    Falklands

    Travel to the Falkland Island

    Hardly anyone comes to the Falkland Islands for a beach vacation. Anyone who travels here to the South Atlantic is looking for the harsh beauty of nature. If you come to the south, put on your cap and be a guest among 500,000 penguins.

    An eldorado for penguin fans

    Rock-penguins are the punks among the birds of the Falklands; a mop of recalcitrant feathers adorns the head, in addition a golden-colored strip over and two further tufts of gold behind the eyes. A juicy red beak in the face - this is how a tailcoat-wearer becomes a trendsetter.

    The Falklands of course offer a home to other penguins too, half a million are said to be spread out here: Magellanic penguins, gentoo penguins and even king penguins breed here. And king penguins do not carry their name by chance; they are about one meter tall and weigh almost 20 kilograms. What all species have in common is that they don't really care about you as a visitor.

    The Bird World of the Falkland Islands

    However, penguins are not the only remarkable birds of the Falklands: Skuas, seagulls, albatrosses, cormorant live in more or less quiet unity side by side. Their breeding colonies lie on the rocks, the meadows and generously supply the land with guano. Only at easily inclined slopes, none of the birds roams around or even builds a nest; because here, the launch pads of the albatrosses lie. They need the momentum. All of them find plenty of food in the fish-rich waters around the Falklands. Or they live on the offspring of its feathered neighbors.
