Falkland Islands

Though next door to South America and Antarctica, the Falklands are British through and through, with peat fires burning in every hearth and teatimes to set your clock by. Located northeast of Cape Horn, the Falklands Islands (also known as Islas Malvinas) are the most easily accessible sub-Antarctic islands. Their off-the-beaten-track location and intriguing history make for a unique destination. A rough stone road has been built most of the way to Gypsy Cove now, and vehicles may be available for private tours. Visits to Cape Pembroke Lighthouse or to some of the battlefield sites may also be possible.
