The Galapagos Islands are probably one of the best known – if not the best known – areas for wildlife in its natural and pristine state. With this justifiable fame comes the ever increasing concern of its protection and over exposure as travelers tread the shores of the famous archipelago every year.
Goway believes that they have “discovered” an equally amazing and pristine destination to offer those wanting a “garden of Eden” wildlife experience or for those who have marveled at the Galapagos and are now seeking an equally unspoilt, unique and beautiful destination. This is the Falkland Islands.
Whether your clients are looking for adventure or seeking quieter pleasures, the Falklands are a great place to relax and unwind. From personal encounters of the wildlife kind, to wilderness trout fishing, hiking and self-exploration to guided tours of our key cultural and historic sites – the Falklands has a lot on offer.
The Falkland Islands are one of the last untouched wildlife wonders of the World. Unspoilt beaches, islands and cliffs provide a natural safe-haven for hundreds of species that have made the Falklands their home.
But there is more to the Islands than wildlife. Join in with the World’s most southerly marathon, play a challenging game of golf, hike across hills for panoramic views or fish for sea trout in the estuaries, rivers and streams. Exploring “camp”, the name given to anywhere outside the Islands’ capital Stanley, is a “must” for any visitor.
Travelling around is fun in itself, fly with the Government Air Service in an 8-seater twin-propeller aircraft, charter a boat to explore offshore or hire a guide to overland in a 4WD vehicle.
The Falkland Islands are serviced by LAN Airlines that flies to the Falklands every Saturday morning, departing from Santiago and flying via the southern Chilean city of Punta Arenas.
Depending on international connections, It is usually necessary to spend a night in Chile (in Santiago or Punta Arenas) on both south-bound and north-bound flights. Goway Travel has many great stop over options to choose from including wine tours, visits to Easter Island or a stop in the famous Chilean Lakes District. LAN is a oneworld partner and connects with international carriers in Europe, North America, Australasia, and Africa.
In the Falkland Islands travellers will receive a warm welcome from hosts. Falkland Islanders are proud of their heritage and keen to show visitors the sights and sounds that make the Islands such a special destination as is Goway with our two all encompassing itineraries.
