6 Adventurous Things to Do in the Falkland Islands

Kraig Becker

More than 70% of the world's population of black-browed albatrosses nest and breed in the Falkland Islands, and the largest of those colonies can be found at a place called Steeple Jason. This tiny island is remote, even by Falklands standards, and it isn't easy to get to. Weather and tides often make it impossible to land there for weeks at a time, but those who are lucky enough to visit this place will be treated to a rare site. Steeple Jason is home to hundreds of thousands of albatrosses, many of which have wingspans that are more than 7 feet in length. And since they see such few visitors, they allow travelers to get within a few meters of their nests. It is an impressive sight to see for sure.
