FALKLAND ISLANDS HOLIDAYS ATTENDS BIRDFAIR 2012 AT RUTLAND
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!
Many independent travellers were keen to learn that the Falklands is now easily accessible via both the South American LAN airlink via Santiago and works wonderfully as an "Add On" destination if visiting the likes of Chile/Argenitna. Only an hour and 20 minute flight across from Punta Arenas, ensures a 7nt itinerary is a perfect "taster" to the islands. Alternativly, there are two flights a week leaving Brize Norton via the RAF connecting flights. Whether you are interested in the Falklands as a sole destination or as an add on, we are here to offer you tailor made itineraries to suit all your personal requirements.
Birds of prey including one of the rarest, the Striated Caracara, our endemic species such as the Cobbs wren, flightless Steamer duck, over 70% of the worlds Black-browed Albatross and much more can be seen in great numbers on these beautiful islands. Other superb wildlife "up close and personal" experiences will include Elephant Seal, Southern Sea Lion and not so closely, the amazing Killer whale may be viewed close to shore at several of the smaller islands!
The stand was kept busy and it was a wonderful experience for myself and colleague to realise just how much interest there is in the islands and we are happy to answer any questions you may have regarding this wonderful destination. Please email me with any questions or enquires and we shall be pleased to answer you immediately. We are also pleased to announce that we plan to have another stand next year and look forward to seeing you all there.
I would also like to thank all those cleints who have visited the islands with myself recently and who popped by the stand to say hello and share their experiences with others who were more than keen to listen and hear their stories of just how fantastic they thought the islands were - it was wonderful to see you all again......
I look forward to assisting more of you in the future and meeting you at Mount Pleasant Airport on your day of arrival!
