Embark on a fantastic 4x4 adventure out to the north coast of East Falkland. Your journey starts at the pier, where you’ll meet your local driver/guide in a 4x4. Drive for 1 1/2 hours along an unsurfaced road en route to Cape Dolphin and take in the rugged beauty of the islands.


Rock formations locally known as “Stone Runs” will be seen, as will remnants of an Argentine Chinook and an Argentine Puma from the 1982 conflict. Before reaching Cape Dolphin you’ll leave the unsurfaced road for a 30 minute off-road experience.


At North Pond you’ll have the opportunity to get up close and personal with an abundance of Gentoo and Magellanic penguins. King Penguins which regularly visit, might be been seen wandering the very beautiful sandy beach which stretches for approximately half a mile.


The pure white sand, crystal blue water and wandering penguins provide you with stunning photo opportunities. There’s an abundance of birdlife here so you may spot Upland Geese, Grebes, Turkey Vultures, Flightless Steamer Duck and other species. Peale’s Dolphins are occasionally seen frolicking in the surf. A packed lunch is provided.
