West Falkland

Islands · Hiking Trails
The second largest of the Falkland Islands yet home to less than 200 inhabitants, West Falkland makes up for a lack of people with rugged scenery. Hornby Hills run alongside the ocean channel separating the island from East Falkland, reaching an altitude of 700 m (2,300 ft), while ocean waves crash into cliffs at various points along the coast. Thin tree coverage leaves plenty of wide-open space throughout the island. With this kind of setting, the typical West Falkland itinerary includes many outdoor activities. Visitors explore on horseback or their own two feet, anglers try their hand in ocean waters teeming with fish, and guests have many opportunities to see a working farm in action. Falkanders refer to the island as a "camp" because it lies outside the territory's main area of settlement. With a ferry running between the two main islands, it's easy to reach West Falkland from East Falkland. Make West Falkland central to your Falkland Islands travel plans using our Falkland Islands trip planner.
