What we do

Our mission is to enable you to explore the Falkland Islands in the most unique and memorable way possible; with activities available including Kayaking, Climbing, Hill-Walking, Bespoke Wildlife Tours and Surfing, there is something for everyone. To ensure a personal and bespoke experience we deliberately keep our groups small, with a maximum of six people for each trip. We pride ourselves on the unique experiences we offer, the interests of the group will always shape the experience.

What's important to us

At Falklands Outdoors, we want to ensure our impact on the environment is kept to a minimum. Eco- Friendly Tourism & Sustainability are two topics to which we are dedicated. Participating in outdoor adventurous activities we get to visit many remote areas which are rich in natural beauty, wildlife and relatively untouched natural habitats. It is our duty to protect this environment. By implementing as many sustainable practices as possible, we hope to ensure the continual enjoyment of the wild and untouched Falkland Islands for generations to come. A symbol of this commitment is our membership of Green Tourism. This scheme provides accreditation and encouragement for tourism businesses to reduce the environmental impact of their activities.


Where possible we try to:

  • Promote the ‘leave no trace’ principal with all out tours and encourage groups to do their bit to leave the Falklands cleaner than how they found it by picking up one piece of ocean plastic from any beach we land on.
  • Monitor the wildlife and habitats we come into contact with and report back to the Environmental planning section of the Falkland Islands Government.
  • Take all necessary precautions when visiting nature reserves and vulnerable areas such as spraying footwear to stop the transport of bird carried disease to remote islands.
  • Support the campaign for a plastic free Falklands by using no single use plastics including moving from tea bags to loose leave teas on tours.
  • Reduce waste by recycling all the materials currently possible in the Falklands. We are also active in campaigning to increase the scope of recycling in general in the Falklands.
  • Reuse and recycle materials for our shop run by Alice Clarke Jewellery, either recovering or buying materials second hand.
  • Monitor our energy and water usage by using low energy light bulbs, switching off lights, turning off stand by switches, turning off radiators when rooms are unoccupied, buying A rated appliances.
  • Use local produce and suppliers for snacks and lunches provided on trips and minimise food waste by asking guests to order preferences in advance of preparation for packed lunches.
  • Use fair trade products where possible.
  • Encourage guests to use local shops, cafés and restaurants.
  • Promote eco-friendly activities through our tour selection of mountain biking, kayaking and hill walking.
  • Encourage eco-friendly travel by renting mountain bikes and providing maps for walkers and cyclists to borrow.
  • Use biodegradable detergents when cleaning wetsuits and bikes.
  • Use recycled paper for advertising and business cards.
  • Offer special rates for schools and youth groups.
  • Support local charities by offering raffle prizes and training/support for people undertaking events to raise money for charity.
  • Operate out of just one venue each day if possible to reduce fuel emissions.
  • Maintain staff training to Falkland Islands Tourist Guide status and Wildlife Safe (WISE) accreditation.
  • Continually look at ways to improve our commitment to green issues.
