This tiny, far-flung archipelago, lying 300 miles off the coast of South America’s Cape Horn, is home to some three thousand residents. Officially an overseas territory of Great Britain, ownership of the Falkland Islands has long been disputed by Argentina, to whom the islands are known as Islas Malvinas. Life centres around the tiny capital, Stanley, whose atmosphere is reminiscent of a classic British village; red telephone boxes and letterboxes pop up here and there, while the tiny English-style pubs serve up traditional pub grub like fish and chips.

The Falklands boast stunning biodiversity, with dozens of breeding and migratory bird species calling the archipelago home. Visitors are often surprised by the Falklands’ sandy beaches, teeming with various penguin species, including Magellanic, macaroni and rockhopper penguins. The latter two are the ‘punk rockers’ of the penguin world, with dazzling yellow eyebrows and a cheeky attitude. Even more impressive is the 121,000-strong colony of king penguins living on Volunteer Beach, outnumbering the humans at 40 to 1!
