Stanley Services Limited is pleased to announce the acquisition of Darwin Lodge and approximately 50 acres of surrounding land.

Fortunately FIH were FOR THE SECOND YEAR RUNNING were able to have their own stand at the wonderful BirdFair show in Rutland this year. We are pleased to announce that the stand was kept extremely busy over the 3 day event, with many visitors interested in learning more about the islands and how a visit can be made possible with the expertise of our staff and services. The Falklands is one the most fantastic Bird Life locations in the world, where binoculars are hardly ever needed due to birds of all species being so tame!

Thank you for the arranging of an excellent holiday. The Falklands are really spectacular Rosey and I soaked up the atmosphere. Can I commend your lodge hosts and tour guides, really know how to treat visitors.
Accommodation and food was also excellent.

"We both agree that it is one of the best wildlife experiences we have ever had! It was very well organised, ran like clockwork and would have no hesitation in recommending especially as it is better value than the big tour companies in the UK!"

Falkland Islands Holidays will be attendng the 35th TMLA in Florianopolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil on the 11, 12 & 13 September 2011.

A representative of Falkland Islands Holidays will be joining the Falkland Islands Tourist Board stand for the duration of the show. Please feel free to come along for an informal chat about the Falkland Islands and our tailor made itineraries for groups and indivdual travellers alike.

"We had a great time! Thanks for organising everything - it all went like clockwork, with no uncertainties at all. And good value for money -Volunteer Point - the king penguins left me speechless. I'd also like to comment that the Falkland Islanders are a great bunch of people - very helpful, friendly and resilient!"
