been here? Do you have a favorite animal sighting?

    It would take a lot of work to get here, but you would be richly rewarded. Tour companies can take you to the best places to see wildlife or you could explore on your own. I think it would be really cool to see penguins up close and other examples of Falkland Islands wildlife.

    Falklands War

    the Falklands is such a sensitive issue now that the UK and Argentina are embroil in such a bitter dispute. Last I know, Argentina banned two British cruise ships from calling at one of its ports after they visited the Falkland Islands.

    one thing for sure, winter in the Falklands is not the best time of year to view the Islands' wildlife. To give you an idea of the wildlife in the Falklands, you can watch albatross, elephant seals, killer whales, King Penguins, etc. The possibilities for enjoying the wildlife experience are endless, as are the photographic opportunities.
