paperback, 176 blz., formaat ca.13,5X21,6
This new, thoroughly updated second edition of Bradtís Falkland Islands remains the only standalone guide to this British Overseas Territory and is ideal for both independent and cruise visitors alike. New for this edition is a dedicated full-colour wildlife and natural history section, as well as all the most recent details needed for a smooth trip, from planning and history to Stanley restaurants and hotels, conservation issues, wildlife watching trips and how to explore beyond the capital. East and West Falkland are covered, and so too are Sea Lion, Pebble, Carcass, Saunders, Keppel, Weddell, Staats and Beaver islands.
Situated in the South Atlantic Ocean over 300 miles from South America the Falkland Islands are one of the truly wild places in the world, a photographerís delight home to albatrosses, penguins and other wildlife as well as to over 3,000 people.
The Falkland Islands are a must-visit location for those interested in the wild outdoors, especially anyone wanting to see penguins, seals and lots more. Itís not all about penguins, though, as the islandsí abundant wildlife and spectacular scenery along with comfortable accommodation, good wholesome food and welcoming people create a wonderful place to visit. The thriving town of Stanley gives way to the wild open spaces of the Ďcampí with its scattered settlements, long sandy beaches, isolated islands and rocky outcrops.
With Bradtís Falkland Islands you can plan how to fly between islands, discover the Ďcampí (rural areas), visit multiple penguin colonies, sample a wide range of cakes and cookies at a Ďsmokoí (morning or afternoon tea break), watch Black-browed Albatrosses, and visit the magnificent collection of artefacts and curios from around the islands at the new Historic Dockyard Museum. Whatever your interest, this is the essential guide for a successful trip.
Will Wagstaff has been visiting the Falkland Islands on a regular basis since 1994. He has explored large areas of the Falklands from the smallest uninhabited islands to the isolated settlements as well as the Ďmetropolisí of Stanley, having now spent over a year on the islands when the collected trips are added up. In recent times Will has also been working on Expedition cruise ships which have taken him to hitherto unvisited and remote areas. His main passion has always been ornithology, but over the years his interests have encompassed all aspects of wildlife. His journeys usually involve leading groups, giving lectures on board etc, so he has been able to communicate his love of wildlife to many.
