Stanley & Berthas Beach- Stanley Highlights and Berthas Beach Half Day Tour.
Gentoo Penguins up close in their natural habitat.
We believe this tour is a real Falklands experience! We will do all we can to give you an overview of Stanley and the surrounding areas as well as a wildlife watching experience to remember.
We will meet you at the jetty center in Stanley and together decide on the plan for the day- we believe maintaining some flexibility to the tour is so important, as creating a memorable day is our priority! We will travel across the East Falklands on the way to Bertha’s Beach and will try and pass on as much information as I can about our home.
As we travel we will pass several interesting sights from the battlefields of the Falklands war to the local geological anomaly of the stone runs.
Before you know it we will be arriving at the long white sands of Berthas Beach. A 5-minute walk from the car and we will be surrounded by Gentoo Penguins industriously working away raising their chicks.
A hot drink and snack, and we will be ready to travel back for the guided tour of Stanley the Falklands Capital taking in all the main sights. Then to finish up I can drop you wherever you would like with some time left to explore Stanley or happy to recommend a restaurant/pub if required.
The tour will be a half day trip taking approximately 4-5hrs and will include:
– Pick up in 4WD vehicles from the Stanley area.
– Trip to Berthas Beach- time to explore the white sands of Bertha’s Beach and large colony of Gentoo Penguins. If you’re lucky see the occasional King Penguin and dolphin.
– On returning to Stanley enjoy the guided highlights tour of the Falklands capital and explore the area surrounding Stanley, wildlife, history and battlefields- flexibility built in.
– On completion of the tour you will still have time to explore Stanley yourself and we are happy to recommend somewhere to eat/drink.
– Hot drink and snack along the way.
If you have any specific questions or interest, please feel free to send me a message. I can customize the tour for you.
