Reach the westernmost outposts in the Falklands and see remote farms that have been family-owned for several generations. Call on New Island which boasts white-sand beaches and turquoise waters that could easily be mistaken for those on a Caribbean island. You may be able to go ashore on Carcass Island where your Expedition Team will look for every opportunity to take you exploring, hiking or cruising to get a closer look at the local wildlife. Stanley, the inviting capital of the Falklands, is a good size for roaming the streets on foot. Or you can join an optional excursion to explore the wilderness and wildlife in the surrounding area
