Volunteer Points remains my must-go place in the Falklands. This is the place where you can see the second largest number of king penguins in the world though it takes you along way back and forth within the same day if you are not staying...More

We booked the Patrick Watts tour early as it gets booked out. It is a long but very interesting drive to Volunteer Point, most of it off-road. You go in a convoy of four wheel drives, driven by a local. It was great to be...More

We did this tour with Tony Smith. It's a long drive to Volunteer point (3 hours, half of it off road) but it's well worth it. There are so many King penguins at this place that we were happy to wander around for 3 hours.

We stayed here for 2nights with Derek and Trudi. They gave us a feeling like we were at home. The room is small but good and clean. You have to share the shower and also save water. From the house you walk in a few...More

We have just stayed at Volunteer Point. What a great experience! of course the King Penguins are a highlight. Hosts Derek and Trudy added SO MUCH to our experience - warm and generous hosts. And Trudy's cooking is super. Highly recommended.
