The funniest members of the incredibly comedic penguin world are undoubtedly rockhopper penguins in their natural environment. Due to new road construction, visitors to the Falklands now have the chance to view these funny little penguins, rarely found in other locations. Other highlights of the trip include seeing many of the mountains involved in the later stages of the Falklands conflict, as well as being able to view and photograph both the capital, Stanley, and your ship from a distinctive vantage point.

You’ll travel by minibus and take in the main sights of Stanley, then change to 4x4 transportation at Murrell Farm. From here, an experienced overland driver/guide will navigate the terrain en route to the rockhopper penguin colony where wardens will be on hand to offer information and assistance. This is a unique opportunity to take amazing, once-in-a-lifetime photographs and experience the joy these penguins naturally and effortlessly bring to any audience.

There are basic restroom facilities available, as well as refreshments which include tea, coffee and snacks.


Wear sensible shoes. Guests with back, hip or neck and those with mobility limitations are not to participate. Seasonal penguin migration in certain areas might prevent this tour from operating in March and April. It is essential that you wear warm, layered clothing in order to fully enjoy and participate in this excursion. Outer layer should be waterproof and windproof. Bring gloves, a warm hat and a scarf.
