Falkland Islands Circumnavigation, 11 – 17 February 2015
Steppes Travel is proud to be one of the few tour operators offering a circumnavigation of the Falklands. Needless to say, the Southern Ocean can be a hostile place and sailing a small expedition yacht in these unpredictable waters is not for everyone. However, this voyage is the embodiment of 'travel beyond the ordinary', adrenaline adventure and the chance to see some truly wild and spectacular places.
The small expedition yacht carries a maximum of 7 passengers and 2 crew and with its size comes the advantage of accessing the archipelago's most remote and rugged areas that bigger ships and land based tours cannot.
There will also be plenty of time to explore the Falklands on foot, accessing landing sites by an aluminium hulled inflatable tender. Here there is an abundance of wildlife such as Gentoo penguins, Magellanic penguins, Rockhopper penguins and the world's largest colony of Black Browed Albatrosses, and the chance to visit the poignant war memorials and historic battlefields of the Falklands War.
