We took a 4WD tour to Volunteer Point and had no idea how exciting the trip would be. Our driver was a charming young local mother who does the tours out of absolute passion for the Falklands. We drove out of Stanley in a convoy...More

Maybe thousands? Too many to count. Patrick Watts had four other drivers and great, comfortable vehicles. We rode in a Toyota Land Cruiser with leather seats. It's an 11 mile trip over the bog to get from the farm to the beach at Volunteer Point....More

This is a simply must do trip but you you need to be hardy & tough as bumping around going cross country can be uncomfortable to say the least as you go across bog and moor for over 45 minutes. However, see these amazing penguins...More

Visiting Volunteer Point to see King Penguins was a "must do", for me, if we could dock at the Falkland Islands, on our recent South America Antarctica cruise. Jimmy Curtis exceeded expectations. While we were delighted to see the King, Gentoo and Magellan penguins, and...More
